So Smart! Review and Giveaway!!!


I am always looking for new activities, good products for my son to play and also learn too. I few weeks ago I found those SO Smart! DVDs that I like. They make learning a fun and motivating thing, and that is all I want for Lucas.  I think this DVD will help Lucas engage with the world around him, and give him a better understanding of the vocabulary he learns every day.
Here is what So Smart! has to say about this product:
"What Makes So Smart! Different?
Since So Smart! pioneered the baby-toddler video category in 1997, a number of other brands have been introduced into the marketplace. But as countless parents, educators and professional organizations will attest, So Smart! remains their top choice. Here are some of the reasons why:
So Smart! uses...
Gently animated, bright colors and simple images that are specially developed for babies and toddlers.
Minimal, smooth scene transitions, choreographed like a ballet of images woven together, while avoiding the use of sudden changes in viewpoint or camera angles, which can confuse and over-stimulate babies and toddlers.
Slow, easy-to-follow pace that encourages interaction and participation—usually in the form of laughing, clapping, "talking," and dancing!
A unique technique that builds each new subject matter using different shapes, creating a puzzle-like effect and the excitement of "What happens next?"
Narration, varied contexts and repetition to introduce first words, allowing babies to grasp the sounds of words and eventually, their meanings. Read our Our Ten Tips on Language for Little Ones.
Original artwork and adorable characters that are engaging for this age group.
Specially-selected classical music, or original music scores, that are enjoyable for both little ones and their parents!
additional activities that are included in each DVD, for parents and children to do together."
You can purchase your own So Smart DVD here.

What I did like about the DVD:
Pictures- I like how they did not over stimulated the pictures and background with too much color or graphics. The pictures are clear, with bright colors and pretty simple.
Storyline – The stories are related to a kid day by day activity such as playing outside in the mud, hearing the phone ring.
Short Clips – The DVD is divided into 5 segments, what makes it just long enough to catch a toddlers attention.
Activities – This DVD has additional printable activities for your child.
My suggestions;
I do think that the story could happen a little faster than it is. It does take a little long to for example to change images. Other than that I would recommend this DVD to anyone.
