I purchased my first So Smart video (Volume 1) when my son was around 6 months old. One night, my son woke up in the middle of the night screaming. Nothing I tried settled him down. Exhausted, I finally brought him in bed with us, turned on the TV and VCR, pushed the Play button, and turned on the So Smart! video. After a few minutes, my baby started watching the video and immediately stopped crying. He was mesmerized by the simple objects and soothing music. He sat in my arms (at 3 a.m!) and quietly watched the video for 30 minutes. I was astonished (and pleasantly surprised.) It was a god-send!
I immediately ordered two other So Smart! videos and was equally impressed. By watching So Smart! Volume 3: All About Letters with my son, he could recognize most of the letters of the alphabet by the time he was one and-a-half. It was amazing!
Our son is now 3 years old, and everybody keeps asking us, "How do you teach him all this stuff" and I tell them about the So Smart! video series....
So Smart! videos are an interactive way for you to spend quality time with your little one. I highly recommend these award-winning products. The videos may seem simple and uninteresting to an adult, but they're just what a little mind needs to grow!
Here's basically how it works: for the letter B, the B slowly, piece by piece, turns into a flying bee and the letter B then reads Bee. For C there are puffy clouds that move and then you see that they really are coming from the exhaust pipe of a car. C for Car. For E an elephant walks on screen and then falling rectangular shapes fall from the sky and the elephant bounces them up with his trunk. They bounce up and fall into the shape of an E. One of my favorite Mozart pieces, "Turkish March" is played for the letter R. The R has little legs and feet and runs all over the screen.
This is a very cute video. I like that it is slower pace which gives kids time to let each thing sink in. Too many baby videos are flashy and too fast. I have reviewed all the other So Smart videos so please read those reviews also.
You may want to play the video in sections, like watch the first section (A-F) the first time, see how it goes. If baby is ready to move forward, play the first and second sections the next time.
