Good product for parents...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sign Babies ASL Flash Cards, Set One: First Words (Cards)
This is a great introduction for parents that don't know sign. I know a bit but my wife doesn't know any and these cards have been a good introduction for her and a good way to help her use the signs with our baby.
I can only give 4 stars, however, because the material the cards are made of is pretty flimsy...especially when the baby gets ahold of them. And since the purpose is for both the parents and the baby to see and use the cards, I can't understand why the cards don't come laminated.
Fortunately, I saw a suggestion online to get the cards laminated BEFORE showing them to the baby. I took the cards to Kinko's and got them laminated in about 10 minutes for less than $10. And then my wife and I had to cut the cards out ourselves. I would recommend you consider the cost and time of lamination for these cards if you plan to let your baby even look at them.

Another suggestion would be to get an inexpensive photo album and put one in each page - this would make a fun "book" for the baby too, and less apt to be eaten. :)

Or clear contact paper that you can get from Walmart and large chain hardware stores. It isn't as stiff as lamination, but its waterproof :) And it has many uses, I cover photos of distant relatives so the baby can play with them and their faces will be familiar. Sorry, a little off topic there :)

Note this review is from quite a few years ago. Based on this review, I went to Kinko's (now FedEx Office) to get these laminated. Not only was the price significantly higher (it was actually quite expensive I thought), but they could only laminate multiple cards at once in one big sheet, so I had to cut them all out afterward (resulting in non-uniform sizing).
I later found these pouches - they work great and are much cheaper (about $.70/card at time of writing) than paying for lamination. I recommend this as the best solution I've come across yet for laminating these.
