"I rented this DVD from the public library hoping my 17 month old would enjoy it while learning some ABCs. When it came on, my child immediately turned away and asked to see Baby Einstein. She likes to see real children and people and objects beeing portrayed on-screen which is why I thought this would be good. The DVD starts with Sharon, Lois & Bram on-stage in colorful getups dancing and singing a superfast rendition of the ABC song that is NOT the traditional one we are all used to. They are in front of a studio audience of children and parents who are also dancing around. It then cuts away to various scenes that fail miserably at trying to present the letters of the alphabet. Most of the scenes don't even make any sense at all and fail at teaching the child what letter they are even talking about. I must say that I stopped the DVD half-way thru when it became crystal clear that my child was not going to sit thru it, and I could barely stand it myself. I am so glad I did not waste my money on this as it would have ended up in a garage sale or donation pile. I think i'll put the money toward another Baby Einstein DVD."
My 1 year old toddler twins loved this

"We also rented this from the library and had to rent it again and again until I ordered it. The songs are catchy and fun. I don't think they learned all the letters from this particular video but they did have fun and danced alot."
