The ladies who sing the songs are engaging and have pleasant voices... you'll find yourself humming them long after the DVD has finished. 'Something Special' fans may recognise them from their appearances on the show.
My son and I have had the pleasure of doing quite a few singing sessions with them in person as they visit Great Ormond Street hospital weekly. They are just as lovely in person as they come across on the DVD.
All round a great DVD jam packed with songs, engaging both for able and disabled children.
As a parent and a musician, I have a couple of minor gripes, hence this gets 4 rather than 5 stars. First is that for parents of children with delayed language (for whom Makaton was originally intended) the shots of babies and toddlers does rub in that your child's language is at baby/toddler level, likewise the songs about milk and nappies. Then with my musician's hat on, the ladies' tuning is not always accurate, and the out of tune notes do grate on repeated playings ('I went to the park and I went down the slide' is particularly painful), plus the songs are sung at a pitch which is too low for small children to sing along with (a common fault with quite a lot of children's music CDs/DVDs).
But the main purpose of the DVD is to teach Makaton and they do that aspect of it very well.

The inaccuracy of the Makaton vocabulary is just to much. To many mistakes. The lack of footage to learn the signs (focusing on the children around the room not the signing). Read morePublished 9 days ago by D C
