Our best seller and Lily’s favorite toy right now. She literally walks around everywhere with them. She absolutely loves the pictures and learning the new signs. A few weeks back she walked around with the cracker flash card all day. She kept showing us and we continued talking about crackers and signing the word to her. At the end of the day she walked in, put the card on the table in front of me and signed ‘cracker’. Very proud of herself to say the least.
With Jackson I kept the cards in the diaper bag for those emergency occassions when we were out and had to wait (ie. for the check at a restaurant). We could, for the most part, successfully avoid tantrums because he would get caught up in the pictures and signing with us.
Our illustrations are fun and attention-grabbing for both baby and adult. A fun way to play, interact and engage with baby. By talking about the pictures and having the graphic of how to make the respective sign on the back, the cards are a great way to make signing fun. The child is surrounded by both verbal and sign language.
We sometimes get asked why we don’t have the signs for ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ in our flash card set. It wasn’t an oversight. We wanted to focus on words that could easily be identified in an illustration. It would be quite difficult to convey the concept of ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ so that a baby would immediately know what was being portrayed. Thus, we made the decision to include please and thank you in our Little Helper Signing Sticker ‘Around the House’ set. A great way to encourage signing and repetition.
Our set includes baby’s first signs, food signs, farm animals as well as some zoo animals. They’re not meant to be an exhaustive resource or a way to test baby’s retention – just a fun way to interact with baby while learning a little something along the way.
We hope you enjoy using the flash cards with your children. More importantly, we hope you have fun playing with them; creating memories talking and signing with your children!
