Editorial Reviews
This total immersion approach to language means that no English is spoken on this video, and only the occasional sentence is translated onscreen. Instead, viewers are treated to five sections of objects, concepts, or actions while a woman identifies them in Spanish. The first section shows a boy (niño), various people, and animals eating (comer) and an apple (manzana) and then puts it all together (El niño come la manzana!). The same method is used for numbers, colors, manners, and phrases and then another section of familiar words and phrases. The 40-minute video comes with an introduction and the lessons spelled out in a fold-out cardboard display attached to the video box. This is a serious effort meant to teach children a second language while they are still quite young. But that won't stop children from enjoying the brightly colored video of animals, toys, and a multiracial cast of kids. Ages 1-5. --Kimberly Heinrichs

5 out of 5 stars Simple and worth buying.....My daughter loves it.!!!!!, December 20, 2004

Reviewer:   Wanda (New Jersey) 

My 10-month-old daughter absolutely loves this video and so do I. I bought it for her when she was 8 months and she loves it even more now. She sits there and watches attentively. Funny part is that my daughter goes buserk with excitement during certain phrase or images in the video. When the video is over, she'll make a moaning sound until we re-play it and surprisingly she'll sit through the entire thing.... again!!!! It's very simple for children and it uses images and repetition to re-enforce the words. I am a native speaker and love the fact that the narrator uses a Spanish accent. I've heard and seen samples of other videos and audio and was disappointed to hear an English accent. I think it's important for children to learn to speak Spanish with the correct accent and not sound like someone speaking broken Spanish. Other reviews criticize the quality of the video, but I thought it was pretty good. All and all...buy it; it's worth it.

5 out of 5 stars Toddler, Mom + Dad All learning Spanish, May 26, 2004

Reviewer:   Robert S. Atkins (lancaster, pa) 

We purchased this video based on other Amazon evaluations. We are so happy we purchased this video. We wish it was on DVD, but it's not available that way. Even still, it's no big deal to fast forward past the very brief intro (no commercials for other videos, YEA).

We got this for my son when he was 8 mo. old (now 18 mo). He loves Bilingual Baby - Spanish even over the Einstein Videos - of which we have like 10! He happily watches it without getting distracted.

Additionally, I think this video quickened his learning of the concepts of yes and no.

It's so easy to watch. My husband and I have learned - especially the pronounciation. The video focus is on phrazes and words babies and toddlers use most, making it practical too!

As a Mom (and the primary cargiver) I find none of it offencive. Which is saying a lot for this neurotic Mom!

5 out of 5 stars Bilingual Baby is the BEST!!!, March 26, 2004

Reviewer:   Cynthia (San Diego, CA) 

I love this video!! But more importantly, my daughter loves this video. She's been watching it since she was 4 months old (she's now 15 months) and it is still her favorite video. The music is lively and it goes slowly enough and is repetitive enough to really capture a small childs attention. At 4 months you would think it is too early, but she loved it then and even now, it is one of the only things she will watch. It probably works well for up to about 3 or 4 yr olds. Other t.v. is boring and cartoons or animated videos do not capture them like real people and real objects. Best of all it is TOTAL immersion which is next to impossible to find. I hope this company makes a part 2 to this video soon!

2 out of 5 stars Not that good, January 8, 2004

Reviewer:   A viewer

My seven and three year old were interested but some of the images in this video were confusing. It's definitely not worth buying. You're better off getting it from the library or buying some cartoons in Spanish instead.
