Barney CD's are quite addictive. My son loves it each time he watches it. He loves it more each passing day. I brought 3 CD's and he watches them one after another. Barney at the beach is his favorite one. He loves to sing the songs along with Barney. Along with fun it is educative too. He has learned new words from the CD and I can hear him using those new words in conversation as well.
Barney books and CD's are colorful enough to grab the attention of children. I have tried to read books for him as I have the series of books at home. But he still seems to like the cd's more. Language used is simple and easy for children to learn.
The CD's are available for cheap rates from the flea market. I feel I did the best choice in choosing the CD's from flea market as children are very rough in handling these CD's. A cheap and a fun way to attract the attention of toddlers and to keep them occupied. Be careful to see that CD's do not turn to be too addictive.
