“Meet Rollie Roundman, Trollie Triangle, and Rockford Rectangle as they teach you all about colors, specifically mixing primary colors to form new colors. Then, learn about how new shapes can be formed from standard shapes. Lastly, you will count shapes as you keep memorizing new songs and stomping your feet to the beat of the music.
“Their catchy songs make learning fun. The video features lots of great visuals to show colors, shapes and numbers. Rock 'N Learn has won more than 150 awards and easily earns the Dove Seal Family Approved for easy learning.” – Dove “Family-Approved”
"Colors, Shapes & Counting Video – Narrated by three geometric dudes named Rollie Roundman, Trollie Triangle, and Rockford Rectangle, this fast-paced program works on many levels and will be enjoyed by younger children. Its structure is good, starting out with the basics (such as counting to five, or presenting the concept of a circle) and then moving to more advanced territory (counting to 20, and examining pentagons). The best segments deal with counting and shapes. The sound is clear throughout, and the lyrics are fun and informative." – School Library Journal
"Colors, Shapes & Counting Video – Utilizing music, songs and a creative use of computerized graphics, here is a video that young children will enjoy while learning. Well-paced and thoughtfully presented, children will learn simple but basic colors, shapes and numbers. Even some of our toddler testers were captivated by the bright colors and shapes on the screen. Children watched it again and again." – National Parenting Center Seal of Approval
“My daughter LOVES it! As my official 2 1/2 year old product tester, she can attest that she loves her ‘Colors Movie,’ referring to the Colors, Shapes and Counting DVD. I spent many years as an elementary school teacher convincing parents and students that sitting on the couch watching TV was not the ideal way to spend the afternoon. However, in times when necessary (rainy days, quiet times, sick days…) the right programming can make all the difference. I have a number of shows and movies that I STRONGLY believe are of tremendous advantage for children. One of these is Colors, Shapes and Counting DVD. The video, in a very animated fashion, invites the viewer to sing, to learn the colors, shapes and numbers. Why is it a Smarty Pants Product of The Week? Let's just say that my munchkin is still singing …. ‘Red and Yellow mixed together make the color orange!’ – a verse in track 11 of the DVD, and running around telling me every shape and color she can find in the house - track 7's ‘What color is it?’! Can't argue with that!” - Smartypantsmama.com
"My son Elijah loves Rock 'N Learn! He's learning different colors and shapes and has strong knowledge from watching this movie. Thank you for making this DVD. He's learning more on a daily basis." – Chevae B.
