When my grandchildren were babies, they loved watching this video. I was suprised at how quickly they learned the signs. I think the repetition, music and pace of the video was a big plus. This has become my favorite gift to give to my "grandmom" friends who have young grandchildren.

Baby Hands Productions, creators of the My Baby Can Talk product line, was founded on the principle that babies can communicate at a very early age and with the commitment to offer educational products to promote early language development from simple gestures to first spoken words. The My Baby Can Talk products teaches preverbal babies and their parents to communicate using simple gestures to bridge the gap between the time babies can communicate with their hands and the time babies can speak. This period of time generally falls within the range of ten to thirty-six months.   

Babies are able to communicate at a much earlier age than they are able to speak and research has shown that babies who use sign language tend to speak sooner with larger vocabularies. This video teaches babies American Sign Language (ASL) in a format that delights the senses while tapping into a baby's natural language abilities. This award winning series encourages babies and parents to communicate at an early age, reducing frustration and creating a special bond that is so important for healthy child development.

We suggest that you watch the video with your baby several times each week and at the same time during the day until your baby has learned all the signs that are of interest to him or her. Pick a time when your baby is well rested and most playful.

You may want to consider the time that the video is playing as a time to teach your baby to sign using the video as a learning tool. The video should be viewed as a resource to encourage interaction between you and your baby using sign language. Your baby will look to you to determine how her or she should interact with the video. Therefore, if you watch the video, comment on the images and sounds, point at the images, say the words and make the signs as they are presented then her or she is more likely to do the same.

There are many ways to watch the video with your baby and our advice is that you try a couple of methods that we have found to be very useful. One method is to place your baby on your lap and make the signs that are presented on the video on your baby's body or in front of your baby as each sign is presented in the video. Another method is to sit next to your baby or facing your baby and sign on your own body.

I wish I had had this video back when the twins were 10 months old so I could've started them on hand signing much earlier. I loved the way that the signs were presented with animations, live footage and actual babies doing the signs. I was immediately hooked by the first sign, which was "cat". I LOOOOVE cats, so having one on the screen first thing made me so happy. The twins also seemed to be enjoying the video, although they couldn't sit through the whole 45 minutes (not enough attention span for that). The video is also great for my husband and I to learn the signs easily, so we'll understand if one of the twins learns a sign and starts to use it.
