Item description for Baby Einstein: Baby's First Sounds: Discoveries for Little Ears (Baby Einstein) by Walt Disney Home Entertainment...
Overview Perhaps the sweetest sounds you'll ever hear are the babbles and coos that one day become "ma-ma", "da-da" and "I love you." Besides being music to your ears, these "baby steps" of language change everything as your little one discovers an exciting, pwerful new way of relating to the world! BABY'S FIRST SOUNDS invites both of you to share these memorable moments: those precious "firsts" that come around once in your baby's lifetime. Watch, listen and join in as your baby is exposed to five basic sounds: "ah," "buh," "duh," "ee," and "mm." Then, these sounds are connected to simple words in languages such as English, Spanish, Chinese, and French and reinforced with fun puppet shows, familier nursery rhymes and real-life images of loving parents spending together-time with their babies - all accompanied by beautiful classical music in the Baby Einstein tradition. You'll treasure this delightful program that encourages you and your child to have a "buh-buh ball" together!

uggg! hate baby einstein Feb 13, 2010
I have given baby einstein several tries and these dvds are just not good. This is last one I am purhcasing. Like for this one again why is everything almost in every other language yet only a few things in english. I would like it if my 7 month old was exposed more to english first since he cant talk yet versus 10 other languages.
Do not buy!!!!!!!!!!!! Feb 9, 2010
I gave it 1 star for the images and NOT the first sounds sound... images are good but the DVD is NOT what you believe it to be. I took it out of the dvd several times thinking maybe I bought the wrong language...then i thought ..maybe i will change it to english settings...no luck so I sat it through and then they started speaking some english.
I thought this dvd was teaching first sounds in english BUT this is not the case. I believe first sounds sound be the foundation to language and should be in 1 language, his native language.
I love the baby einstein collection and so does my 8 month old BUT we differ on this dvd... he likes it cause he loves the characters and I like the characters too but I don't like the different language aspect.
If you don't mind the 4 languages then it'll be a great buy.
Very sub-par Baby Einstein effort Jan 31, 2010
While I have to admit that my toddler will watch this DVD all the way through, it is only because we have lost all the other great Baby Einstein DVD's we owned when our 11-year-old was younger. One reviewer could not describe it as anything but weird, and I echo that sentiment. The classical music snippets are OK, but the original music is just not good. Remember how the Bach and Beethoven DVD's taught a basic musical scale? The one clip in this DVD that almost does that is the video showing the blocks stacking up (strangely) on top of each other, which involves a half scale and then a major chord, but then as the blocks disappear, the scale descends and then just becomes odd notes that have no logical relationship to each other. Not sure what that particular clip is trying to teach. And the little dancing finger bit is flat-out ridiculous.
Then there is the issue with all the languages. I am fine with teaching my child different languages, but the DVD goes way overboard with entire nursery rhymes being spoken in French or Spanish. I only know how the stories go based on the visuals, but no way can my toddler process all of those words and make a connection to what he is seeing. And why does baby's first sounds have to be limited to languages? How about birds chirping? Car or motorcycle engines? A train? Rain, thunder, the ocean, wind? More animal sounds than a lamb and cow? I guess the sound of a hippo slurping an entire pond through a straw is interesting enough, but there was just way too much emphasis on pronouncing words in different languages than introducing the real first sounds that a baby hears. Take advantage of the Baby Einstein recall on this one.
The best of the DVDs Jan 25, 2010
This is the only dvd of all the Baby Einstein DVDs I own, that my son will watch again and again. He has watched this from 3 months old and it still holds his attention at 19 months old. I remember thinking that I wished I had another one like it so that I could play something else he would like just as much. I purchased it after visiting my sister who owned this, and this allowed us a little time to do other things while my nephew and my son watched it over and over. I couldn't say that about any other dvd at that time. I think people who are confused by the many languages are confused, but I don't think the babies are confused at all. I normally don't even write reviews on products I have purchased as it is very time consuming, but felt the need because of the negative reviews. All babies are different. My other friend recommended the World Animals one, and my son couldn't care less about that one. Oh well, live and learn with your little one.
Dissappointed Dec 16, 2009
I am really sad I wasted my money on this dvd. I agree with the other reviews of great dissappointment!
