I picked up this DVD for my son and I do not recommend it to someone who would like a good foundation for Mandarin learning (i.e. learning Mandarin as a second language).

First, Mandarin is a very tonal language, as such, speaking in exaggerated tones is very important early on. This is how I learned to distinguish different tones while trying to speak the language with my family, repetition and corrections of tones mean speaking the correct v.s. the wrong words. The DVD, while spoken slowly, is spoken in "childish," cutesy-voice (equivalent to English Baby-talk?) and as such the tones are often incorrect and inconsistent (as is the case with Pimsleur programs in Mandarin for adult, as well!). I much rather see a video that is spoken in not-overly-cute and standard-adult speech without sacrificing on the precise tone.

Second, I thought the video does a great job on introducing counting with measure words (a very important concept in Mandarin Chinese), but lack of repetition and lack of variety ultimately limits the vocabulary. I'm not asking for 30-40 measure words, but everyday things such as clothing, shoes, books are not included, yet those items are very common in a young child's life.

Bottomline: great for casual learners (or those who'd like to "brag" that "my kid can count 1,2,3 in Mandarin"), not for those who are hoping for a good foundation of learning the language.
