One of the best-especially for toddlers

"I had to get the new Baby Einstein DVD for my 19 month old daughter. She loves BE and I knew she would enjoy Baby's Favorite Places.
Her vocabulary has expanded because of how interactive these videos are for young toddlers and babies. She didn't just stare at the screen blankly. Instead, she was trying to imitate some of the signs for the words and laughed at the puppets.
If your child is familiar with BE, don't miss out on this DVD because it's one of their best. It's very much like Baby Wordsworth and has the signs to go with the words. I enjoyed seeing my daughter make connections with what she already knows such as looking outside for our fence as the word fence was introduced.
This video is interactive, fun, and is just right for the short attention span of a little one. I have a feeling this will be one of her favorites.
For Older Children?

"I have had the pleasure of teaching my hearing grandchildren to sign and I was looking forward to adding this video to our signing library. I was disappointed with both the format and the word selection. The format does not hold the attention of my grandchildren and the words are of marginal interest to them - market, bakery, florist, etc. My grandchildren are more interested in signs for words such as milk, eat, more, all done, mommy, daddy, baby, etc. Perhaps this video is more appropriate for older children?
My grandchildren have learned more than forty signs from the My Baby Can Talk videos - they are simply enchanted by these videos. Even my older grandchildren continue to watch these videos with their younger siblings and they all interact with the videos while they watch. I would recommend this series for preverbal babies and babies who are beginning to speak."
Not as good as other signing videos

"I've always loved Baby Einstein videos for my kids, so I was thrilled to find a BE signing vid. But this was pretty poorly considered. The words they teach baby to sign are ridiculous. What baby needs to know Salon, or Bank? Babies need useful signs for what's around them. Playground is a word they teach, but it's a complicated two-step sign that a kid would need to be two or older to accomplish. By then, the child would be able to say the word easier! If you're looking for a video to teach babies sign language I strongly recommend looking elsewhere.
Entertaining, but for older children

"I bought this video for a 2 year old who is high energy and slower in speech. I have heard of Baby Einstein, but have not tried it before. The puppets and music is entertaining and she learned some new vocabulary words. My 2 year old is almost 3 so this is more appropriate for her age, but not for younger babies. There are very good vocabulary videos for the almost 3 set like Four Baby Bumblebees and Brainy Yogis: Everyday Words which illustrate the meaning of the words a little clearer. I found getting the Baby Einstein flashcards and board book helpful, too."
