GIVEAWAY: Potty Time DVD + CD! (US) -CLOSED-

Review by Veronica
Winner

There are a few things that my son (age 2.5) absolutely loves and can't get enough of.  When it comes to television, one of his favorites is Signing Time. I lived with a deaf roommate for three years in college and learned  ASL. It became a language I loved - and was happy to find out about Potty Time once I had my baby boy.

I have always loved Rachel Coleman's family story. Rachel is the co-creator of Signing Time and was very much involved in the music world singing and playing guitar in a folk rock band. However her world soon changed when she had a daughter, Leah who was born deaf.  A few years later, she had another daughter, Lucy who was born 8 weeks premature with spina bifida and cerebral palsy.  This amazing mother and her sister decided to create Signing Time.  For the full story, please visit the official Signing Time blog.

Therefore, when I was given the chance to review Potty Time for Tight Wad, I jumped at the opportunity. This video is as wonderful as the other Signing Time videos.  Today during lunch, my son and I listened to the music CD included with the DVD.  I just put him down for a nap and I can hear him saying, "My body is amazing!, Amazing!" - which is one of the songs included in the DVD/CD.
This video teaches little ones to start paying attentions to their bodies. Their body tells them when they are tired, hungry or thirsty - and when they need to go to the potty!  Rachel also uses three familiar characters in this video: cartoon versions of Leah, Alex and the adorable little frog, Hopkins that she uses throughout the Signing Time series. It teaches them to celebrate successes but that accidents are also very much a part of potty training.

Because my son is familiar with most of the Singing Time series, he already knew a lot of the signs - but having them in this context has put things in a new and fresher perspective for my little boy who is learning to listen to his body. 


My son has two Signing Time apps, 4 Signing Time music CD's and about 25+ DVR'd videos. So, yes - I love this series and this new DVD. By the way, if I ever meet Rachel, I'll likely embarrass myself big time.  LOL.

Just yesterday I had a friend ask me about the benefits of teaching a baby/toddler ASL.  It was a great discussion.  Please click here for Benefits of Learning ASL as a baby/toddler.
