"When we received this video in the mail, my 3-year-old son, who loves videos, couldn't wait for me to get it out of the wrapper and into the VCR. He didn't even know what the video was, but he sure wasn't disappointed. The first day we received this video, we watched it twice. And we only watched it twice because we ran out of time! The following day he took the video with him to the babysitters house and he, along with 5 other children, ages ranging from 14 months to 6 years, all loved this video. They danced and sang and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It is a perfect children's video, made just for children. A wonderful addition to any child's video collection."
Fun tape for the young animal lover

"This is an enjoyable video for young kids. It contains some original songs and some classics (Old McDonalds's Farm, BINGO, etc). All of the songs are done in an upbeat tempo and they hold our two year old ` s attention. This is one of her favorite videos. The video portion is well done and shows both wild and domestic animals. Many of the shots show children interacting with animals. In addition to being fun, this video is a good way to help children identify many kinds of animals. As different animals are shown, we like to say the name so that our daughter can start to connect the name with the animal. Although our daughter is probably still too young to pick up on it, the tapes also have a positive message about animals and nature.The tape comes in a durable plastic case (no the cheap cardboard cover that some come in). Our daughter likes to bring us tapes to show us which ones she wants to watch - and thet get dropped a lot. The case protects the tape from getting broken. I wish that more children's tapes were packaged like this."
Wonderful, everyone loves this video!!!

"I own this, and several other Baby Songs videos(Baby Songs, More Baby Songs, Silly Baby Songs), and this is by far the favorite in my house. My son is 3, and my daughter is 1. They get so excited when they hear the opening song, and they know that Baby Songs is coming on. I would recommend this video to everyone!! I can't understand why somone wouldn't like this video, even other children that have come to my house (children that I might babysit or my neices and nephews) all love this video. Singing old MacDonald, and seeing all the animals, B-I-N-G-O.... they love it! Maybe I'm a goof ball, but even I love to sing along."
My kids love it!

"We love baby songs at our house. I have a three year old and a one year old and Hap Palmer's songs never fail to put a smile on their faces. I was first introduced to Baby Songs as a teenage babysitter in the early 90's. The toddler for which I babysat had 2 Baby Songs videos which he loved to watch. I found that songs like Today I Took My Diapers Off and Sitting In My Highchair would be running through my head for days. Years later, after having a child of my own, I was delighted to discover that many of those same catchy tunes that I remembered from my babysitting days had been compiled in DVD format. We started by renting at the library and then purchased our own copies of Original Baby Songs, Baby's Busy Day, Baby Songs ABC, as well as this Baby Songs Animals video. I prefer Original Baby Songs and Baby's Busy Day to the other two we own, but in all fairness, my kids seem to adore all four equally. Yes, the songs are a bit corny and the hairstyles and clothes are a bit outdated (which I find endearing in a nostalgic sort of way), but your baby, toddler, or pre-schooler is sure to adore it. Isn't that what really matters? Be aware that this video contains only 9 songs, excluding the Baby Songs theme, which runs at the beginning and end of each Baby Songs DVD. This is roughly half the number of songs on the other Baby Songs DVDs we own. Our copy has been mislabled as having a running time of 45 min. I timed from the start of the Baby Songs theme to the end credits and it was actually only 25 minutes long. I don't mind this since I think this is a very appropriate length for a DVD designed for the pre-school set, but you definitely get less Baby Songs for your buck with this one. The songs are all very Baby Songsish, sweet and corny, wholesome and fun. Our personal favorite is "Amazing". Each verse of this song names a bunch of different animals and flashes a picture of each animal as it is named. My kids looooove the real animal footage and I do too since it is something like a trip to the zoo minus the slimy sunscreen and overpriced snacks. My only criticism of this song is that when they name chickadee they flash a picture of a fuzzy, yellow chick, when in reality a chickadee is a bird that looks more like a fat sparrow than a baby chicken. Still, we can't get enough Baby Songs and I would buy this DVD again in a heartbeat."
