Two Little Hands Products
Here is a little bit about each product line so that you can see which items would be best suited for your family!
Baby Signing Time
Baby Signing Time is designed specifically for babies 3 - 36 months old. This two-volume series sets your baby's day to music as you learn signs and songs for everyday events in baby's life such as eating, washing hands, sleep time, family members, pets, and more. The format of this program is a combination of original songs, animation, and real signing babies age 2 and under demonstrating each sign.
Baby Signing Time makes signing easy and fun and is a great product to start with if your child is under three years old.
Once you have 'graduated' from the Baby Signing Time series, you can go ahead and move to the standard Signing Time Series 1 product line, starting with Volumes 1-3 and moving on up from there as your child's sign language vocabulary develops. You'll already know many of the signs in Signing Time Volumes 1-3, but you'll have that added reinforcement and NEW songs to learn! (You do not want to miss out on the Silly Pizza Song in Volume 3!). Plus, your child will be introduced to the 'real' Alex and Leah and watch them grow up throughout the Signing Time series.
Baby Signing Time also makes an excellent gift for expectant mothers and new babies and is one of our best-selling products.
Signing Time- Series One and Two
Our award winning Signing Time DVDs will help you and your child learn basic American Sign Language (ASL) vocabulary words. Signing Time truly makes learning sign language easy, entertaining and fun for children of all ages. The format of Signing Time includes an adult (Rachel Coleman, co-creator) to model each sign, supported by footage of Alex and Leah (real kids, cousins in real life, Leah is deaf and Alex can hear, and Leah is Rachel's daughter), as well as footage of children and families demonstrating each sign in the proper context. Two to four thematic songs are sprinkled throughout each volume to help bring together all that you've learned.
The recommended ages for Signing Time are ages 1-8, although all ages love it and find it a fun and easy way to learn basic ASL signs. (If we can make it simple enough for small children to learn, older children and adults will learn in a snap!)
Each DVD is approximately 30 minutes long plus approximately 15 minutes of bonus material and special features such as interviews, bloopers, sign variations, and behind-the-scenes segments. All products are close-captioned and also contain English subtitles as an optional backup for captioning

How are TreeSchoolers videos different from Signing Time videos?

The goal of Signing Time is to teach ASL signs.
Both shows features original songs by Emmy-nominated host, Rachel Coleman.

And since research shows that signing can help preschool children learn and remember new concepts, it was natural to include a handful of ASL signs in TreeSchoolers, too! The following signs are taught in this episode to enhance understanding of the key concepts and social skills: weather, rain, cloud, lightning, thunder, sun, and kind (or nice)
