Can I play your DVDs in my country?
All 4 of our DVDs and all 8 of our videocasettes can be played in the countries listed below, which use the U.S. video system "NTSC".
If you live in a country not listed below (and you do not have a DVD player or video player and TV that are specially configured to play both NTSC and PAL signals) then you may order the PAL version of our 8-program series on one DVD - The DVD 8-Set (DVDPSP1-8: "Little Kids doing Big Things" PAL format).
This PAL system DVD carries exactly the same programming as our regular NTSC version, and is also priced exactly the same.
At this time, only the full 8-program DVD is avalable in PAL format.
Can I play your videocassettes in my country?
Each of our 8 Preschool Power! videos can be played in any country you see on the chart of NTSC countries listed below. They are not available to customers who are not able to use the NTSC signal format because they live in a country using the PAL or SECAM format.
Be advised that shipping costs out of the U.S. or Canada have become quite expensive compared to the low shipping costs of our 8-program DVD. In fact, it is likely that the cost for you buy a new DVD player today would approach the extra cost of shipping the 8 videocassettes (weighing over 2 U.S. lbs.) to you via Priority Mail International. A DVD with all 8 programs will only weigh 5 ounces, and will be much cheaper to ship.
