"This DVD was colorful and slow-moving. It was great for me, an adult who knows not-a-word in Chinese. My son, 3-years-old, could have used a faster pace. With English translation, it was a non-threatening way to learn four colors: red, green, blue and yellow; four animals: dog, cat, duck and rabbit; and a handful of useful phrases. New words were repeated often and clearly. And, for the adults, I loved the section at the end which gave the phonetic spelling for the Chinese words and phrases."

"Good introduction but my 8 year old was bored. The 9 month old was intrigued however. I enjoyed that the words were spelled out in close proximity to its use, and repeated. I know my colors in Mandarin Chinese now too!"
Better for very young ones

"This held my 2 1/2 year olds attention for all of one minute. Might be better for really little ones who are not talking yet?"
A wonderful series -- great for all families

"I love that this video series features children of all ages and many ethnicities -- so welcome in our bi-racial household. My kids love repeating after Bao Bei and friends. This DVD series makes my kids WANT to learn more Chinese and encourages my kids to use the vocabulary they learn here. We can't decide which DVD we like best in the series (you can watch them in any order), so our family recommends you get them all."
