Learning a New Language with Dino Lingo

Learning a New Language with Dino Lingo

Dino Lingo

Disclosure:  The item featured below is a part of my Holiday Gift Guide.  I was provided an item in exchange for an honest review.  Any and all opinions expressed are my own and have not been influenced.

As a mother I can’t stress enough how important it is for your children to start learning a second language or even several other languages, even if it’s just the basics.  In our world today it’s important for our children to help with securing jobs and also living a a multi-cultural world.  I love shows like Ni Hao Kai Lan and Dora because they started to get my kids excited about learning new languages and about those cultures as well.  As parents my husband and I have decided to go beyond those shows and introduce our children to more words so they can become much more familiar with other languages and also to help them develop as well-rounded students.  Our newest discovery is the Dino Lingo Language Home Education Kit.

When our (French) kit arrived I was surprised, it was so well packed but once we started digging in to review the items there is so much information in the one kit.  It comes in a box that’s perfect for gifting you just have to wrap it and tag it.

The full kit comes with all you need to get your child started with learning a new language and you can also learn right along with them by making it a family event.  The full kit includes:

  • 5 DVDs
  • 150 flashcards
  • 10 posters
  • a vocabulary book
  • a coloring book
  • world map
  • French flag
  • parents guide
  • a dinosaur plush toy
  • progress chart and report
  • songs CD

You’re sure to spends hours and hours learning from this kit.  I love that there are not only DVDs but we also have the flash cards that we can use in the car and on the go.  We are always looking for ways to incorporate the words we are learning with our children in everyday life.  The posters are great for the walls and having a CD for the car helps us keep the radio off and keep the learning going on the road as well.  The full kit is currently priced at $159.95 and Dino Lingo is currently running a holiday special for 15% off if you use coupon code “HOLIDAY15”.  Shipping is also free for US customers.  They also carry a basic kit for $99.95 (includes: 5 DVDs, 150 flashcards, dino poster, parents guide and progress chart), a poster set for $59.95 or the DVD set for $89.95.

Dino Lingo offers a long list of languages to choose from for your children.  We picked French but there are forty three different options to choose from, they include:

Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Bahasa (Indonesian), Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew,
Hindi, Hungarian, Irish (Gaelic), Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Malay, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (European),

Smart Lab Toys Review

Before I even had children I had always said that I would make sure when we brought them presents for the holidays, birthdays and good reports we would make sure we included educational toys.  I love toys that serves two purposes, they provide entertainment for your children as well as educational value for their growing minds. That’s why I love all the great toys over at SmartLab Toys.  Their toys allow kids to explore, create, and experiment with hands on learning.  They offer toys for kids who like experimenting in their science line.  You can find great gift ideas like their DJ Rock Dock – which lets your child build their own speaker dock for their iPod, iPhone or other audio device.  They will learn the basics of electronics by investigating how speakers and amplification works.  You can spend the time building this project with your child and encourage them to learn and have fun.

They also offer lots of other great toys in their Science lab, including their science lab kit, the amazing squishy brain, human squishy body, all natural spa day, glitter spa lab and much more.  They have toys for the little artist in your life as well.  The kits in the art line are all amazing and made to expand your child’s creativity with endless fun.  The kits include gross art, pink art, glitter art, rock fashion studio, car design, cupcake decorating, itty bitty art studio kit and so much more.  I really like the wallscapes winged wonders.

There is something for any child on the site and you can feel assured you are getting an amazing product because of numerous awards some of their toys are getting.  The DJ Rock Dock has gotten three awards this year including Parents Magazine 2012 Best Toy Award.  I should also point out that I love companies that has other great offers for consumers.  SmartLab Toys has an amazing section called their Free Zone.  That’s right a free zone with lots of activities, trivia and coloring downloads to keep your kids busy during the holiday break.  They have seasonal items along with everyday things to do.  Like this salt dough ornaments activity you can download and try with your kids this weekend.
