4.0 out of 5 stars Not Fancy, But Fun 26 Aug 2011
Some have critiqued the simplicity of this series as being unable to capture a child's attention. However, the simplicity is just what makes it perfect for children overexposed to special effects and explosions. I have a 2-year-old and a 3-year-old, and they STILL enjoy watching these. The segments are short enough to keep the attention of toddlers, but the overarching themes work for slightly older kids as well. Add to this classical music and the best of Hispanic poetry and nursery rhymes, and you have something definitely worth watching a second time.

Such a poor production... get together a few of your children's toys, invite your neighbours children round your house, play some music and get your camcorder ready for a cheap production. That's exactly what you get with these series from 'La vibora de la mar'. Besides, they are so boring they cannot even keep a 15 month old enganged. Never have. They lack action, colour, and knowledge about the psychology of the child. Save yourself some time and money and don't buy this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have DVD for babies under 3! 28 Jun 2007
By Linnea - Published on Amazon.com
First all all, I have to say that I write a column reviewing DVDs and CDs for babies and kids in a small monthly publication. As you can imagine: I've seen them all!

The A la Vibora de la Mar series truly stands apart in every sense: the beautiful images, the soothing music, the catchy songs, the engaging sound effects, the poems and rhymes... every little detail in these videos reveals a high quality production (this, sadly, can not be said for many DVDs in this category). They also expose a deep understanding of how babies learn.

I decided to write this review (my first one for Amazon) only because I am convinced that there should be at least one of the A la Víbora de la Mar titles in every household with babies under 3! (My enthusiasm comes not only from my research, but also from using this series with my own child).

Fortunately for babies, these DVDs do not intend to constitute a traditional foreign language program. (Do not expect the "pollito-chicken" structure or the tedious repetition of words and phrases...) And this is just great! Babies do not need language courses!! At this age, their brain is biologically prepared to grasp language NATURALLY... Anything else, may actually become more of a hindrance in his language-acquisition process. The best way to teach your baby a foreign language (whether you speak it, or not) is to expose her constantly to the SOUNDS of that language as early as possible, hopefully before they are 3 (optimal: before they turn 1!).

I can not emphasize strongly enough how important this is. It actually constitutes the "trick" in language learning. Vocabulary and grammar can be grasped at any age: there is not a big time-constraint for this: as adults, we continue to learn new words and we can easily learn or correct a grammatical structure... This is not the case with SOUNDS. If we were not exposed constantly, as infants, to the sounds of a foreign language, we may never be able to reproduce them (or even "hear" them... thus our impediment to reproduce those sound).

So it doesn't matter if you as a parent do not understand what is being said (babies who watch a DVD at an early age, do not understand what is being said in their own language either... it just doesn't matter). What matters is that the complete inventory of Spanish sounds is presented throughout the DO RE MI NIÑO DVD, embedded in song and rhyme, not in isolated words and phrases, which, alone, do not help much during this stage. Furthermore, the sounds of Spanish in this whole series are presented in the type of speech to which infants respond best: melodic, soothing, rhythmic, using "parenthese" strategies, and just a tiny bit high pitched... The DVD makes use of repetition as a learning tool, but in a nice pleasant way that is never boring.

Another plus: it is entirely in Spanish. This is completely desirable in foreign language videos for this age range (babies 0-3). Needless to say, only native speakers are involved.

Also from this series: Los Colores de Rufino and 123 Cuentame un Cuento

5.0 out of 5 stars A small treasure 8 Oct 2006
By grandma - Published on Amazon.com
After many recommendations, on a trip to Mexico I bought the whole collection of DVDs by A LA VIBORA DE LA MAR for my grandaughter, as a means to encourage her Spanish...

What a wonderful gift it turned out to be!! The featured songs and poetry transported me back in time to my childhood in Mexico, and have certainly brought back many wonderful memories... As for my grandaughter (who is now 18 months old), she has been enjoying these DVDS for ten months now, and they are still her very favorite ones. She sings and dances to the beautiful songs... and is always walking from room to room whith the boxes of her DVDs under her arm.

We are all delighted to hear her sing the nusrey rhymes and try to say the poems and stories that form part of our Hispanic heritage. This is truly a small treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dvd series 1 July 2007
By RD's mom - Published on Amazon.com
My cousin got a DVD by "A la vivora de la mar", Los colores de Rufino, as a joke and we ended up taking it as our son loved it. These videos are well done, with traditional Spanish songs and a lot of cultural references, which other DVDs don't have.
Son excelentes videos para asegurarnos que nuestro hijo este expuesto desde temprano a aspectos culturales latinoamericanos.

5.0 out of 5 stars very stimulating for our baby 22 Jun 2007
By Ana Santos - Published on Amazon.com
I received as a present the complete collection of A LA VIBORA DE LA MAR, and started with Aprendiendo Tempranito (2 to 24 months) followed by Do Re Mi Niño (6 to 24 months). Our baby is 6 months old and I have to say he absolutely loves them!!
Right from the start our baby responded to the images and music with a lot of attention and grateful surprise: he smiles, "talks" back, and kicks his legs in great approval... my husband and I have such a wonderful time just watching our baby enjoy the video, and the lyrics are so beautiful that we keep singing to him throughout the day!
It is quite evident that these videos are created for a specific age group, so I can't wait till our baby is ready for the other ones...

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Re Mi Nino 10 Mar 2007
By Gitte Gonzalez - Published on Amazon.com
I love this whole series. I've always thought I would be opposed to my child watching T.V. but I was wrong. My husband is from Peru and my spanish is not very good but I want our daughter to be bilingual. These videos are wonderful and we can't stop singing the songs. I'm learnig so much and all of her words are in spanish.
