What’s the best program for teaching my small children Latin American Spanish?

I bought the Muzzy Spanish learning set and was VERY dissapointed. My kids liked watching it, but I didn’t like the story line at all!! Has anyone else watched it and thought the same thing? I don’t want my 3 and 4 yo to learn how to say "I hate him!" or "I hate work!" in Spanish. I don’t even want them to learn to say that in English! And what’s with the whole thing with Corvax kidnaping Silvia"s baby to raise her up to mary him? Anyone else find that disturbing? The only part I did like was the vocabulary builder. That was pretty cool!

My kids didn’t like the games on the cd-rom at all, and they usually love playing computer games.

Is there anyone out there who has used something they loved and would pass it on? I would like it to be Latin American if possible. Thanks so much!!!!

  1. oh yeah, i have a big opinion on this. My family is from south america, i was raised speaking both languages and i want my son to be raised the same. So far, this what i found that is working:

    Dora the explorer-spanish- Univision on sunday at 8-9 a.m
    they also have the dvd on amazon.com..

    Bob the Builder- in spanish..this is great…bob and his buddies are soo much more cheerful…you can see this with ONDEMAND (cable) under PBS Kids- En Espanol…
    they used to show this on univision as well on sat at 9 am but they are not anymore

    plaza sesamo—who can go wrong with this…

    That is what i found so far…all the other spanish shows are not quite what i have in mind for my son

    good luck
    (all times are west coast) (ondemand is a comcast feature
