Review

The Little Pim series uses immersion and interaction techniques to create an engaging and fun-to-watch language learning experience. Pim, an animated panda, is the series' main character who begins each learning section. Each introductory animated skit is followed by live-action footage of children engaged in everyday activities. Pim narrates these sections, and the French vocabulary words are circled as they are spoken, with a graphic overlay of the word for emphasis. The concepts transition well, with later lessons building on previous ones. The focus is on the first words typically acquired by children (e.g., bed, fork, fruit, I'm tired, etc.). Each DVD teaches more than 60 new words and phrases arranged in five-minute episodes. The narration is clear, crisp, and easy-to-understand; the music is cheerful but not overpowering; and the visuals are colorful and vibrant. The parent guide contains general information on pandas and early language instruction. There are optional English subtitles. An entertaining introduction to very basic French vocabulary for preschoolers.

Julia Pimsleur Levine's Little Pim: Foreign Language and Fun language-immersion series follows the daily activities of the titular animated panda, presented here in French (with separate programs available in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese). Comprised of seven five-minute episodes focused on foods, drinks, utensils, etc., Eating and Drinking combines clips of Little Pim engaged in activities ranging from hand washing to making a tall sandwich, coupled with real-life segments of youngsters and family members cooking and eating together. Featuring onscreen circling of specific items, as well as instant repetition, the program also includes optional English subtitles for words and phrases. With a projected 12 titles in 12 different languages slated for release over the next 18 months, this initial volume in a new language introduction series for toddlers and preschoolers is a promising start. Recommended.

I like this video, as well as my 14 month old.
Michelle A. Adams
He was repeating words and pointing quite quickly, and wants to watch the DVD at least twice in one sitting.

He loves this DVD, and it's such fun to watch him speaking to the television and repeating the words.

I put on the Little Pim "Eating and Drinking" DVD for my twin four year-old girls and their friends who were over for a playdate - they were clamoring for Scooby Doo but I wanted them to try Little Pim. Once I hit play they all just watched so intently! They really loved it, especially when the panda got eaten by the sandwich! The animation is fun and it's nice to know that my kids are taking something valuable from the experience. One of my daughters now says "des oeufs" when she wants eggs! We are excited to get the other two Little Pim DVDs and wanted to thank you for this wonderful new educational video.

I am a professor of Spanish & French and was impressed with this video. Of course, more importantly, my 3 1/2 yr. old son likes it. This is a great way to learn for my son who thinks that I'm the only one who speaks French in his world--but also my husband for whom the written words are helpful. Each section provides the written words and the video progresses slowly enough for anyone to follow. It's a good pace. They should make more videos!

My two year old son immediately was attracted to the panda bear and the babies and children in this video. He was repeating words and pointing quite quickly, and wants to watch the DVD at least twice in one sitting. The subject of the DVD is a very important one (eating!) and one he could relate to easily. He loves the panda who giggles and does "cute" things like make a mess. As an aside, my child had zero interest in the Muzzy Italian for children.

My son is 2.5 and has taken a few Mandarin classes. He loves this DVD, and it's such fun to watch him speaking to the television and repeating the words. I don't speak any Chinese at all, and can hardly make out the words, but he has no problem at all. He's really actively involved rather than simply watching passively, and he loves the antics of the panda.

I'm a mom of a toddler so I don't have time to mince words. My two year old was very bored with this. I was disappointed that there were no live humans speaking the words just a narrated voice of Pim the panda. It's unfortunate that I haven't yet found any great italian dvd's for young children.

I don't speak Spanish myself, but I want my daughter (who is two) to learn it and I heard it's best if kids are exposed to a language when they are young. My sister in law gave me this Little Pim DVD and it is really fun to watch! My daughter is already repeating some the words like huevos and adios. I like the mix of real kids and cute animation and she seems fascinated by watching other kids at play. I try to use the words with her for extra practice. I am thinking of getting one of the other Little Pim DVDs (we have Eating and Drinking) too. Maybe my daughter will be teaching me Spanish one day!

my grandchildren will not even watch these videos. Poor animation, the words are said too quickly so you never really quite hear them or understand them. Not cohesive. I do not recommend.

This DVD holds my 6 month old and my attention. Even though she is too young to to talk, it encourages her to try and talk. Every now and then I hear her attempt a word or two. She is gaining an understanding of the languages. I can say spoon in spanish and she understands what I am talking about even though she cannot speak the word herself.
