Movie Reviews

Impressive DVD for Toddlers/Preschoolers
Just Angela | Indiana | 03/18/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this DVD for my 2 and 3 year old boys and was very impressed. It's not flashy and polished, but it effectively teaches the basics (shapes, colors, large and small, letters etc.) My boys were not only watching, but also interacting. We just received it today and I'm looking forward to playing it for them once a day."
A wonderful way to learn through entertainment
wendybean | Denver, CO | 09/17/2004

"I watched this DVD with my two sons, ages 4 years and 6 mos. My younger son was entertained by the Starlets and I even caught him laughing when something on the screen delighted him. (Incidentally, I've tried a Baby Einstein or two with both my babies and they never seemed to enjoy them. So I was so pleasantly surprised to see the positive reaction with Fundamentals.) My 4 year old son was equally entranced with the DVD and watched it 3x in one sitting. He is working at preschool on putting concepts together (two red cars, three blue carts, etc.) and having that reiterated was very interesting to him.

I think that this is a terrific DVD for kiddos to learn in so many ways. The sing-song repetition and the friendly narrator are inviting as well so the kids stick with it and inevitably learn through this unique method. I highly recommend this DVD to help children understand more about this wonderful world of ours."
Fantastic and entrancing educational video
BND, NYC NY | 05/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video was fantastic. My son who is 3 1/2 years old loves it and has learned so much information from it. The sophisticated use of vocabulary is brilliant. I am so happy to find something out there that gives a toddler and infant the credit for being able to understand and express themselves in an elegant and ambitious way. It is wonderous when a child discovers a whole new language.

This video was especially good for my son who had some hearing issues and the woman speaking and enunciating in the corner (Melissa) was invaluable to him and to his understanding of the material. Children have different learing styles and respond to a variety of techniques, I believe that this video catered perfectly to both the oral and visual approaches in learning.

My child asks for me to play it again and again. Thank you so much for creating an insightful, creative, stimulating and fun video for him to watch."
A helpful tool for speech and a fun way to learn
Monica Lopez | Queens, NY | 04/18/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I credit Fundamentals for helping my daughter's speech problem. She was almost 2 years old and she did not talk that much. Thanks to the video, which she liked since the first time she watched it, her ability to talk increased very quickly. She started to say more words and also to recognize shapes, colors, letters, and numbers.

Since I found the video very helpful, I gave one to my sister as a gift for my nephew. She first showed it to him when he was 1 1/2 months. He loved it. At first he watched for five minutes at a time. She played the video for him every day, and three months later he could watch it all. This is the only video that he can watch from start to finish without getting tired, and it is her son's favorite video. My nephew also likes the narrator, smiles at her, and tries to talk to her and repeat what she says. My sister said it is really helpful for her too, because while he watches the video she is able to cook and take a shower.

We are anxiously awaiting the next video.
