Signing Time is one of our favorites - super entertaining and they quickly pick up on another language as well!

I can't stand Barney! I bought a Barney DVD for my daughter, but switched to Dora! She can watch 1 Dora dvd a day, if she's been good, so there is a lot of repeat. She knew colors, shapes and counting very quick. But the real reason is that I don't want her to watch tv, because if you look the other way, there are commercials and clips that aren't good for young children (where I live). So we never watch tv during the day, only when the kids are in bed.

Signing Time is fun. It's a little pricey, but the kids love it and a video or two will keep them quite engaged and teach them sign language.

We have the Baby Einstein "World Animal Adventure". I don't put a whole lot of stock into these types of movies (I kind of feel like it should be the parents who teach these things, not a video), but my son has already shown interest in animals so it was more to supplement his learning.

I read somewhere that tv before the age of 2 is really more for entertainment than education. It's not that they don't learn anything, but it takes them more time at this age to learn things that will take them no time at all a little later on. So if they are using up so much time to learn these things now, it is taking away from more important things like physical exercise, play, parent interaction. exploring their world etc. Having said that, I do let my almost 2 yr. old watch about 20 minutes of a video most days. It's usually something with music or this one series of DVD's (in all the parent magazines) that has letters, numbers, shapes, colors, etc. It gives her something to do while I clean up after lunch.

Super Why taught my daughter her lower case letters (she knew all her uppercase well before 18 months) and magically knew her lowercase one day even though I hadn't been teaching her those ones. She only watches one or two shows regularly (Super Why and Sesame Street) so I swear it was that Super Why show that did it, its great! Note: I do not usually let her watch more than half an hour of tv a day, we spend our time, playing, reading, crafts and at playgroups personally I think this is the better way to teach your kids rather than depending on a program. She's almost 2 1/2 now and is really getting into reading phonetically.

My son LOVES Little Einsteins. If you want your kid to learn stuff about music, those would be good dvds to get. Or Einstein Pals.

I love Signing time as well. not only does it helm my son learn American Sign Language he is able to use it in everyday life. Shortly after we stared the DVD's we found out one of his cousins is Deaf so its worked out best for the entire family. I loved the language so much I went on to take fromal classes myself to help my son and nephew grow even more. (My son will be 2 in June)

Sing and Sign baby signing is incredibly popular. I used Sesame street and Dr Seuss have a few that compliment their books nicely. Read along ones that encourage letter recognition too!

Blues Clues, Brainy Baby, Leapfrog, Dora, Go diego Go, Barney. Those are the few DVD's I gave my daughter starting when she was just 8 months old. =) She's 3 now and Ithink the videos really helped developing her skills.

my daughter does baby can read also and now we see Dora. a lot of the songs and words on BCR is on Dora so she sees the connection. she always points and says the word and or sentence when she sees something she knows.
