Almost really good

"Uses a birthday party event to teach some basic words and phrases. The context is easy to understand. The simple songs help reinforce the learning. My 2 year old watches this and we will probably both learn some Spanish from it. I like that I have the option to just play the video and skip the exercises because my child isn't old enough for the exercises. My complaints are 1) sometimes the accompanying instrumental music is so loud that its hard to hear the words clearly. 2) It would help if they would put the Spanish text up on the screen (as well as the English, maybe English in smaller text). That would help when its hard to hear the pronunciation clearly. 3) The acting is awkward. I'm not sorry I bought it and will probably buy more in the series, but I do wish that the creators of these things would look at the product a little more closely before production because it wouldn't have been much more work to make it much much better."
Fun Learning Format

"There's a lot packed into this DVD. The DVD is split into 5 chapters with a specific learning theme. After each scene, the characters review what was taught and then follow up with a song or a DVD game. My kids enjoyed the games, the music and the kooky animated Chihuahua that jumps in with the human characters. In the past, I had a difficult time getting them to study Spanish with books and CDs but this DVD really had them interested in learning more."

"My 2 1/2 years old loves it - I think a little more than Professor parrot speaks Spanish. [I must also mention that she has several Spanish language tools like books, classroom style charts with English and Spanish numbers, colors, and shapes and and other DVD/CDs] We call the time we spend viewing this DVD our "Spanish Lesson" and I notice that when many of the words appear on the screen in Spanish she will shout it out before the narrator says it. I think that it is a good complement to the other tools that we use and I look forward to the other volumns."
Some good things to say, some not so good

"We own this DVD and Professor Parrot Speaks Spanish.
Here's the bad: I prefer Professor Parrot by far. This DVD is much cheesier. The guy who is the tree is annoying and does not know how to act. I agree with the other post that says the sound is of poor quality. I couldn't understand the words of the songs, so I had to pull out the booklet to read them. My son can't read yet, so he doesn't have the added benefit of reading the words.
Professor Parrot is much more stylistically interesting. The acting isn't so cheesy. And I love the warmth of the lady who tells the story of the Three Bears to the children. I would give this DVD a definite 5 stars.
Now for the good: My son does enjoy this Spanish for Kids DVD. He says he doesn't like the tree guy either, but he loves the dog. He thinks the dog is funny and he likes the balloons too. He was catching on to the colors because it's repetitive. He enjoyed the "test" questions at the end. He says he likes this DVD as much as Professor Parrot. So I guess from a kids point of view, cheesy and sound problems aren't a big deal if it's fun."
