I bought this product for my one year old daughter, who, at the time was not really talking much or recognizing a lot of words (which had me a little concerned!).
However, after watching the first video, she was saying the words, pointing to her nose, saying HI, and singing The Itsy Bitsy Spider, with the hand motions!
Then, video 2 teaches Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes, as well as If You're Happy & You Know It... and she now sings the words AND does all of the motions. She also repeats all of the words on the TV.
Bottom-line: If your child is not easily distracted and will actually watch the videos, this will MOST CERTAINLY benefit and teach them. There are some questionable and stupid word choices like "FUN", which they try to show by "running", and that's confusing... Also words like chimpanzee, gorilla, and monkey- all in a row, which confuses a kid, and I wouldn't have picked those words.... That said, I do think it is very valuable overall, as you can teach your child the more common words like "cup" and "hot" (and they should already KNOW those!! If they don't, you're not doing YOUR job, sorry!) I will say that I had her watch volume ONE once a day for about 5 to 6 weeks before she caught on. However, she caught on much more quickly with Volumes 2 and 3, and we are already ready for 4.
