have you tried ebay ?

Hi, thanks. Tried Ebay, but only "region 1" vhs which dosent work on my video. I would have thought that Bumblee would have a U.K. distributor seeing as they are so popular.

whats a region 1 video, do you mean region 1 dvd?

I only found them in the states. check though as I was able to order PAL videos straight from them.

mamadadawahwah Fri 25-Feb-05 22:31:40

No. sorry not region one. what i meant to say is american video dosent work on U.K. machines. Dont know what "region" it is if any. We use PAL, and they use something else.

i have just had a quick look on ebay there are six lots for sale one i looked at was dvd region free, i think most video players now play pal and ntsc, other option is to get it converted from video to dvd, or from dvd to video.

thanks only joking. Will check it out.

baby bumble bee themselves sell PAL tapes from their site in the states though. Contact them directly but IIRC if you order as soon as they see you are in the UK they ship the PAL version.

my son is 2, but speech delayed with only three words. Do you think they would be helpful? I havent seen any of their videos but heard rave reviews??

ds1 wasn't that interested (non verbal autistic) but ds2 loved them (NT). I think they are good- I may try ds1 again - he wasn't that bothered by tv at all at the time. However the picture quality isn't great.

thank you jim jams. They cost a lot and i dont want to spend needless money!

Jimjams Fri 25-Feb-05 23:17:50

You could have one of mine- but I only have verbs- you may want to start with nouns.

mamadadawahwah Fri 25-Feb-05 23:25:03

Jim jams, that is very sweet of you and most cordial. I would very much like to take you up on your offer! I dont know how to contact you however. I would of course reimburse you for your trouble. Please advise of costs and how to to obtain same.
many many thanks (I really want to see if these videos would be useful for my ds).

Hi Mamadadawahwah (love that name btw!!)

Any DVD player worth its salt will play Region 1 DVDs (which is what these are). ASDA for instance sell cheap multi region DVD players.

As long as you get PAL videos these will play on your VCR, again though most up to date VCRs will play both formats.

Their website is http://www.babybumblebee.com. They also ship internationally (via the US Postal service). They've got a load of different ones out now.

HTH
