Keep Your Children Learning at Home This School Year with WonderMind!


If you have children too young to be starting school this year, don't let them get away without learning...at home this school year!! My son and daughter are learning this year with me at home while we use our new WonderMind Learning Systems!



WonderMind is a complete five-piece interactive learning system designed to work together to reinforce a love of learning. Developed by the world-renowned child development experts at Benesse Corporation, a global leader in education and publishing, WonderMind provides parents with the basic tools they need to help their child get the best possible start in life and lay the foundation for academic success.


We received one of each of their Toddler and Kids kits because I have children in each age group.


The Toddler Kit is for ages 1-2 and includes Five great learning items!

  1. Family Fun Show DVD: In considering children's safety issues and their limited attention span, they designed each DVD program to be 20 minutes long. The DVDs are full of interactive content that allow you and your child to sing and dance together while also communicating with each other both verbally and non-verbally. Your child will have a great time learning and playing!
  2. Teegy Puppet: Your child will get excited to see Teegy, a character from the DVD, come alive. Fun activities that promote learning through imitation and repetition are particularly effective for children aged 1 to 2 years. By imitating what Teegy says or does, your child can play peekaboo, and learn to say simple things like "Here you go" and "Thank you." Don't forget to have a group hug at the end!
  3. Time Together Play Book: The Play Book book helps your child deepen his or her understanding of the topics introduced in the DVD. Your child will enjoy learning with various topics and quizzes stimulating his or her curiosity.
  4. Colorshape Blocks Educational Toy: Your child will enjoy playing with Colorshape Blocks, while learning how to put things together and take them apart. But once in a while, we’d like you to take up the challenge. Our Time Together Play Book includes many examples of things you can make with Colorshape Blocks, like cars, cameras, and slides, and how to build them. By creating something that your child likes, you will expand your child’s imagination and play repertoire.
  5. WonderMind Parenting Guide: The WonderMind Parenting Guides provide valuable information and tips for busy parents, helping you to communicate and connect with your child, deepening the bond you share.

My favorite part of the Toddler kit are the Teegy Puppet and Colorshape Blocks Educational Toy. These items provided hours and hours of entertainment for my children and they can be used in so many different ways!

The Kids Learning System is equally fun and educational!


It includes:
  1. Wonder and Discovery Theater DVD: In considering children's safety issues and their limited attention span, they designed each DVD program to be 20 minutes long. They also created programs to have interactive features so that your child won't get bored just sitting and watching them. You don't need to sit and watch the DVD with your child, but it's good to watch over your child and check in at times. The topics covered in the DVD are also featured in the Picture Book, the Workbook and Educational Toy. The DVD is designed to promote intellectual interest by building on your child’s natural sense of wonder.
  2. Wonder and Discovery Picture Book: The Picture Book helps your child deepen his or her understanding of the topics introduced in the DVD. Your child will enjoy learning with various topics and quizzes stimulating his or her curiosity.
  3. Discovery Workbook: The Workbook allows your child to review what they have learned at his or her own pace while also having fun. You can use the reward stickers that are included in the book to stimulate your child’s willingness to learn more.
  4. Tick-Tock's Talking Toy Clock: Tick-Tock's Talking Toy Clock is equipped with a “quiz button.” When your child presses the button, Teegy will ask him or her to set the clock to a certain time. Ask your child to listen to Teegy’s voice carefully, adjust the hands of the clock to the right positions, and check the correct answer. Your child will be absorbed in these activities and have a great time, even while playing alone! Tick-Tock's Talking Toy Clock is a perfect Educational Toy that helps preschoolers (ages 4-5) start to learn about the concept of time.
  5. WonderMind Parenting Guide: The WonderMind Parenting Guides provide valuable information and tips for busy parents, helping you to communicate and connect with your child, deepening the bond you share.

My son's favorite item from the Kid's Kit was the Tick-Tock's Talking Toy Clock. He played for it for hours learning about telling time and also in pretend play!


He also really liked to look through the Wonder and Discovery Picture Book. He loved looking at the pictures and learning about Mysterious Creatures of the Sea - some of his favorite animals!!
