Easy Translator {Giveaway}

Editor’s note: The following review was done by Sisi Martinez Purfield, a bilingual teacher mom of a bilingual preschooler. When I first saw the Easy Translator by Ingenio I was excited to see if my 3.5 year old son would like it.  My son is pretty bilingual although not nearly as fluent in Spanish as he is in English.  I gave it to him and thought he might be interested in doing a few of the “theme” vocabulary cards.  WhenRead More ...

Elmo’s A to Zoo Adventure Videogame

When I was a child I loved watching Sesame Street, and was quite excited when given the opportunity to review Elmo’s A to Zoo Adventure, the videogame. I loved it!  The graphics are great, and the games are fun and educational! The games are designedo be played by young children, but the difficulty level adapts to the child’s ability. The games become more challenging as the player’s skills develop. The audio and visual directions are easy for children to follow, andRead More ...

Javier Doll Sings in Spanish {Giveaway}

When Javier arrived at my door, I was curious to see what my son would do. I pulled this adorable little doll out of the box and Isaiah smirked. He seemed curious,but confused, until I squeezed Javier’s hand and he started singing a familiar song: “Había una vez un barquito chiquitito….” That was all it took for my boy to become a fan of dolls. Javier, the latest in the line of plush dolls from Baby Abuelita Productions, sings fiveRead More ...

Bilingual Laugh & Learn Learning Kitchen {Giveaway}

It’s so true what they say about second children. They don’t get as much attention as the first one…for obvious reasons. I hate to say it, but it’s happened in our home with my little boy. He’s barely gotten any new clothes because I’ve used a lot hand-me-downs. In terms of toys, besides the handful of cars and trucks he’s received as gifts, he’s inherited all of his sister’s baby toys. So when Fisher Price came asking if we wereRead More ...

Puerto Rico Map Puzzle {Giveaway}

I was so happy to find out that Ingenio, one of our long-time sponsors, has added two more learning puzzles to their already impressive list of bilingual toys. One of Mexico, which Ana Lilian wrote about last week, and the other one of Puerto Rico. While I don’t hail from either country, I’ve very strong ties to both of them. Not only did I live in Mexico as a child, but I’ve family and a lot of dear friends whoRead More ...

“We Did It” Dora – The New 10th Anniversary Bilingual Doll {Giveaway}

As we mentioned last week, this month marks the 10th anniversary of the creation of Dora the Explorer character—the energetic bilingual Latina girl loved by all children and their parents, but especially by those of us raising bilingual children. In honor of this milestone, Fisher Price just debuted a singing and dancing “We Did It” Dora doll that will put your niños a bailar—or at least that’s what happened at my house when she came out of the box! TheRead More ...

Spanish Buzz: Toy Story 3 Bilingual Action Figure {Giveaway}

My almost 4-year-old daughter, Vanessa, is ahead of her time. Last year, she discovered her older brother’s 2-disc DVD collector’s edition of Toy Story 1 and 2 and immediately became addicted to them. These movies have been favorites at my house ever since I can remember because they became popular during the time my stepson was a small boy. First, Vanessa fell in love with Woody and soon thereafter, with Buzz. So much so that she asked for the themeRead More ...
