Contains over 50 words including colors, numbers, favorite objects, action words and familiar phrases Introduced by a native-language (French) Narrator Fun music and a nursery rhyme song in French Includes a Vocabulary Review section DVD includes special features such as: Baby Bloopers, Behind The Scenes, Video Sing-Along and an Interactive Activity. 45 minutes
Studies show that children exposed to a second language during the first few years of life can more easily master the sounds of that language. Based on the concept of total language immersion, Brainy Baby: French is a commendable tool for those seeking bilingual enrichment for their youngsters. French is the sole language spoken through 45 minutes of instruction and live-action footage covering familiar objects, colors, numbers, and phrases. Words are repeated for reinforcement (and written on the screen for early readers), while classical music by Mozart and Vivaldi plays in the background. "chapters" selected from the DVD main menu allow wee ones to watch in small, digestible segments. Extra features include a French music video sing-along, interactive storybook, and hilarious baby bloopers. Such excellent, original offerings set this program apart from other bilingual language videos. The instruction is solid, the picture quality superb, and the interspersed frivolity reminds us that captivating kids is the ultimate goal of education.

At one point, the translation was ridiculous: for toes, they translated it to "les doigts des pieds" Really???? What happened to the correct translation which is 'orteilles'?
The content was over simplified and then suddenly broken off without warning. Half of the content was not on there. Please don't waste your money on this. If I didn't have to pay for return shipping charges, I would send it back. Very bad value.
The only comments i have are:
1- It is the same DVD as the english one (it has the same content), i could have run it from the previous DVD, using the Frensh language.
2- I wish to be able to scroll through the DVD to see the content of each chapters
3- My Son loves the extras that are provided in the menu
So as a conclusion I would say when Little Pim was not here, parents who do not speak (well) French could certainly show it to there kids, but now I would say without hesitation get LITTLE PIM first:Little Pim: 3-Disc Gift Set (French)
We are from Malaysia, therefore English and Malay are our first two languages, (which my son already understands and converses in pretty well for his age). I wanted to expose him to other languages, so that is why I bought the French and Spanish Brainy Baby titles. I have yet to start him on the Spanish title though.
It's a good introductory DVD, but I guess the only way you will get your children to be fluent in any language is to converse with them on a daily basis in the languages that you want them to be fluent in. So basically I would recommend this DVD to parents who would like to expose their little ones to French. I won't recommend it to parents who expect their little ones to be able to converse fluently in french by watching this dvd. For that they should hire a french tutor!
