Product Description

A painless way of learning a few things about shapes, numbers, letters, opposites, and good manners, Best Learning Songs Video Ever is an engaging treat for young kids who love music. The story finds Huckle Cat and his buddies putting on a backyard variety show that draws the entire town as an audience. With Huck as master of ceremonies and Lowly Worm as stage manager, the children of Busy Town entertain their families and friends with tunes about the fundamentals of an education. Besides Hilda Hippo's ABC song, there's Oly Owl's melody about shapes, and Alex and Anna's song about opposites. There's much more, including a couple of golden oldies such as "If You're Happy and You Know It." A real winner. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended! March 3 2004
Format:DVD
This is my 2nd Richard Scarry DVD - I also have the ABC DVD. Of the two, I think the ABC is better, but this one is quite good too. It covers a series of concepts with a song each, like counting, shapes, prepositions, alphabet, opposites etc. Of the songs, I don't find any of them memorable except the one teaching the alphabet, which is super (A is for apple, B is for bed, C is for crown that you wear on your head etc).
The DVD is about 30 minutes long, which I find ideal - you can get a bit of housework done without making the TV too much of a babysitter.
Be aware that the Richard Scarry DVDs look a bit low-tech, they are not flashy and polished like Sesame Street DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing new songs and great learning concepts Oct. 4 2003
Format:DVD
I'm a huge fan of the Richard Scarry DVDs and videos, and this one is certainly amongst my favourites. It is delightful to learn and sing some new songs with my 15 month all that can teach her about opposites, the alphabet, counting and shapes. The tunes are catchy, the music is appealing and the lyrics are well sung. Very sweet and simple, perfect for toddlers! I don't see myself getting sick of this video any time soon, whereas if I hear "Wheels on the Bus" and "Old McDonald" one more time....

5.0 out of 5 stars Play this one in a crunch April 29 2003
Format:DVD
I don't rely on the television to entertain my 20-month old, but when I absolutely have to get things done around the house, I put in this DVD. She LOVES it and is mesmerized for the entire 30 minutes. It isn't fast paced like most cartoons and has beautiful music and lyrics. I even find myself humming the songs as I work. Because of the quality of this DVD, I've purchased other Richard Scarry books and DVDs and have been just as satisfied.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very entertaining or inspiring April 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This video is the one that my child of 32 months is the least interested in. It is rather one-dimensional and does not engage the child. I found it to be boring and not fun. If I could return it, I would. Strangely enough, she and I prefer Barney's Let's Play School much more, even though it is choreographed.

1.0 out of 5 stars This really is the Worst Value learning video ever! March 26 2003
By Andrew
Format:DVD
Whatever the content (not bad), this has to be the worst value kid's DVD I have bought. Less than 30 minutes is what you get. A major [cheat.]

5.0 out of 5 stars Richard Scarry's Best Learning Song Feb. 8 2003
By Ryu
Format:VHS Tape
I have a 16 month old boy. He's been enjoying this since he was 12 month old. All the songs are beautifully composed both melodically and harmonically. I can enjoy these songs, too. Now my son started imitating everything form this video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids are engaged Jan. 19 2003
By Sharon
Format:VHS Tape
Both of my toddlers are engaged by this video. We don't play cartoons often for them, but this video is the exception. Children don't need state of the art cartoons, and this one is not, adding to the charm. The songs are catchy, and simple.
We have the abcs and 123s as well. All are entertaining. For parents who like educational videos that are exceptional, I would also recommend the Baby Animals series and Baby Know It All series for live action videos, and the There Goes A... series if you have boys, or girls, interested in everyday things.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great learning experience Dec 12 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This is a great video for children and parents. It is very entertaining and educational at the same time. It keeps the childs interest the whole time. It covers shapes, numbers, letters, directions...and so on. My first child received this as a gift and now my 2nd and 3rd watch it as well. This is by far my favorite video of my children's. It's a must.
