Love the voice modulation and various sound effects. My child who doesn't sit quite for few seconds was able to sit and listen for 45 min straight! She loves the stories and has already learnt a few of them and keeps repeating them now.
My daughter likes to fall asleep to a story cd and unfortunately the difference in sound level between the stories and the musical interludes is too great. The music is too loud, when the story is at the right listening level, and wakes her up. Obviously if your not using at bedtime its great but just thought this might be useful information if your little one likes a listen at bedtime x
The stories are cute and read nicely but the jingles that signals the end of 1 story and another beggining is insanely annoying. And just when you think your kid is asleep it pings on really loudly and their little eyes ping open. Crazy!
Brought these after a recommendation from a friend. I just found my 5 year old just would not settle and stay in bed after 3 stories, numerous visits to the toilet and oh I want a drink, anything to draw bedtime out even further! These are great and you can have upto 5 stories on one cd, I find sometimes they have fallen asleep by track 2!
This is a lovely set of stories but the CDs all jump, despite cleaning them, cleaning the CD player. We play other CDs regularly that work fine. The first time we put each Of the 5 CDs in they have jumped and have continued to do so ever since. Unfortunately I have missed the return window as I ordered them well in advance for my son’s birthday so we didn’t play them immediately. It’s a real shame as they are lovely stories.
Again arrived on time and well packaged. I find these audio stories are great for bedtime as the children relax and wind down quickly. The sound effects are very good as it brings the story alive. I have already recommended to friends and family. Will be buying more in the near future.
Does the job and provides all the classics Annoying narrator and boring tone Julia Donaldson CDs much better for entertainment but a good round up of classics (although did not know the last little pig in three little pigs went out for turnips and apples!)
While my children love have us reading the books to them the CD in the car was too boring. Obviously same stories but cut down but seemed very mono toned and not excitingly read to keep them captured in the story.
