Wee TV: Little Pim

Wee TV: Little Pim

It’s a global world out there so why not give your lil one a head start on becoming bi-lingual from the get-go. With the Little Pim DVD series, tots are introduced to over 180 key words and phrases in French, Spanish, Japanese, Hebrew, Chinese or ESL. Developed by award-winning filmmaker and mother of two Julia Pimsleur Levine, the series uses both animation and real children to present words associated with playtime, mealtime and other daily routines.

The daughter of one of the world’s most well-known professors of languages, Levine was unimpressed with baby foreign language videos, which she felt lacked age-appropriate images. She soon developed the idea for Little Pim, a fun, lovable panda who would star in each of the 35-minute DVDs. With frequent repetition and word-object association the videos take advantage of kids’ brains ability to grasp additional languages before they turn five.

Jet-setting celebs like Angelina Jolie, Constance Zimmer and Kelly Rutherford are already known to be fans of the series. The company’s website boasts sample lessons from the videos and they can even be downloaded onto your iPod to up the learning while on the road. Before long, your lil genius will be greeting you with Bonjour, Hola, or Shalom.
