Featuring Brainy Baby ~ #3 CLOSED

It's another great Brainy Baby giveaway!!! I told you they were spoiling us!!! Here's 2 more wonderful items they sent to us for review and will be giving away to one of YOU!!!

Alphabet flashcards...
and "ABC's, Introducing the Alphabet" DVD...
These two products work perfectly in combination so I decided to bundle them together for 1 winner! The flashcards are a great addition to Tot School, with adorable graphics on one side and bright, bold upper and lowercase letters on the other. They are extremely sturdy and well made.

I added them in with some other ABC items we have to work with during Tot School...


The video is very simple, and repetitive. For a mom, it is rather boring but Krash loved it. Even Ladybug watches it when she's in the room and Pac Man (age 7) still hasn't outgrown these types of movies. The simple repetitive nature allows a young child to really focus on the letter names and sounds. I do not recommend using a DVD like this solely for teaching the ABCs but I think it's fine in moderation. Honestly I would lose my sanity if it weren't for some DVDs like this one...a mom's gotta have a break sometimes...especially a homeschooling mom!!!

Brainy Baby is giving one of you BOTH of the products featured in this post (flashcards and DVD)!!! To enter to win, please visit Brainy Baby and tell me what OTHER video of theirs you think your child would enjoy!

After you do that, you can gain some extra entries by doing any of the following, remember to leave an extra comment for each item so they will count as entries...

  4. If you follow me on Twitter, give yourself an extra entry!
  5. If you will take a photo of your child playing with their new stuff and post about it and Brainy Baby on your blog if you are the winner, give yourself an extra entry!!! (also an honor thing)
This Giveaway is open for the USA Only!

I will select a winner using Random.org, so be sure you leave a separate comment for each entry, I will also be moderating comments to check that your entries are valid-please be honest!

Contest ENDS September 20, 2009. Winner will be announced here, and emailed (your email MUST be in each comment/or enabled in blogger). Winner must reply to my email within 48 hours or another winner will be chosen.
