Product Description

ASIN: B0010YPT88 DESCRIPTION: Perhaps the sweetest sounds you'll ever hear are the babbles and coos that one day become ma-ma, da-da and I love you. Besides being music to your ears, these baby steps of language change everything as your little one discovers an exciting, powerful new way of relating to the world! Baby's First Sounds invites both of you to share these memorable moments: those precious ''firsts'' that come around once in your baby's lifetime. Watch, listen and join in as your baby is exposed to five basic sounds: ''ah,'' ''buh,'' ''duh,'' ''ee,'' and ''mm.'' Then, these sounds are connected to simple words in languages such as English, Spanish, Chinese and French and reinforced with fun puppet shows, familiar nursery rhymes and real-life images of loving parents spending together-time with their babies -- all accompanied by beautiful classical music in the Baby Einstein tradition. Not Rated. Available to own March 11, 2008 END

I couldn't wait to get this after reading the description. My son is just starting to talk and I thought the ba-ba-ball and other words they had in the description would be perfect to advance his communication skills. The dvd is nothing like the description. It spends way too much time on foreign languages and not enough time on baby's first sounds! Like the other reviewer said, your child won't learn anything from this...except sheer boredom! My son has no desire to watch it and he loves almost all the other Baby Einstein dvds. It really makes me wonder if they had a children's focus group watch this! Big disappointment to us, especially coming from Baby Einstein/Disney!

This DVD is my son's favorite. He's been watching it since he was about 6 months old, and he's now 16 months. This is digital board book, so the more that you watch it with your child, the more he/she will get out it.

What I like...
1. The quality of the DVD is wonderful. The animation and the pictures are vivid and colorful. It's extremely engaging for little ones.
2. The basic sounds are simple enough that my son can imitate them.
3. The puppets (especially the little lambs and the bumblebee) really help draw the child in. My son jumps for joy whenever the bumble bee comes on screen. (In the tradition of Baby Einstein, the bumble-bee is the host, so you'll see her often.) The little bee makes sounds like she is talking right to the baby. So, my little one talks right back.
4. There is a huge variety of animals (dogs, ducks, turtles, lambs, and hippos, just to name a few).
5. The music is excellent and very soothing. Its perfect for night time since it doesn't get him all worked up.
6. The beginning of the DVD has lots of little kids from all over the world saying "hello" in their various languages. My son waves to them all. Now that I've seen it a couple of times, I say hello back while he waves to the children. I don't speak any languages fluently, so it's a language lesson for me.

At the end of the DVD, you'll hear goodbye in multiple languages as well. I think its great to hear the different sounds that you'll never hear in English, and I firmly believe that when children are exposed to these sounds when they are young, they'll pick up languages faster later on. Having spent a lot of time with multi-lingual small children, I think that kids don't get as confused as we adults do.
7. It's a great intro to phonics.

We did not like the fact that they introduced several different languages, and it did not keep our baby's attention as other baby einstein DVDs. Although there may be studies that show babies can learn different languages if introduced early, that was not our intention when buying the DVD. It seems to me this just could cause confusion.

This DVD will not teach your child much. It has about 5-10 mins of each lang. listed on the dvd case. My daugther will watch the english part then she pays the rest no attention.

This is the only dvd of all the Baby Einstein DVDs I own, that my son will watch again and again. He has watched this from 3 months old and it still holds his attention at 19 months old. I remember thinking that I wished I had another one like it so that I could play something else he would like just as much. I purchased it after visiting my sister who owned this, and this allowed us a little time to do other things while my nephew and my son watched it over and over. I couldn't say that about any other dvd at that time. I think people who are confused by the many languages are confused, but I don't think the babies are confused at all. I normally don't even write reviews on products I have purchased as it is very time consuming, but felt the need because of the negative reviews. All babies are different. My other friend recommended the World Animals one, and my son couldn't care less about that one. Oh well, live and learn with your little one.

My sons LOVES LOVES the puppets and when they makes the 'sounds' in this video. He gets a big kick out of hearing the monkeys go 'E-e-e-e' for the 'E' sound, and the sheep going 'baa' for the 'B' sounds. He giggles throughout this video.

My pet peeves with it though
- My son has learned NO sounds by watching this video, even with me trying to reinforce the sounds.
- Mix of languages. Spanish, French, English and I think Mandarin (not sure though).
- The stories are cute, but after watching this DVD atleast 40 times, I still don't understand what is being said (as the stories are in French, Spanish, etc) except knowing the story is either Little Miss Muffet, Little Bo Peep...

Don't expect you child to pick up on any words from watching this. The puppets and the sounds are absolutely cute though. My son has picked up words like 'Hi' and 'Cat' from us actually READING a book to him and pointing at the pictures.

I'm surprised at some of the negative reviews! Our baby enjoys this video very much. Hes just turning 7 months and he will sit up in bed and watch intently, smiling when the Bee comes on and other familiar scenes. He loves the "Bah- Bah -Bahhhh" sheep and when I sing "Do Rae Me" along with the flowers. I learned how to say hello and goodbye in several languages myself! It has lots of colors, shapes and sounds I think its a good beginning video but I guess people who hated the video expected their baby to become an overnight genius or something. From our experience,its colorful and engaging and perfect for a new baby.
