I love these flash cards! They’re nice and sturdy and hold up through lots of use. The illustrations are simple and so cute! Great idea all around!
I so love and appreciate these books. We are in the process of adopting our daughter from Taiwan. She’s 3 and only speaks Mandarin. We have had monthly video chats with her for the last 11 months, which has been difficult because of her age and the language barrier. I recently bought this starter pack with the wand and 5 books and also a set of the flash cards. We showed them to her over our last call and we had never seen her so engaged! We’re realizing it’s actually going to help her learn English at first and then hopefully help her retain or relearn Mandarin later, which is amazing! We’re excited to slowly add more books to our collection! One feature I love is the headphone jack option because she’ll be able to use them on the long flight home. Thanks for doing what you do!
These books have been so helpful to our family! It’s so awesome to see more bilingual resources to learn Mandarin!
We have been learning Korean for close to 2 years now. However, with no native speaker in the home, I am always looking for ways to incorporate the language from different angles (and have them hear native speaking). I had my eye on these for months, and have not been disappointed. Immediately, both my kids took to them, repeating the words and phrases. It’s a great way for them to feel like they are getting some ‘tech time’, but with no screens. They also pick them up randomly throughout the day, which is awesome. We got two wands so they could each read different books at the same time.
I wouldn’t buy these for adults, but, as an adult-learner, I appreciate having them in the house, as they’re even a bit useful for me!
My baby loves to play with the wand and tag the books. She in particular love the music when she points to the blank spaces lol. Even my husband of learning Mandarin with my baby. Totally recommend it.
