TOS Crew Review: Math Tutor Young Minds DVD

This numbers and counting video from is an excellent introduction or review for children just starting their math adventure. This is a great video for the under "6-ish" crowd.

What makes this special? The excellent music and beautiful, colorful photos. There are approximately 12 photos for each number from 1 to 10. So you would see a picture, count the objects in the picture, and then make the sound for the picture, if it makes a sound. Pictures include (farm and wild) animals, trucks, airplanes, birds, and more. This is then set to beautiful classical music by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, and others.

There are also bonus features: Guessing the picture, dot to dot, and puzzles. My boys especially enjoyed the guessing the picture feature (I can't tell you what those are ;-)

My boys, although older, did enjoy the video. Because they are 7,8, and 9, I doubt they will watch this over and over again. However it was engaging enough for them to sit and watch it once through. It is an absolutely beautiful video that I am sure younger children would love. It does have 3 awards (Dr. Troy 10 best Audio Video Products, Creative Child Magazine 2009 TOP CHOICE Award, and WINNER

I do think this is a great video for the age intended.
