Like watching in fast forward mode

"I purchased this for my 15 month old daughter who has been really enthusiastically watching and learning Baby Babble and My Baby Can Talk dvds from age 7 months. From the positive reviews I expected this to be very good. If you like a much faster pace with loads of content, this is for you. My daughter lost interest very quickly. I managed to watch the entire dvd and throughout felt quite nauseas from watching the quick changing scenes. The effects of repeatedly "flipping pages" was in my opinion, the cause. To me, this production is like reading a book (without breathing) filled with pages of continuous black text, with little or no thought for layout. I would not recommend this to my friends but will recommend the SIGNING TIME series. It's content may not be as full as the Baby See N Sign but it is definitely a more effective way of teaching making learning easy and fun. Also, the technique, production quality, songs and relevance cannot be beaten."

"I got this for our 5-month old, who is now 17 months old. In the beginning, I left it on as background noise. One day, my son said "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaapple." He definitely picked that up from is dvd. He knew how to identify many objects because of the dvd. We have volume 1 too and at 17-months old, he's mastered 90% of the signs in vol. 1 and about 50% of the signs in vol. 2. He selects what he likes to identify and learns the signs and words. In our case, signing definitely helped him start speaking early rather than delaying his speech development."
