Baby Einstein - Language Nursery
This DVD is more than just a digital version of the video--it incorporates three Baby Einstein Company products in one. From the DVD menu, you can enter the "Home Theater," which plays the award-winning video. Or you can enter the "Concert Hall" to play the music heard in the video or the spoken-language bits (the alphabet, nursery rhymes) in their native tongue. The "Language Lab" features a digital version of Baby Webster, the company's flash-card product for youngsters. These flash cards contain text, pictures, and pronunciations of simple, everyday words in eight languages, including Japanese, Hebrew, Spanish, and English. All programs can automatically repeat for extended play. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In case you don't know, Language Nursery is a Video Board Book that exposes babies and toddlers to the sounds of different languages. With real-life images, toys and nursery rhymes, this video is really entertaining with the sounds of phonemes (the sounds of different languages). Even though it's a Video Board Book, parents out there have to interact with the images on-screen with your child and even have fun! One thing to keep in mind, this video is not made to teach your baby foreign language.
Now the Bonus Features on the 2004 DVD:
First up, there's language tracks that play the film in either English, French or Spanish. On it's own, it's kind of silly, but it's pretty useless. Next are Discovery Cards in 8 different languages! First the picture is shown, then the written word and the spoken word all in sequence. The Alphabet and Counting segments on this Digital Board Book are also present in 8 different languages in a unique format. For example, the English alphabet has both uppercase and lowercase and for Counting, a certain thing is shown on the screen that corresponds to that number, like 2 dump trucks or 20 bees. Toy Chest shows a product catalog for all of the toys found in the program.
I highly recommend this Video Board Book to your little ones. While the box says 0-3 years, it can be used for 3 month olds as well. Pick up a copy on Amazon or eBay if you get the chance!
I also recommend looking in to: So Smart baby videos, Brainy Baby videos and baby Gourmet. All are Great VIDEOS!!!!!!!
We were all ready to watch and enjoy the "Theatre" with our 4 1/2 month old. We saw a pop-up teddy and heard someone say Hello, then we saw some fish swimming in a tank, which our daughter loves, and then we saw a black and white shape and heard someones voice speaking in another language. We tried to go back to find where we could select to hear the DVD in the English language but we could not find that option. I knew that this DVD was supposed to include foreign languages but I didn't know that out of nowhere the video would jump from one language to another without any warning. I thought our copy of this DVD was broken. After trying to watch the entire DVD without any interruptions, I finally figured out that our copy of the DVD was not broken. The creator designed to have the different languages "jump around" all over the place. I also figured out that the different languages were dictating alphabets, numbers and nursery rhymes (not in that order). It is great to teach babies and children different languages BUT HOW DO WE PARENTS (THAT ARE NOT MULTILINGUAL) KNOW WHICH LANGUAGE IS BEING SPOKEN OR WHAT IS BEING SAID. It would be great to flash the language that is being spoken and what is being said. Or even, allow the parents to choose which language they would like to play the DVD in. Unfortuntely, our first baby einstein DVD experience was not that great or what we expected. Hopefully our next baby einstein purchase will not be the same, or it may be our last.
The home theater section is just like others have commented, a stream of sing-song like speaking. there are visuals associated that sometimes don't match up. It is tough to follow because the languages are all mixed up in order and there are no cues to tell you what language it is.
The only section that I like on this video is the language lab index (a very short segment of the DVD). There are vocabulary words stated with pictures that flash on the screen. there are separate lessons for the seven languages (this time you choose the language). This is more developmentally appropriate, but be aware, they also sell Baby Einstein cards to go with the video. Had I known, I would have just bought the cards and did the same thing myself.
Regarding the navigation of the DVD, it is awful. There is a caveat in the parents guide that states it varies by DVD player. However, the menus are compartmentalized, so there is no way to get back to a "main menu" without stopping the DVD and starting again. Strange.
I am not giving up on the Baby Einstein videos. I have heard great things about the Bach, Mozart, and Neptune. I will definitely read the reviews first and possibly rent from the library next time.

I normally just love the baby einstein series, but this one was very disappointing. It had the same images more then a couple times, and my son got bored of it very early. Read morePublished on March 12 2005

The video was just okay - I don't think my daughter picked up any words. The other Baby Einstein videos are better and kept her attention longer. Read morePublished on May 18 2004

My least favorite BE video. Rather boring and not very captivating. I was hopeful due to my teaching our son spanish--but it bores me to death. Read morePublished on March 20 2004
As a parent I of course though this video was kind of odd. But my we got this DVD for my daughter when she was six months old and everytime it's on she can't take her eyes off it. Read morePublished on March 16 2004
I'm not sure what the point of the various languages is. For an infant, it's just unusual noises he won't hear again, or often. Read morePublished on Feb. 14 2004 by Ellis Godard
