Little Pim disappointed me.

With this 3-DVD-pack, you get something that, I believe, could have been packed on only one.

The Box states it contains a "parent guide with helpful tips" : well, you'll find a sheet of paper with some obvious tips or remarks that I would hardly call "guide".

The Episodes inside are not too bad, if you accept the fact that it is all VERY simple : no background story, no introductory context. It directly begins with the animated panda, and then young children in close-up eating or drinking (dvd 1). (I'd think you'll first learn how to say "hello" for instance ?).
The scenes are nice, colorful, and the words clearly spoken (by one voice only), and it's true to say that toddlers and young children enjoy seeing children at the same age.

I really miss three things here:
- some event simple background story/plot line that
- lot more interactivity (questions + time to answer them)
- songs and rhymes !

Not a bad product, but given the price I paid, I expected more...

I got this DVD for my 4-year old granddaughter who is taking several languages. She already has Little Pim for Mandarin. Her father transferred both language DVDs to his iPod Touch and she uses them frequently when she has a few minutes in the car or other quiet times at home. This is a GREAT learning tool. I should mention that she does not watch TV; she plays with other toys and her Little Pim DVDs.

The cover of this product is misleading. I expected cartoon characters to take our toddler on this learning adventure. I also found the bold lettering in the center of each frame distracting. There is some usefulness in that my granddaughter hears someone other than her grandparents speak the language she is learning.

We are a bilangual household and this just what we were looking for to distract our 2 year old while feeding our newborn. It is simple and accurate. This isn't a program to teach your little one another language but rather to reinforce language skills that are already being taught.

I love this program. It is one of the few things on TV that keeps my 18 month entertained. It is best used in small segments. Even my 4,6, and 8 year olds watch it and are mesmorized. So glad we found this! Great start to the German language. Wunderbar!!!!

I am German and have bought the Pim DVD's for my 17-month old son who grows up quad-lingual (poor him...) German, English, French, Arabic. My wife speaks French with him and teta (grandma) Arabic. Contrary to the other reviews where somebody criticized the volume of the background music, I found this not a problem. The music is a bit annoying as is Pim's voice (too high pitched for my ears) but my son seems to enjoy watching them and there is a good mix of playful "cartoon" elements where Pim and his friends play around with "academic" elements where words are repeated in German. I will buy the remaining DVD's in this series and am happy with the purchase.
