"As the mother of twins, one hearing and one deaf, I have had the opportunity to check out many programs for teaching ASL to small children. This is by far the best series out there. Most other products are so boring that parents must struggle to stay awake during the production, and there is no way a toddler would tolerate a viewing. My 2-year-old twins request Signing Time all of the time. At home they want the DVDs playing almost constantly. In the car my hearing daughter starts asking for the Signing Time CD before I even have her strapped into her carseat. My 2-year-old deaf daughter is using 5-sign sentences, which is almost unheard of for the deaf child of hearing parents. My extended family owns a total of 6 sets of Signing Time. Whenever my daughters' cousins have a birthday they ask for the latest Signing Time DVDs. Children of all ages love this product."

"One of my friends recently introduced me and my son to the Signing Time videos. Her daughter is 14 months and knows over 100 signs from watching these videos for the past few months. My 18 month old hearing son and I both love these videos too! We've been signing a bit with him since he was 8 months with signs I'd learned long ago. He was quickly outgrowing the signs that we knew so we were looking for something more so we could all learn more. We tried a couple of other signing videos and they were OK, but the Signing Time and Baby Signing Time videos are captivating and fun, for him AND for me! They are well organized with a great, quick paced mix of humans, animation, singing, speaking and signing. I like how each song at the end of a segment is like a review for the words learned in that segment. This video - My Day - is as good as all of the other Signing Time videos I've watched. My son is fascinated with the daily things they do on the video anyway, especially brushing teeth and hair! My son usually picks up a few signs from each video the first time watching them, and it's been wonderful to be able to understand him when he wants something! I highly recommend these videos to everyone - they're the best I've seen!"
