I would not recommend it. If you want you child to "get ahead" then read to them and play with them and limit "screen time". One of the best predictors in future reading success is number of vocabulary words a child knows. Talking to them, reading to them, and playing with them is the best way to build their vocabulary and knowledge of the world so that they can succeed later. Programs like My Baby Can Read attempt to build a house without a foundation. It make look impressive at first, but it won't last.
Spend your money on some blocks, books, a sandbox, and trips to the zoo instead.
