As I was born before the invention of the Internet, sourcing information on the goodies I wanted to fill my head with as a child meant bleeding every adult i knew of information or whiling away the hours at the library with my head stuck in books however for my children its simple enough to switch on a computer and reach every morsel of information they could ever require all in one place all the while still sporting yesterdays PJ's!
Now I'm no advocate for the Internet, its not the ideal place for children to be but for its wealth of knowledge I'm madly in love with it. the things I could of learnt as a child if I had had the Internet at my disposal. (insert evil laugh here)
My little two ones had so much fun in Sesame Street playing with all the Muppet's and not knowingly learning skills and it was a fun change of pace for them from books and the sort.
Our eldest enjoyed learning all about what Nat Geo wild has to offer, not only can you be a bear, yeah that's right BE A BEAR!!! who doesn't wanna be a bear?1 but she also learnt from first hand experience all about Grizzly Bears in Yellowstone Park and that's just the first episode.
They also expand as more and more episodes are released through xbox live allowing the fun to last and last.
I never thought I'd say this but Ive finally found a game aimed at children that is fun AND educational and surprisingly kinect actually works!
Now Wonderbook, you have a lot to live up to!!!
Until next time..
