  • My son LOVES his Baby Einstein collection! He learned how to say "cow" and "cat" and what noises they make. He sings along with the melody and has a great time. I recommend them but I know that every child is different. My bff's kids won't watch anything but disney movies! So buy one at Best Buy or something and see if your baby is interested. Mozart was my sons favorite when he was an infant :)

  • Both my girls LOVED the Baby Einstein movies! If you are worried that your baby won't like it, you might check and see if you can borrow it from your local library or rent it from Blockbuster. Then you can see which ones your baby will like more and just buy those.

  • Many babies really are interested in them. Just like kids are really interested in ice cream, candy, and soda, however, kids do not always know what is good for them. I think the Baby Einstein movies are junky brain candy. Just a bunch of spinning toys set to music. There are a few Brainy Baby videos that are truly educational, a music DVD called Trebellina that is amazing (teaches babies to read music), and a foreign anguage series called Muzzy that is great when the kids a a little bit older (like two). Brainy Baby and Trebellina are just as interesting toa baby but do not have the advertising dollars that Baby Einstein does. Good luck.

  • Our son LOVES them- we got him his first Baby Einstein dvd when he was 6 months old- and they're his favorite things ever. He's watched other kids programs and showed little interest- but he hears the Baby Einstein songs start on tv and gets delighted. He laughs and interacts with it like nothing else. I was skeptical too at first- but he's made a believer out of me! I highly reccomend them!
