Monki See Monki Doo



Monki See Monki Doo makes learning entertaining and fun with flashcards, DVD’s and books for babies. 


I received Baby’s First Words DVD and the Know Your Monkey Book.


The DVD is about 30  minutes long.  It has a cast of humans, puppets, and live animals.  There is also a slideshow section and a parents section.  

The movie part of it shows a word and then many types of that word.  For example; Hair comes up then shows a horse puppet getting his hair combed by a zebra puppet along with a poem and then shows a girl combing her hair and then shows a hairy monkey.  The video is full of songs, and poems, music and nice pictures.

The slideshow section is a condensed version of the show. With the words and pictures being shown faster.  It does not show every picture that the video shows.   There is also no poems or songs to go along with this section.


The parents section is a message from the creator about why she created this program and how to use it. 


My thoughts:

The DVD did hold Tyler’s attention the entire time.  Emily even caught on to the theme song and when she would walk around the house singing it, Tyler would get excited and look at the TV to see if it was on.   Tyler already knew some body parts, like nose, eyes, ears, toes, belly, elbow, etc.   There are also other words on this DVD such as pacifier, diaper, mommy, daddy, girl, boy, kiss, horse, dog, and monkey of course.  


The book is fun and perfect for his age (22 months).  He does recognize that it goes along with the movie.  He will go grab the book and walk around saying book-a, book-a, book-a, until someone reads the book to him.  It is so dang cute! 



I can’t say he is reading the words yet, we have only had it a short while.  I can’t say if this will teach him to read, but what I can say is that he loves it.  I do think that it is teaching him more words.  He has started talking more since watching it, that could be age or the exposure to the words so often.  It works great to calm him down at bedtime.  Except he does have to get up and dance at the theme song.  


This really reminds me of digital flashcards in movie form.





My children’s thoughts:

Tyler loves this video, we have added it into our daily routine and he does not let me forget it.  Every night he takes a bath, we watch the video, read the book and then go into our other bedtime books.  (Tyler  stays up later than the other children, and gets up later too, that works for us)  He really enjoys this video as far as our spending time together.  He asks to watch it more than I will allow him too.    The book we read over and over and over.  I think that he really enjoys having a special book of his own.
