My kids love this and ask for it all the time... they are aged 3 and 5 with a little spanish knowledge... enjoyment has lasted four months so far, and still have volume 3 to try out.

An absolute success! My second kid is using the 3-cassette set and my third one (6-yr old) is already watching. An ideal follow-up is José-Luis Orozco's "Diez Deditos and Other Play Rhymes and Action Songs from Latin America". Unbeatable pair.

HASH(0x9b2bfc90) out of 5 stars Entertaining and educational 14 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I had my doubts about this video before I actually sat down to view it. The animation, although it is 2 dimensional, is far from boring. The producer took pains to keep the story going with nice background music, and well placed repetition of key Spanish words. The story changes scenes fairly often to keep boredom from setting in. My children were captivated by the video and sat throughout all 3 sets, singing along and repeating the lessons with the characters. Before I got Hola Amigos, I also bought the french set (Bon Jour Les Amis) made by the same company, and I must say the French set did not keep my kids attention for long. I myself felt quite bored with the French one, which made me very skeptical about the Spanish one. But it was a nice surprise to see that Hola Amigos was well worth its investment. My only complaint about it is that it would have been better if it were completely in Spanish, rather than mixed with English. I believe that total immersion in a language education experience is the most effective way of learning.

HASH(0x9c631fcc) out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good 19 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I agree with the other reviewer. I was disappointed at first by the 2 dimensional animation. But all my kids (1, 3, and 7) love the videos. My 3 year old is especially fond of these tapes and wants to watch them constantly. The lower quality animation actually may be a positive because the kids focus more on the audio. I also believe there may be too much English, but the kids are definitely learning Spanish and having fun while doing it. The meaning of the Spanish words they teach are very clear and reinforced several times. I recommend these videos for a fun introduction to the language.

HASH(0x9b2bfc78) out of 5 stars Laugh and Learn Spanish! Fun and educational for all ages! 18 Nov. 1999
By Janet Hamilton - Published on Amazon.com
Paco and Lupe, a couple of cutesy chihuahuas, with the aid of a human or two, help children of all ages learn Spanish vocabulary and fundamentals. I teach Spanish and use it to encourage enjoyable learning for my grandchildren and my high school classes. Whether you're 5, 15, or 50, the songs and silly patter will enliven your lessons.

HASH(0x9f523eac) out of 5 stars Hola Amigos Box Set 18 May 2002
By Mary Rosenthal - Published on Amazon.com
My two year old daughter really enjoys the videos. I was disappointed like the other viewers intially with the animation. However, my daughter loves the tapes. Although, she is only two (the recommended age for viewing begins at four) she was saying several spanish words after watching the tapes for the first time. The videos are easy to understand the spanish words and allows time for the child to repeat the words. My husband and I have also learned from the tapes.

HASH(0x9ba2dac8) out of 5 stars like a film strip 31 May 2006
By abc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
My daughter did not like this video. There appeared to be very little animation, just a series of drawings, like a film strip. She asked me to turn it off after a few minutes. She preferred Professor Parrot.
