Hi, E. B. I'm E. B, too! :-) Anyways, my daughter is 20 months old and I have all those Brainy Baby, Baby Einstein DVDs, but a few months ago, my boyfriends mother bought her her own portable DVD player (to save us during our long trips from MD to TN) and she got her Dora's La Maestra de Musica DVD to go along with the player (and Strawberry Shortcake and an Elmo's World DVD, too). My daughter has NEVER been one to sit in front of the TV..she'd rather play or read a book than watch TV. In the beginning, I would of rather my daughter learn to like something else other than Dora because I want her to learn ENGLISH before she learns a different language. But, this Dora DVD has singing and dancing and my daughter loves it (at least the first two shows out of the four on there...her attention span doesn't run much farther than those two). But, the first show on there has the wheels on the bus and some other sing songy songs and to be honest...her watching that show has made her sing herself some of the words "Hola, Hola, Hello, Hello" and she loves doing the motions when the wheels on the bus song comes on and Swiper comes, too. She has learned some new words and animal sounds from it, too (Dora, Diego, Snake and it hisses, crocodile and it chomps, and she actually has begun to count a bit with saying them and using her fingers to count, too).She only watches this DVD to settle her down right before her bedtime (she will go and get her player when she knows it's time to settle down) and she absolutely loves it. I haven't tried a few of the DVD's mentioned on here and I may try them soon because I am trying to get her interested in something other than that ONE Dora DVD. :-) Good luck though! Hope this helps.
