Editorial Reviews

DESCRIPTION:From the moment babies are born, they use their developing senses to discover the world. In terms of sight, bold patterns in contrasting colors or black and white are initially preferred. As for sounds, Mother s gentle voice, in any language, is music to baby's ears. Language Nursery: Voices From Many Lands acquaints your baby with the sounds of foreign language by presenting delightful, visually stimulating images accompanied by spoken passages, natural sounds and music -- including nursery rhymes sung by mothers in their native languages of English, French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Russian and Spanish. It's a rich, multicultural experience you and your baby can share as you watch, listen and play together! END

Format: DVD
My complaints are mostly wrapped around the "concert Hall" index. There are 24 songs on the DVD in a variety of languages. It is great except there are no visuals associated with the songs. The same with the alphabet and counting section. there is merely a voice reciting the alphabet and numbers in 7 different languages. You would think that the letters and numbers would flash on the screen in different colors or something. Needless to say, my little one doesn't pay any attention to the video. She is one who "watches" TV all the time, so we bought this to make her TV viewing more developmentally appropriate and educational.
The home theater section is just like others have commented, a stream of sing-song like speaking. there are visuals associated that sometimes don't match up. It is tough to follow because the languages are all mixed up in order and there are no cues to tell you what language it is.
The only section that I like on this video is the language lab index (a very short segment of the DVD). There are vocabulary words stated with pictures that flash on the screen. there are separate lessons for the seven languages (this time you choose the language). This is more developmentally appropriate, but be aware, they also sell Baby Einstein cards to go with the video. Had I known, I would have just bought the cards and did the same thing myself.
Regarding the navigation of the DVD, it is awful. There is a caveat in the parents guide that states it varies by DVD player. However, the menus are compartmentalized, so there is no way to get back to a "main menu" without stopping the DVD and starting again. Strange.
I am not giving up on the Baby Einstein videos. I have heard great things about the Bach, Mozart, and Neptune. I will definitely read the reviews first and possibly rent from the library next time.

I agree with a previous reviewer who stated that the negative reviews of this DVD are from parents/caregivers who are evaluating it on their own enjoyment and/or understanding of it. Of course it's going to be boring or confusing to an adult or even to an older baby. The point of the Language Nursery video ISN'T to teach an infant how to speak the languages that are used on's just supposed to expose them to the different sounds being spoken. The concept here is the same as when you read your child a book or play a DVD for them in English - exposure to the different sounds used to communicate = stimulation/development. That said, I don't think any of the Baby Einstein DVDs actually encourage development at all. That's why the AAP recommends no TV viewing till they're at least 2. These DVDs are nothing but a quick distraction for when you have to have 2 hands to fold laundry or mix their cereal up. Period. This is my daughter's favorite B.E. title, we have a few others. The gentle pictures and music are something she is absolutely glued to the entire time. And that allows me to get something else done for 20 minutes. If you're looking for this DVD to accomplish something else, you're going to be disappointed. I haven't seen one baby yet who is at least 1 month old who doesn't like this one, and hopefully that's endorsement enough. We're at 6 months and she still loves it.

Format: DVD
I purchased this DVD for my 2 year old great niece. Boooring! I gave it a 2 star for the visuals. The DVD is divided into 2 main learning parts.

1. Play-involves using different colorful moving toys, colorful shapes, and other objects to engage the child in some form of visual play while the speaker counts, sings, or tells a short story in a specific language. The problem with this part is that the languages change back and forth. One minute it's French, the next its something else. You can't select the language of your choice, here! It just bounces around, back and forth!!! It's totally disorganized! I got confused!

2.There is a section called Bonus material. In this area, you can select a specific language and here it teaches the child to count to twenty, names of a few fruits i.e apple, banana, grapes, animals... cow, duck, goat, and other items (clock,train). The bonus area is very brief. Not much of a bonus.

Then the DVD has an area where it offers you an opportunity to purchase some of the items used in the program ( some of the toys); most have been discontinued.

Also, some areas in the program play the music so loud that it's difficult to hear the lesson. The program offers French, English, Spanish, Hebrew, Italian,Russian, Japanese, and German.The program is 30 minutes long;this includes the introduction and the sales pitch at the end. For $16.00, this is not much of a value. BEWARE!! There is a note on the back of the case, on the bottom, that warns that "all players may not be able to access all features". This makes it even less of a value!

Mine is going in the trash!!!

This program is directed towards ages 0-3 years.

Format: DVD
This movie makes no sense! The narrator reads numbers to twenty yet the syncronized clock only goes to 12. This is just one example of how there is no correlation between what the narrator says and the images that are displayed. The poems in the various language are boring. The movie is confusing. A better approach would have been to show simple objects and repeat simple words in various languages. Instead, the movie includes LONG passages in foreign languages without saying what language is what and without showing visuals to help the listener understand what is going on. Quite honestly, this is the worst baby einstein video I've seen.
