I need help picking out good DVD's to buy for my granddaughter.

I want to start purchasing some DVD's for my granddaughter (she just turned one) to enjoy when she is here. I take care of her when mommy is at work. I was thinking of joining one of those subscriptions. My kids are all grown up and this is my first grandchild so I am kinda rusty about which movies are good and which she needs to be older for. I am going to buy some of the classics because you never know when they will be unavailable. But I want to get her some that are newer since my kids were little. She loves music, animals, and more music. Any suggestions, idea, or info on good subscriptions? Thanks

  • The Letter Factroy by Leap Frog.
    Go Potty Go
    The My Baby Can Talk sign language series (still very helpful even now that my daughter is 27 months and speaks full sentences)

    Remember to limit how much she watches. Don't just leave the TV on in the background - she won't learn as much from her play and that's the best way she learns.

  • This can be controversial but I'm very picky about TV & most G rated movies have too much conflict & peril for a child this age. They’re great but not at 1 year old.

    She might be a little too old for many Baby Einstein DVDs but check suggested ages, some are 12-18 months+. My toddler quickly bores of those geared at tiny babies.

    Sesame Street is a safe bet, educational, entertaining, fun characters & events she can relate to.

    Signing Time is my daughters' favorite. It's sign language & spoken & the format has lots of singing, music, other kids, animations, at a pace that's comfortable for babies & toddlers while still engaging older kids. It's on PBS or DVD. I check out the DVDs from my local library rather than buying them for a better, rotating selection, at a fantastic price! Free!

    Sesame Street, Signing Time & aerobics are the only things we watch while Adorable Toddler is awake.
