So Smart! - Sights & Sounds/Shapes/Musical Instruments

Includes - So Smart! Sights and Sounds (1997) So Smart! Shapes (1998) So Smart! Musical Instruments (2000) So Smart! Sights and Sounds Intended to stimulate babies' brains and exercise their memories, this first volume of the So Smart! series is designed on the basis of studies that have tried to identify what babies like to hear and see. Accompanied by pleasant, soothing music by great composers such as Bach and Beethoven, a series of animations containing simple colors, shapes, contrasting patterns, and geometric forms are presented for small children (3 months to 3 years old) - to help increase their concentration skills and accustom them to recognizing objects. Some parents have reported that their babies imitate the motions of the objects and faces, laugh at the pictures, and love to move with the music. Participating in these activities together may be another way for parents and small children to have fun. ~ Alice Duncan, All Movie Guide So Smart! Shapes The second volume in the award-winning So Smart! series, So Smart! Shapes stimulates young children with simple geometric shapes, objects, and moving patterns that transform into familiar images such as animated animals, everyday objects, faces, and more. Set to the classical music of Handel, Tchaikovsky, and other musical luminaries, the program features Cecil the Circle, Suzie the Square, and Traci the Triangle. These characters show children how simple shapes can be part of anything from fish and bubbles to clocks and trucks. This video is designed for babies aged six months to toddlers and children to age four. The critically acclaimed So Smart! series consistently wins awards, such as Parenting Magazine's Best Video of the Year and the Film Advisory Board's Award of Excellence. ~ Steve Blackburn, All Movie Guide So Smart! Musical Instruments The fifth volume in the award-winning So Smart! series, Musical Instruments (formerly titled Baby Music School: Classical), introduces babies and toddlers to the distinct sounds of different instruments by means of animation matched with music and instruments. For example, the program features an elephant made of simple shapes that moves to the melodic sound of a guitar, birds that flock together as a violin plays, and a frog hops to the sound of a clarinet. This video is designed for children ranging in age from babies six months old to toddlers and children up to age four. The critically acclaimed So Smart! series consistently wins awards such as Parenting Magazine's Best Video of the Year and the Film Advisory Board's Award of Excellence. ~ Steve Blackburn, All Movie Guide
