COOL BUBBAS I Great Christmas Gift- Teach Kids Languages with Baby Boom Boom


Baby Boom Boom

Baby Boom Boom make bilingual products to teach babies and toddlers a foreign language through use of musical instruments and CD's. Juliet Machan, Co-founder of Baby Boom Boom says: 'As all good playgroups and nurseries have known for years, playing music, singing and dancing, and repetition is a good, and fun, place to start introducing language. English and a second language is the foundation of all babyboomboom products.'

I am English but decided from the start to bring my daughter up as bilingual, and decided on Spanish as the second language, which I had learnt at college, and is spoken in many places around the world.

I had been looking for a while for a nursery rhyme CD in both languages, so the Baby Boom Boom CD was absolutely perfect! The instruments are also great quality and add fun to listening. Recently I did a long car trip with my 22 month old who is normally a nightmare to keep occupied in the car, and the CD kept her quiet the entire way there and back! Amazing! It was very well pronounced etc too, although the numbers pronounced in South American way rather than Spanish way, but not a significant thing.

Of course, you don't have to have a bilingual child to use these products, they are a great way of introducing a second language to babies and toddlers. Young children have a special gift for absorbing languages that we adults no longer have, and they are like little sponges! These would therefore make a great unique Xmas gift for a baby or young child.

The junior band-bag comes with a babyboomboom CD (you choose English plus the other language), along with a tambourine, a recorder, a castanet and a maraca.
