Ni Hao, Kai-lan: Kai-lan’s Great Trip to China Review

Ni Hao, Kai-lan: Kai-lan's Great Trip to China is a fun, educational video. To be honest I had never heard of Ni Hao, Kai-lan prior to this review opportunity and I was very curious about it. I really enjoyed watching Kai-lan's Great Trip to China with Brea and I am looking forward to watching this show on Nick JR.

Ni Hao, Kai-lan: Kai-lan's Great Trip to China introduces young children to the chinese culture and mandarin chinese language. While doing this Kai-lan also manages to includes helping children learn ways to handle different emotions. This DVD includes three episodes all of which include great adventures and music to keep your child's attention while teaching them valuable lessons!

Our Opinion of Ni Hao, Kai-lan: Kai-lan's Great Trip to China . . .

I love that Ni Hao, Kai-lan helps Brea learn chinese. I have read quite a bit of information that says that young children are more susceptible to learning foreign languages than adults. I love that even though Brea is watching a cartoon that she enjoys she is also being taught something that I am incapable of teaching. Even better I get to learn a little myself!

Brea seems to really enjoy Kai-lan. It captures her attention and she even points out different characters and animals that she sees in the show. She is 22 months old now so I will be interested to see how long it takes her to pick up a few chinese words from the movie. (Guess that means I had better pay attention or I will be the one at a loss!)

I know this may have been interesting to me when I was a kid.

I wouldn't mind learning some Chinese.
