"This dvd is very colorful and bright. The music is realy great and includes a lot of different music styles. The dvd is full of all kinds of pictures and video of things in nature such as butterflies, fish, fruit, waterfalls, sunsets, the beach, shells, etc. They cover a lot of things in 30 minutes like counting, the alphabet, matching, colors, sounds, and more. Because they cover so much, they don't spend a great deal of time on each thing. So, if you are looking for a dvd that teaches those specific things in more detail you might need something that covers it more thoroughly. But, this is a great way for your child to practice what they are learning.
When they count, a childs voice will say the number and then another younger childs voice will repeat it (they also do this with the alphabet). This gives your little one a chance to repeat the number and letter. Then they say, "That was fun. Lets do it again." The second time they count they say it in Spanish.
They have matching and memory games (my favorite). As an example, for the matching game they will show a picture of a bright yellow fish. Next to the fish are 6 different colored squares. They ask to match the color. It gives a few seconds for your child to point to the yellow square. Then the yellow square flashes. It's almost as if it flashes because your child touches it. For the memory game they will show you four items (such as 4 different kinds of fruit). Then they get covered up by neat looking baskets or boxes. They ask if you remember where the apple is, etc. The child can point to the basket with the apple under it. Another one of my favorite parts of the video is the fish. You might not think that fish can be pretty but they really were. There's lots of really pretty underwater video of fish in the ocean.
My daughter is 18 months and on the cover of the video it says for ages 2 to 5. I think she probably is a little young for a lot of this and the first time she watched it it didn't hold her attention too long. But I'll keep playing it for her and I know as she grows she is going to be more interested in it and she will love it, I am sure. While I watched it the first time she was playing in the same room and often got up to dance to the music.
Lots To Learn is sooooo much better then most of the Baby Einstein dvd's we've watched. In Lots To Learn Nature it is so colorful that it's almost breathtaking....a real feast for your eyes. The music is varied and there are also quite a few songs with kids singing. They also sell a music cd with lyrics that has all the songs and music from the dvd. This is great, too, and you'll find yourself singing and dancing right along. The exercise song is really cute. Also check out Lots To Learn In My House. I have more reviews for you to read."
This DVD is great!

"I just watched this DVD with my kids. I had heard about it online after reading reviews on the VHS version, and found the DVD to be better than anything out there I've seen.
It was educational, fun and entertaining, and we enjoyed watching it...together!
The kids loved all of the segments, and after watching it over and over, they are doing better with the alphabet, counting, colors, shapes, and we even have fun dancing and exercising together. Love the music.
You won't be disappointed."
Catchy video but has one mistake

"My 18-month old son loves this video. The scenes and music are entertaining. My major gripe is that it gives the wrong definition of a triangle. It states that a triangle "has three sides that are the same size." That's the definition of an equilateral triangle and not a general triangle. I am surprised that no one has caught this error."
