This is a very good follow up to the original Baby Babble. The first one was very helpful for our speech-delayed two year old. We like it so much that we pre-ordered this one from Amazon when it first came out.

The DVD has 4 sections.
1. The main video which focus on objects/words with P, B, M sounds. All of which are introduced and sounded out through pretend play, toys in action, etc. It makes the DVD more "interactive" than just watching flashcard style presentation. After several viewing, our son started to repeat the words and also do pretend play with his toys.

Also, interjected between the video clips of toys and pretend play are the two speech pathologists showing how to make "P", "B" and "M" sounds with their mouth. These two ladies have gotten an updated hairstyle and a lot less "stiff"/serious than the original video. This is a great improvement second times around.

It also introduce some basic concepts like colors (Purple, Blue, etc.) and counting (1, 2, 3).

Overall, the video is about 30 minutes.

2. The main video is follow by a parents guidance section which the two speech pathologist describe methods that parents can use at home to encourage their child to practice P, B, M sounds at home like blowing bubbles or on the cotton ball. There are some excellent advice here.

3. The third section shows the two speech pathologist using sign language and sound out some main objects/concepts (Thank you, please, more, music, etc.) show in the video. This is a good section reinforce the main video. The sign language section might be more helpful for younger toddlers/babies who may not be able to sound out the words.

4. Finally, it shows all the toys and their manufacturer featured in the main video. We have found a few toys we like from this video and have subsequently purchased it for our son.

Overall, I highly recommend both Baby Babble 1 and 2 to parents who wants to share more educational videos with their kids during TV time. This is especially helpful for parents with children who may be speech-delayed.

My little boy is turning 3, and around the time he was 2 years and 2 months old, his doctor was saying that he wasn't talking enough and should be checked out by a speech therapist. I was angry, because you don't want the medical community telling you there is something wrong with your child when there is nothing there, and because I didn't know what to do. I hate these "how to" parent books, but wanted some techniques that might help him want to talk. I saw Baby Babble 1 and 2 reviews here on Amazon and ordered both. My son really got into them immediately and started asking for ba-ey ba-el. He would make all the noises along with the therapist when he watched and dance around and smile during the program. He just really loved it! His speech since then has come along way. We have employed the use of flash cards with phonics and I work on getting him to make the faces I make to help him pronounce things. Most 3 year olds talk more than he does, but don't exhibit some of the other qualities he does in terms of writing, how quickly he picks up things, patience and other skills that are advanced. Baby Babble 1 and 2 were great first steps in helping him to talk and I am greatful for them.

Note:
We originally purchased Your Baby Can Read before Baby Babble and he didn't get into it at all, so we sent it back. But now, he has seen the Your Baby Can Read commercial on a tv program we recorded for him and always points to and now gives the impression that he wants to watch it. I would recommend for parents who are experiencing a speech delay to start with Baby Babble 1 and 2, Brainy Baby English and then after 8 months of those DVD's and other techniques (reading daily, flash cards, singing the alphabet and songs- all things I did with my child to help him along), when your child hits that mimicking phase and you are seeing a steady growth, consider the Your Baby Can Read set. We have not re-purchased it yet, but it seems like now he's ready when he wasn't before.

My son struggled with speech when he was 2. yes i was concerned at 2 because he wasnt saying anything other than "go". As i later discovered it was only temporary and my son now talks like an adult, he is 4 now. however i still wanted to purchase these videos to get him to talk and they helped a lot! he could make sounds the p and the bs ...he was also showing keen interest in movement of lips as they made sounds in the video... loved it a lot.
however my one piece of advice to anyone concerned about speech is please do not get all stirred up if ur child is not talking at 2...thats just the way some kids are...my second child started talking at 2.5 and i was absolutely okay with that because i had seen how his brother talked after 2. Read a lot, talk to them a lot and they shud be fine:)

I just have to say that both of these videos are a hit with my boys. I have a nearly 5 year old son that has Autism and Apraxia. I got the first video when he was less than a year old. It used to be the only thing that calmed him down when he started to tantrum or melt down. I used to be amazed by the calming affect it had on him. Besides the fact that these videos are very addicting to young children, they are also great for helping with speech. My son is articulating his P, B, M words so much better now that he's been watching the 2nd video...they really do learn from these. Not to mention, my nearly 3 year old neurotypical son is just as addicted as his older brother. I love watching the two of them interact with each other as they are watching these videos. I especially love that there are a couple of popular characters in the 2nd video...particularly Thomas and Elmo. My boys get soooo excited when they see the Thomas toy as they are both addicted to Thomas. I like the sign language portion of the videos too and both boys enjoy it. My autistic son even likes to watch the parent tutorials. I think he is just soothed by the music and Amy and Corey's voices. Anyway, if you are considering this...just go ahead and buy it. You won't be sorry you did.

My son worked with a speech therapist for 6 months before we got this dvd. Within 3 weeks of watching it, his vocabulary has doubled. I could not recommend this highly enough.

My son was tongue tied at birth. Despite our best efforts his doctor would not provide us with a referral to an ears, nose, and throat Doc.I finally INSISTED at age 3. As a result our son was speech delayed. I'm convinced he made up his own language. When I got the baby babble movies I wasn't expecting a miracle, just something to help my son learn to talk. We were able to pull some sign language from the movies that helped us communicate. Primarily we used the words "eat" "more" "potty" "please" and "help." to get us by until he started to use real words. Yes, speech therapists should encourage talking to your child, however these videos are able to model activities to do with your child to encourage their speech development. I always watched it with him and repeated what they said, and he imitated them too. He still wasn't able to talk until his tongue was clipped, however these movies helped him focus on speaking - one word at a time.

Overall great movies to use if you are as frustrated with your child's speech delay as I was!

So Excellent, Better then Baby Babble 1...
One of my sons is a super talker, but his twin brother is a LATE talker. ( They are 35 months old)
All late talker's parents want to know..."did this get your child to talk?" We have had this for a week & have watched it every day & my late talker feels very comfortable trying to imitate these ladies, he is much more comfortable imitating them then anyone else on TV or in our house!!! Including Dora, Barney...Mommy (me), Daddy or brother.
This video is helping the late talker soooo much while keeping the Super talker totally engaged & entertained!
The two Speech developement experts in this video are just that... EXPERTS!!!
I am on line ordering Baby Babble 3 right now.

My son is 2.5 yrs old and Has a speech delay. He's been watching the baby babble 1 DVD and loves it. I'd say he's learnt a lot of it. I wish I knew about baby babble sooner. The videos arnt long which is great bcuz it keeps his attention. My son had been watching baby einstein videos since 6 months and learnt nothing! And right after watching baby babble he stating mimicking and copying the video . After a few time of watching he started saying the sounds and words. It's a great video I highly recommend them. I suggest watching baby babble 1 first and not go to baby babble 2 until your child is really ready.

It really is amazing how this is the only show that completely captivates my baby. I can have any number of other shows on and trust me we own them all, yet I put this on and he crawls over to the tv and starts babbling back at it. Baby Einstein is good but this is just a little better. The speech therapist girls do a great job and both my babies love them!

My son is autistic with delayed speech and he LOVES Baby Babble!! We now alternate between the original Baby Babble and Baby Babble 2, and he wants to watch them over and over. I hear him frequently repeating the sounds and words he hears, and that is really good for his speech. Great DVD!!
