Back in early November I introduced you to AILA – Animal Island Learning Adventure. If you didn’t get a chance to check it out you can do so HERE. Today I wanted to give you guys an update on how AILA has effected our family. Also there is a giveaway you are not going to want to miss, keep reading and you’ll find out how to enter.
The very beginning of November we introduced our son to AILA. As I mentioned previously, I’m not a huge fan of screentime, however, this is so much more than just screentime. Prior to getting AILA my son hadn’t started talking yet. Around the same time he also started speech therapy on Zoom. Speech therapy is pretty much trying to teach your toddler to sign. That has not been a hit with my son.
Within the month that we have had AILA, my son has learned most of his colors (yellow, green, blue, purple, black and pink) and can say them. There is no doubt in my mind that it is from watching the broadcast option on AILA. With Mr. Goose focusing on literacy and Mr. Pig creativity, my son has started talking. He can also say a couple numbers – just two and six as of now, but he’s off to a great start. I am beyond amazed at how far he has come. My son also loves doing anything artistic which we pair with what he happens to be learning on AILA for that day. For instance, if Mr. Goose is talking about the letter A, then we focus on coloring the letter A, or filling in an Apple with pom-poms.
Just to give you a little refresher, AILA Sit and Play is a comprehensive preschool learning system that can be done in your home in as little as 15 minutes a day! It is an electronic device, but not your average screen. There’s no swiping or even handling since AILA is free standing and can be placed at a distance from your child’s face. When you are doing each lesson, there is a definite beginning and ending – making it so much easier for your child to know they are done.
There are some amazing accessories that can be paired with AILA for the best overall experience in my opinion. I want to give you a quick overview of the accessories.
