My daughter is 12 months old and I play her the YBCR dvds and she likes them ok but she can get bored.   

Anyone have a 1 year old that really likes to the Tweedle Wink DVD lessons?  I viewed on of the lessons on YouTube and I found it stimulating to watch and I'm hoping it's even more captivating for my little one.

What do you all think of the Tweedle Wink DVD lessons in general (for any age baby/child) ?

My daughter loves them - she is 4 years old - she is doing currently a mix between TweedleWink and Wink.
I believe as kids get older they get more picky about their choices. I personally love this product. I believe it will help you.

Hopefully mom with younger kids can provide you with more info.

Good Luck

My 22 month old prefers YBCR.  He wouldn't watch them for a month straight, but we just watched them for about a week at a time and now I change them up everyday and he likes them. 

He is bored by the affirmations at the beginning of Tweedlewink because they are slow.  I've tried talking to him and sitting with him, but I have to fast forward to the first part and then he will watch it.  At the end, when they do poems I have to really try to get him to sit through that.  I like the content, and the lessons are short, but with YBCR I can put it in and check email or get ready.  I have to be hands on with Tweedlewink and part of us watching videos is to give me a minute (we only watch 1 per day and that is the only time the tv is on around him).

Yes, I think the affirmations would be more beneficial for a older child to hear.  Affirmations are 100x more effective though coming from the parents or caregiver no matter what age, as we all know.  But it's really nice that they put them in there.  It can't be said enough to young people.  I just think babies need fast stimuli if you want them to hang in there for the whole video.

My 16month old doesnt like them (Tweedlewink), hardly looks at the TV screen when they are on.  They dont have a play all button, so you have to use the remote control to go to the next lesson... I prefer to be able to go have a shower or wahs the dishes and have something I can leave running onscreen while I'm gone, not something that stops after a few minutes and then the potential learning time is wasted with the filler screen... no useful information occurs unless I come in and press play again. I like to think that even if she isnt watching she is still hearing useful information, words like golgi body, nucleolus etc...
I have never used Wink so cant comment on that.

Hi Gloria,

My son is also 4 1/2.  I would like to try TweedleWink and Wink too.  What is the differences between them?  I saw samples for TweedleWink, but I don't know what Wink looks like.  I know Wink is decided for older kids.  Is there any particular schedule to show TweedleWink (like Doman Math Flash Card)?  How long have you used those programs on your daughter and do you think if there is any benefit so far?  I am so sorry to ask lots of questions.  Because they are pretty pricey, I would love to hear any comments.

Thank you very much!   smile

Tweedle Wink does not work for my child. The background music is too loud and distracting, makes the main voice not clear enough to hear and focus. Plus the affirmation is not necessary at all.

I thought this produt were great so I bought the whole set of 9 DVDs, which cost me almost 300$, and I tried to contact RightBrainKids to return by email and phone, but no response. I feel this business is a bit tricky, just try to sell and don't let people have option to return it.

I'm very disappointed with the company's product and service

The affirmations actually are a good thing. They give your child the positive reinforcement he/she needs, and honestly, they only last a few seconds. And RBK has always been very good about returning people's emails. I have talked to Wennie many times, and I know others have also received a personal response from them. I think you need to email them back explaining that you are not satisfied. I have seen them write elsewhere on the forum that they will refund your money if you are not satisfied.

BTW, Tweedlewink is not Wink to Learn, where you initially posted. They are 2 different programs from 2 different companies.

I have exposed my daughter to Tweedlewink for more than a year and there were period of time she seems to be not interested , those were especially the times when either one of us not in relaxed state.And we have given a break of almost 4 months after we have finised the lessons and now we are again reviewing.And now she is still interested.
Then I got that we should be in calm mood and use it as a bonding time for us and during these sessions we make sure we sit close and start lessons.It is not kind of lesson where you can play and do your own work.
Also if your child has been exposed to all entertaining visuals like cartoons etc., they might not be int in tweedlewink,try to reduce the exposure to other entertaining visuals .
Tweedlewink is definitely a good program to us and affirmations are a + to us.
Do talk to RBK support on how to have effective lesson.You will not be disappointed.

I see my son not interested to watch sometimes when he has done so many within a day.
Sometimes he is the one requesting for me to play it. He has different moods everyday. So I just follow my child.

What I observed is that he doesn't want each lesson to be played repeatedly. After a particular lesson, he wants to go on to the next.

Thanks for the reviews, I was looking at this program and it looked good, but so expensive.
