Munchkin Math Review & Contest

Little Man is constantly asking if it's time to eat lunch, time to watch cartoons, or time to go to grandma's house. It's much easier giving him a specific time that we'll be doing something, rather than hearing him ask, is it time now? or now? how about now?

So, I've explained to him how to read a digital clock, as we have one in the bedrooms and one in the kitchen. We've also discussed how to read a traditional clock, but he has struggled with telling time on one.

We were recently introduced to Munchkin Math. Offering DVDs for kids 2-9, Munchkin Math is designed to make learning fun. The three available DVDs include Shapes, Telling Time, and Counting Money. The DVDs are interactive experiences that include a variety of learning skills.
Our Thoughts
Little Man and I were able to watch Telling Time, featuring Wendy, Stan, and Cuckoo. He loved Cuckoo, who was learning to tell time on a clock.

The DVD contains many interactive moments and incorporates rhymes and fun motions to help kids remember the rules of telling time. I caught Little Man doing the actions along with the kids on TV and repeating what they were saying.

Telling Time is a fun way to help kids learn to tell time. By the end of the DVD, my 5 year old was saying the time on the clock before they said it on screen. Hopefully the things he learned will stick with him!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Munchkin Math and received a sample DVD to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
