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. 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. --School Library Journal

My two-year-old son got the triple-DVD set for Christmas, and has already watched all of them. I am a native speaker of Russian, have a degree in English and linguistics. Overall, I would recommend this product to parents who want to introduce (emphasis on "introduce", not "teach") their children to a foreign language and have extra cash to spend. First, the "pluses":

- enjoyable video sequences that (in my son's case) seem to be able to hold a young toddler's attention
- a cute little Panda animated character helps to "navigate" through vocabulary
- some reinforcement techniques (words and phrases are repeated in (slightly) different situations
- English subtitles (selectable from main menu) for parents
- Onscreen transliteration text helps with pronunciation

Now the minuses:

- DVD menu does not have selections for individual video segments, thus you're forced to cycle through using the forward button if you want to find a particular video segment (there are about 10 segments for each DVD)
- Transliteration text is not very consistent and in some cases -- wrong
- No actual Russian text. That would be very helpful to parents who can speak the language and to kids who are bi-lingual and learning to read.
