My 6yr old son still will watch this one, and picks it himself to watch when our youngest (1 yr) has her 1/2 hour of screen time (so Mommy can get dinner made).
Our video (we may be buying the DVD sometime, but I hate having to wait for it to load and go to the menu screen and all that) has perfectly good quality audio/sound and is my favorite video of all time because I can keep the volume on the quiet side. If the baby wakes too early and wants her morning to start already (4,5am!) I can pop this in and it lulls ME right back to sleep, while she gets a bit of something interesting to watch. She sits still to watch it while we cuddle on the couch and sometimes has drifted back off to sleep herself (hooray!). It's just lovely, like being read a bedtime story. This has been the same scenario with all four of my kids. One of my most dependable 'tools' as a parent.
The only video I found engaging for my little one so far was Baby Signs. The puppet in that video seems to have personality and the vignettes have a touch of humor. In all the other videos, the extremely literal, simplistic approach lacks imagination.
I appreciate the spirit in which these videos are created and have used the "index" to find the real scores of music; and in this case, the actual poems, which do offer quite a bit of inspiration.
I played this for my 9 month old, and after about 3 mins, he started fussing and squirming and wanted to do something else. He was not into the talking and the puppets, but the music with moving images seemed to spark him a bit...it's a very cute video, but not for younger babies, I would wait till at least one year old to introduce this one to your little one.
