Little Pim Review

As I've mentioned before, whether we homeschool our girls, send them to a local private school, or send them to our public schools, we know one thing is for sure, we will be making sure that they learn a second language. We've chosen Spanish to be that second language because of where we live.



I've been searching for great Spanish language learning programs and I've found a few. One of the newer ones I have found is Little Pim. The series uses a panda bear named Little Pim to guide your child through everyday life. Using the Entertainment Immersion Method™, Little Pim leads Zoelle on everyday adventures through repetition. I have found the repetition to be the most helpful and useful thing for Zoelle to learn Spanish.

Some things I absolutely love about Little Pim besides the repetition is the cartoon character of Little Pim himself. Zoelle seems drawn to the cartoon character and while we haven't allowed her to watch cartoons before, we have allowed her to do this as it is educational. We reviewed the In My Home  DVD which is the 4th DVD in the series. This DVD is 35 minutes long and is broken up into seven 5-minute episodes which as anyone with little ones with short attention spans know, is super helpful.



Without a doubt, I plan on buying the whole set to use for Zoelle this Fall when we do our little preschool time each day! She loves it and so do I!

  1. It looks like a great set! Do you think your girls are picking up Spanish from the DVD? Also - Are there any Spanish-speakers in your family or in your community?

  2. It's great that you're teaching your girls Spanish. I'm trying, but I have lost a bit of my mojo this summer. I now work outside the home which makes it a bit more challenging.

  3. Stephanie-Zoelle is for sure picking up Spanish from the DVD. Meridian is still a bit young, although if I say Hola to her she says "hi" which I am pretty sure she learned from hearing this DVD. No Spanish speakers in my family, but in and around our community there are many.

    Karen-That is my one fear that I am going to be all excited to start, but I won't follow thru on it. Hopefully, all my blog friends can hold me accountable! :)

  4. This sounds like a great program. My daughter can count to 10 in Spanish already and that's just from Dora so I could only imagine what this would do for her. I'm new to your blog! Looking forward to reading more:)

  5. Nicol, I really think that this is a great program for kids. It engages them and makes it fun to learn something new. They actually don't even realize they are learning something new, but they are. My oldest is constantly asking to watch Little Pim. I say, go for it! :)

    Glad you are here, and hope to see more of you!
