Whistlefritz sent me their new French for Kids DVD and CD for review on my dad blog. The products are intended for children ages two to seven. The DVD is titled French for Kids: Dedans et Dehors (Inside and Out), and the CD is titled French for Kids: Allons Danser! (Let’s Dance!) As you can tell by the titles, the products are intended to help children learn French. We’ve only seen the DVD and listened to CD once so far. As a result, I can’t tell if my kids actually learned any French. But I have a feeling if they watch and listen a few more times, they’ll pick up some of the language. The key is repetition. And thanks to Whistlefritz, your kids can learn French too. A reader of my dad blog can win either the French for Kids DVD or CD (winner’s choice). BTW, I prefer the CD over the DVD because the tunes are lovely and the kids can listen to the songs when we’re driving around in my manly mini-van.
The Dedans et Dehors (Inside and Out) DVD has a list price of $19.99. The 35-minute language immersion DVD blend live-action with lively animation and amusing characters that catch the eye and engage the imagination. The DVD has French subtitles and includes an easy-to-use translation guide for parents and teachers, who are first time learners of French. Dedans et Dehors has won a Parents’ Choice Silver Award, Mom’s Choice Gold Award, Dove Foundation’s Family-Approved Seal and a Mr. Dad Seal of Approval.
The Allons Danser! (Let’s Dance!) CD has a list price of $14.99. The 40-minute musical CD is a delightful collection of catchy original tunes and beloved traditional favorites performed by internationally acclaimed vocalists Marie-Louise Desage and Didier Prossaird. From “Bonjour Les Amis” to “Au Revoir,” kids and adults will be happily immersed in irresistible rhythms and catchy songs that introduce French words and phrases such as numbers (“Un, Deux et Trois”), parts of the body (“La Tête), Les Épaules”/Head, Shoulders) and children’s favorite topics “Quand Je Serai Grand”/When I’m Big.” A rollicking rendition of “La Vieux MacDonald” (Old MacDonald) puts a French twist on a beloved classic.
