I can't recommend this DVD enough. If you're interested in learning Makaton signing (which is what most baby-signing is based on), this DVD is both clear and comprehensive. The songs are well chosen, a mixture of old favourites and ones that I'd not come across before, the signing is clear to follow, but detailed enough that you're bound to pick up new signs and expand your vocabluary. My 2 year old son (who signs like a pro)loves it, as do my two older children who learn the signs so they can sing along with him.

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.

My daughter, who has Down syndrome and is autistic, loves this DVD. Although her verbal communication is very limited, she signs along to this animatedly. She's 18+, and, yes, well out of the target age range, but she does love it. Would recommend for other children/young people with communication difficulties.

My daughter with Downs Syndrome got this DVD for her 4th birthday and has watched it every day since. She copies a lot of the signing and enjoys watching the clips of children playing.

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.

I bought this for my little boy who has Dyspraxia and is not talking yet he loves it and is signing along. We are learning Makaton and I bought this as an aid to help us practise I would recommend this to anyone with children whether they "need" Makaton or not. It's a pity there isn't any more Singing Hands and Makaton material available on Amazon

It's Signing Time is my 18 month daughters favourite (and her best)! If I let her she's watch it all day! It's really interactive and had us all singing and signing along after just a few watches. Fantastic DVD, you won't be disappointed.

I have two autistic grandchildren and they both love this DVD. They love the songs. The pace of this DVD is just right. Well worth the money.

I bought this for my 4 year old son who has autism. He loves nursery rhythmes and absolutely loves this DVD. The sign is clear and easy to follow for both Sam and me and it has really improved my sign too. My son seems keener to try and copy the sign I think because he can see the other children doing it. Its an easy DVD to watch and not at all annoying, I can't recommend it enought. I also have singing hands 2 which is just as good.
