do they deserve to be scammed or are they really victims? Is the company at fault for preying on the gullible and people obsessed with creating overachievers, or should the parents know better?

I think of them more as volunteers than victims. That said, I received Baby Einstein videos when my DS was an infant and when he was a few months old he loved to watch them. I don't know exactly how much he could see, but I imagine it was the colors and the music that did it for him. I didn't expect it to make him smart, but it was entertaining and brought a smile to his face. I think some people actually did buy into the 'Baby Einstein will make your kid smart' theory. I just figure those were the uber competitive live-through-your-child types.
