Granted, the songs on this video are not my favorites. Many of them are nursery rhymes, such as "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep," or "classics" such as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," which don't really hold my interest. But my son enjoys them. In addition, the Count does a cute number called "These Old Bats" (instead of "This Old Man"), and the Oinker Sisters' rendition of "This Little Pig Goes to Market" is just wonderful.
My biggest complaint, and it's not much of one, is that the musical plot is really a numbers plot centering around counting backwards from ten to one. Obviously, my 18 month old isn't ready for that and it doesn't hold his interest at all. Had I realized this ahead of time, I might not have bought this particular video. But I consider this mainly my fault for not researching it properly (the reviews on Amazon, for example, make this plot very clear).
The audio is terrible. My wife, who knows nothing about sound systems, caught the problem in 2 seconds. It took me a minute longer to realize that it was the DVD and not the setup. (Other DVD's sounds great). I can't believe how badly they took a VHS and made it into a DVD.
This DVD is SHORT about 30 mins total including the ads! Rouhgly 15 mins running time! Ridiculous!
Furthermore, I expected Sesame Street classics like Ernie singing "Rubber Ducky", "Yellow Submarine" and so on. Instead we get the Sesame Street version of a few Nursery rhymes and BAD sesame street versions at that.
My One year old who normally stays glued once Sesame Street is on WALKED AWAY after a few minutes! My 6 year old complained that the songs were "not right. They are singing them wrong!" She said. She didn't like it.
This has been a MAJOR disappointment. Better off to by Barney..at least you get FULL time with menus and the children stay interested.
In this instance, the 1 star reviewers got it dead right! This was a total waste of money!
It's also very short... it's 30 minutes long, but the first half of the video are advertisements that you can't skip!! my son didn't like it and i have to agree with him... if you are looking for a good songs dvd, get kids favorite songs #2. It is much much much better and longer... another good one is strawberry shortcake...
i don't recommend this dvd to anyone..
My next problem is that the DVD is very old. The audio is chalky. The audio quality sounds as if they took an old video tape and digitally recorded it (as opposed to 'digitally remastered').
There is no menu and no chapters. You can't fast forward to the actual movie, you have to manually forward the movie. It's as if they took an old VHS tape and put in your DVD player. One would think that Sony could invest $20 in software to make the few adjustments necessary.
I think that this DVD is worthless. Do not be taken in by its low price. $1 is too much to pay.
