Help Your Child Speak Igbo With Our Children's Cartoon

 

Are you a parent who is trying to help your young children speak Igbo? The Igbo Version of our children’s show can help you with that. As an Igbo speaking parent, especially one in the Diaspora, it is hard to find media for children in Igbo that can help your children speak Igbo. Most of what they watch is probably in English. The new Igbo version of the popular Bino & Fino children's show is made to help you with that problem. 

Here is a free episode. The download versions have English subtitles.

Reviews of The Igbo Version

"I love this! You touched gender stereotypes! Ah! Thanks! Girls can love football, too. Not all girls like egwu. "Onwere umu nwayi na gba ball". And it's in Igbo. Chaei! Unu dikwa ten much! Keep it up! Don't dare stop. Thanks, thanks. Parents will translate to their kids." -Cisi Eze

" I'm an Igbo that was never taught it by my parents and trying to get myself and my children to learn igbo. These type of cartoons with english subtitles would be a great help." - YAHS Charity

Our students love the Bino and Fino Show! It keeps their attention while teaching lessons and values. It provides teachers and parents with another resource for multicultural teaching. Our Learning Center uses Bino and Fino as a resource tool to promote multicultural education throughout the curriculum. The Bino and Fino show is a great way to introduce African culture and history to young children. We are proud supporters of the Bino and Fino Show!

As a parent and an African cultural educator, the importance of Bino and Fino cannot be overstated. Children in the African Diaspora have a limited selection of programming that positively and accurately reflect them. They don’t see themselves represented well in the general populace which could inadvertently send the message that they are not important enough. Bino and Fino changes that by putting a little boy and little girl front and center in their own adventures. The series also highlights the African culture and helps clear misconception of what “African life” looks like. We use Bino and Fino at the CAKE Village as part of our cultural programming resource and can’t wait for more upcoming episodes.
