From Muzzy’s website:

Developed by the BBC, MUZZY’s “see and say, listen and learn” method patterns the way children learn their first language. MUZZY follows national foreign language standards which emphasize the use of functional language, repetition and “spiraling.” In MUZZY, words and concepts are first introduced, and then introduced again and again in many new contexts.

Guided Immersion Learning Portal
Children will access Muzzy’s simple easy interface that naturally guides them through the progression of discovering a new language. Self-guided learning makes it easy and delightful for your child.

Animated Stories
The cornerstone of the MUZZY program, the MUZZY Level I and II stories combine humor and adventure to keep children captivated as hundreds of new words and phrases are introduced and repeated in new contexts. Laugh along in Level I as Muzzy’s taste for parking meters gets him into trouble, and sit on the edge of your seats for the exciting helicopter chase that just may decide the fate of the kingdom. In Level 2, the bumbling Corvax coaxes sidekick Thimbo to assist as he tries again to secure a position as king of Gondoland.

More than 190 games and exercises reinforce new vocabulary, comprehension, usage, word recognition and writing skills. Designed to grow with your child and his or her expanding language skills, MUZZY is packed with activities for pre-readers, early readers

    My dd’s LOVE watching this and have learned how to introduce themselves as Princesses in Mandarin so something is working. I have a harder time with Muzzy since it is entirely in Mandarin, I often get confused as to what the word or phrase they are saying is referring to…most times it is obvious, but sometimes it is not. I have found that the translation book that comes with the DVD’s is VERY helpful to me (my dd’s prefer to just watch the movie). You can put on the subtitles, but I found that my dd’s then just read the subtitles and didn’t bother to listen anymore.
