  • I have never tried it, but as a reading specialist I can tell you it is a scam. If you want your child to get a "head start" then the best thing you can do is talk to them a lot, read to them a lot, let them learn through play and exploration and limit tv/screen time as much as possible. Even if your baby can memorize the words on the cards and learn to "read" them, it is not going to help them in the long run, the other stuff I said before will be much more valuable for your child in the long run that that silly program. A big waste of money if you ask me.
    Use that same money to buy books, blocks, music, a sandbox etc. Those are what is educational at this age!!

  • What a hoax. I would never spend money on something like that (yes I've seen the commercials and I think it's the biggest load of bull**** ever.)

  • I vouch for hands on parenting (like poster #1 said) mixed with letting kids be kids.
