Anyone used Muzzy to teach new language?

Ok so it's a great marketing ploy "your child is a genious!" but really, I'd love DD to learn Spanish (I'd like to learn it too actually). Just wondering if anyone had used the Muzzy cartoon dvds and to what success? I'd love her to know more than she gets from Sesame Street and Dora! I do count and tell her colors in French and Spanish now. She's 14 mos so it seems like a great time to start.
Thanks!

Sarah

We have it, but none of us speak spanish yet. Fox does try though.....I guess pretty good for a little guy who's still mastering the English language LOL

He'll just repeat words like noches or he tries to sing the vowels in Spanish when it comes on....it just sounds like noise, but it sure is cute

My dd doesn't watch it much, but she did pick up on some Spanish from my sister, Dragon Tales, etc. When she was younger, maybe 4? She grabbed my dhs belly and said in a deep voice "grande!" and then grabbed hers and in a teeny voice said "pequino" She learned those from Dragon Tales I think, but applied them all by herself lol

Well, that was a round about way of saying, they're good dvds Our kiddos really like them.

Radish4ever, the question now would be... can you speak the language at all? Which one did you have? They aren't cheap either! Of course the mailer doesn't have the price on it, just says 30 day free trial. HAH! So I want to be sure she'll get something out of it if we get it.
Thanks!
