Welcome to our Baby Signs Blog!

Everyone at the Baby Signs home office was thrilled to see all the comments in response to our contest! We especially loved reading about favorite products. My own personal favorite is BeeBo, our teaching puppet. I remember the very first set of 10 BeeBos we created in Susan Goodwyn's (co-founder with me of the Baby Signs Program) living room. We had purchased 10 big Teddy Bears, 10 sweatshirts, and 10 sets of gloves at Walmart. We then had to cut all the bears' arms off and cut wholes in the backs of the sweatshirts so that the human's arms could become BeeBo's. It was quite an assembly line! Even those first make-shift BeeBos were a big hit--and the rest, as they say, is history.

Happy Signing!

BeeBo then . . . and today!

Oooh, I probably should have put that for Darcy's favorite! Every time we watch the Favorites video, she signs "bear" every time Beebo comes on the screen. I think I end up saying "bear" in response about a million times!
