 We just bought it for DD. She is a little over two. I sit and watch the video with her. I act like the video is fun and exciting so she thinks it is too. Her favorite is the slider cards and the books because they pul out and she loves doing it on her own. She said a lot of words on her own already but she is starting to read some of them already. She knows she cant pull on the pull out section unless she attempts at the words. Its working for us but I think it depends on how much effort both the parents and the child put into it.

I've never used it but I think the whole idea of pushing academic skills on children before at least first grade is ridiculous and stupid and just developmentally WRONG.

 its a waste of money.many kids that learn to read by sight memorization, and not phonetically have a much harder time staying caught up in school later in life.

My husband really wants to get this for our daughter. A friend of his has it for her daughter and she says it works great. So my FIL is planning on getting for our daughter for her first birthday.

Own it and it's a waste of money. It was a gift and i could see maybe if you only had 1 child and they couldn't move around like 6 months old. Because they want you to play the dvd 2 times a day for them *i can't get my kids to sit through them* And then they have flash cards and books that they want you to do every day! Oh and your kids should know the words in like a month before they go on to the next dvd and flash cards.

It might work for some but all in all save the money tell her to get a baby can sign dvd. Those seemed helpful! LOL!
