There is no question that kids of all ages will grasp concepts faster when the material being taught is fun, engaging and interactive. Back in the day, there was the Friendly Giant and Mr. Rogers, and then there seemed to be a long gap where loveable online educators were missing. But now the new generation of kiddos is being scholastically and socially enriched by a cheerful character called Blippi! Debuting in 2014, chances are if you have younger children, you already know about this bubbly, energetic children’s entertainer. His main focus is to educate young children while making the whole experience a blast. And kids love him. Check out his Youtube videos as well.
Blippi: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes
Blippi Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes is a colorful board book enhanced with a bright orange sound button. When kids press the button, a bouncy tune – based on the classic Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes song – will encourage kids to automatically get up and wiggle and dance. Blippi highlights each body part by pointing and asking interactive questions. Children will be instructed to do various actions with that body part; nod your head, shrug your shoulders, blink your eyes and so on. All the images feel animated and will encourage kids to mimic the actions. It’s a great book that teaches children about specific body parts. FYI: The music plays for 20 seconds and there is no shut off option.
Blippi Let’s Look and Find
Blippi Let’s Look and Find! is another cool toddler board book that encourages participation with fun flap pages. When kids open the book, they’ll find two pages featuring 12 different objects that relate to a specific experience. When they open the flaps, they can explore and observe the scene and find these very objects. Kids will learn to associate unique items with six different places to visit. Some of the scenes include the beach, farmer’s market, and everyday things in a classroom. These scenes are great for visual and sensory stimulation, concept building and allow imaginations to flourish. The images are beautifully illustrated with interesting characters and lots of gorgeous rich colors. It’s perfect for toddlers and preschoolers and homeschooling.
Blippi So Much To See Coloring Book
The Blippi So Much to See! is a coloring book that comes with 50+ stickers, 4 primary colored crayons, and eight paint cakes and a paintbrush. Its 128 pages are filled with Blippi and a lineup of various scenes, animals, vehicles, dinosaurs, everyday activities, and much more. The first half of the book is for coloring and the latter half for painting. You’ll notice that some pages are perforated and have a picture on one side only. This is so kids can add as much paint as they like and it won’t seep into the next image. Each image also has a caption that explains the scene or may invite an action with a question. The images are also educational and allow young kids to observe and grasp concepts easier. Plus, kids can add the included stickers to complete their artistic creations and display them in their room or put in on the fridge for the family to enjoy. It’s a fun coloring book and kids will love it.
Blippi, I Like That Coloring Book
Blippi, I Like That, is a 46-page coloring and activity book combined for double the fun. It comes with four primary-colored crayons and over 50 cool stickers. These stickers are a little larger than the ones in the “So Much to See” coloring book. Aside from coloring, preschoolers will enjoy some mazes, connect the dots, drawing, matching, learning the alphabet, animal sounds and so much more. This activity book encourages and nurtures ingenuity and young imaginations to be creative. It’s great for memory, concentration, reasoning and honing fine motor skills. FYI: Some of the images are duplicates and kids will spot them in the “So Much to See” coloring book as well.
