Learning the Alphabet, letter sounds for toddlers, preschoolers, and spellings for older kids becomes effortless with the title 'Baby Learns Alphabet and Phonics'. Kids can also pick up a variety of shapes and colors from the 'Baby Learns Shapes and Colors' video/DVD which teaches children to think beyond the constraints of a text book and use their imagination to blend different shapes to form new objects in 2-3 dimension. A wide range of shapes and colors are introduced to the preschooler. The third DVD is on Numbers and Animals - 'Baby Learns Numbers and Animals with Mr. Twiddles'.
The plot includes Mr. Twiddles, who is a cute and round man, who appears to have misplaced his little lamb Doodle. His adventures to find his lamb Doodle take him far and wide. He visits different countries and meets a number of animals - 1 zebra in Africa, 2 Polar Bears in Alaska and so on all the way upto 10 animals. 10 is the magic number all parents of toddlers and preschoolers want their kids to master. Counting numbers in reverse, addition, subtraction, equality (more or less) are some of the other initial mathematical concepts introduced through pure edutainment.
