My kids love watching the Hi-5 series more than Barney or any other cartoons.... and they are not the only ones who enjoy watching them, even I love watching them. They have learnt so much from these Australian educational VCDs. Whilst most educational VCDs are a tad boring and dry, Hi-5 is very entertaining and most kids I know of love them. Some of the things that Alycia and Sherilyn have learnt through these VCDs are phonics, body parts (not simple body parts but parts with scientific names that I don't even know!), cause and effect, musical instruments, colors, shapes, sounds that animals make, types of dance and much more. Of course, Alycia and Sherilyn's grammar and vocab have also improved.... and sometimes they even speak in Aussie slang. Sometimes, the three of us would dance together to the catchy music.
