Abby Apple and her Fruit Friends, a very friendly host (Abby Apple) takes children through the world of nature to see the different types of fruit and where they come from. At the toddler stage, children are making decisions about food and building their own eating habits.
This introduction to the world of healthy foods will be an encouragement to make the right choices. Colors, shapes, and letters are addressed appropriately as well, making the teaching deep and relevant. The engaging format and minimal animation is perfect for this age child.
He or she will enjoy interacting with Abby, her friends, and the train full of other kids. The learning that comes from the video will complement the teaching that comes from parents at this crucial stage of development. This is a great addition to every parent’s toolbox as we guide our child through this important phase of life.
As one of the few series out there designed for toddlers instead of preschoolers, this Snapatoonies series is a must have for every parent. Offering variety with consistency, the DVDs are all interactive, focused on vital basic concepts, and simply animated to allow the toddler brain to focus and process. Numbers, colors, animals, fruit, and shapes are the basic ideas presented, but are just the beginning. Just as with life, learning opportunities are waiting around every corner.
Teachable moments are seized to provide depth, but accessibility to the content. The varying character hosts and plot lines make this series one that bucks the repetitive pattern of so many children’s series. The journey through the episodes doesn’t feel like a broken record.
My child interacts, learns, remembers, and makes life connections. This is a great supplement to the early learning activities we are doing with our children each day. Highly recommended by this parent and teacher.
