I had heard of the Baby Einstein in the past, but had yet to ever seen a video. I knew that they were videos with fun sounds and colors, and I was extremely excited to try out a video for myself once my little boy was here. I was even more excited to find out that Baby Einstein has come out with what they call Discovery Kits, which are innovative new interactive experiences to help parents introduce babies to the beautiful music, nature and animals for which the company’s products are known. It all sounds pretty good to me!
Each Discovery kit ($19.99)¬† features a DVD, a music CD and a picture book or Discovery Cards. Each element complements the others. The new kits encourage parents to take what they and their child have seen on screen, in the book or on the discovery cards, or listened to on the CD and apply it to baby’s every day life. They were created to grow with babies and are organized in a way that offers three distinct levels of discovery: Experience, Explore, and Expression. With my baby being a newborn, we started out with the experience level: Baby Mozart.
The Baby Mozart DVD is great! My little guy is still very young, but once I put him down in front of the TV to watch the DVD his eyes lit up with all the vibrant colors. The soundtrack to the DVD complements it perfectly, and the Mozart music is a great way to stimulate your little one. I am not a big believer in plopping your child down in front of the TV, but I have heard how important it is to stimulate your child’s developing brain, and I think this DVD is a great way to do that!
Now for something fun! Baby Einstein is giving away a Discovery kit for one of our readers!
