They were FANTASTIC for my DS. The 1-10 counting one taught him to count, the alphabet one taught him that, the colours one is great, I have even now recently ordered the prepositions and emotions ones! At first, I needed to basically force him to watch them, using choc bribes if he sat and watched even 2 mins. But the odd thing now is something about them (the music? the sameness of intro?) relaxes him and he will watch at least half a DVD voluntarily. The words ones were also good. I would pause them a lot and get him to say the words. Good luck!

I ordered one abo9ut a month ago but Ds doesn't seem to like it. He loves baby Einstein ones which Im sure helped him learn numbers and shapes but Baby einstein dont really do language ones.

Yep, thoroughly recc. even tho they are a bit cheesy. I am convinced that DS would not be where he is now verbally if we hadn't had them. He still watches them now and he is over 3!

thats great to hear ds has no speech at all so anythings worth a try

Be warned - we watched them for months before we got anywhere, so don't get disheartened if it seems that you're not getting anywhere at first. Also, DS really likes the Action Words and Numbers set. I find now, if we've had a busy day,. he'll ask me to put them on.
