Little Pim Review and Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! Winner from random.org is #12 Jessica. Congrats! I will send you an e-mail asap to get your address!



I have to say that I love how cute this little multilingual panda is! Little Pim is a well-done DVD series for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. They don't just have these in English and Spanish, they have the series in French, Italian, Hebrew, Japanese and Chinese.


I love how the DVD's use full immersion. Many of you know that I am a big believer in complete immersion. There is no translation needed with all of the pictures and repetition. My girls and I enjoyed watching the first DVD Eating and Drinking in Spanish. Each clip is about 5 minutes long with video clips of children using the real objects or doing the real actions with Little Pim saying the words in Spanish. So many times children learn single words in Spanish classes, but can never put them in a sentence. I love how in this DVD, they say words and then use complete sentences. At the end of each clip, there is a quick review over the words learned. There can never be too much repetition!




The vocabulary taught in the DVD was easy for my children since we speak at home, but they still loved watching it. I would have them say the words before Little Pim said them. It was a great way to practice speaking more. This DVD is a perfect way to introduce children to Spanish or review those who are starting to learn. It definitely captivates even the youngest viewers. My 16 month old daughter almost leaped out of my lap when she saw the dogs and cats on the screen (there is a cute episode on pets in the 1st DVD). It gave me a great opportunity to talk with her in Spanish and introduce the new words.




I also tried out the Little Pim Spanish Bop CD. It has become our recent favorite. You have to listen to the samples. The girls and I have been doing a lot of dancing to it! It has classics from Jose-Luis Orozco, but also includes Cantare, Milkshake and Dan Zanes & Friends. I love the mix and highly recommend this CD. Listen to the samples here, my favorite is Son Borinqueño.
