“Which video series should I start with: Baby Signing Time or Signing Time?”
This is a question that many parents ask us. In truth, your children will learn sign language with any of our American Sign Language (ASL) videos. Here is what our Customer Care team says about choosing the video series that will best fit the needs of your family:
- If your child is age 0-3, start with Baby Signing Time
- If your child is 3 or older, start with Signing Time
- If you have a child in each age range, the choice is yours. However, we recommend starting with Baby Signing Time and then “graduating” to Signing Time because we’ve found that older kids enjoy Baby Signing Time just as much as infants and toddlers do!
- If you have a child with special needs, choose the series that best matches your child’s current developmental abilities. If your child is attending school, the Signing Time videos teach school-related vocabulary, greetings, and manners.
- This delightful 4-volume set was created specifically for babies aged 3-36 months.

- Alex, Leah, and Hopkins the frog are lovable animated characters.
