Baby Einstein



As some of you might recall, I got to visit the Baby Einstein headquarters in CA this past winter. I learned about the Baby Einstein DVDs and toys and how the company was started by a stay-at-home mom in her basement. (I love that part!)

I'm sure most of you are familiar with the Baby Einstein videos and have probably enjoyed them with your little ones and/or put baby in front of one so you could take 20 minutes to shower and change the clothes you've been wearing for 2 and 1/2 days. But did you know that some Baby Einstein videos now include a "Grow with Your Baby" feature. The Grow with Me mode offers a second viewing option on the same DVD. It contains spoken words and additional content to entertain toddlers and prolong the life of the DVD.

It also features the new "Select a Segment" option which gives parents the choice of viewing shorter segments of the DVD. You know, when it's almost bedtime and the kids are begging for a video. You want them to be able to sit down, settle down, and enjoy their DVD, but you don't want them staying up to finish the whole thing. This is perfect! Just play a segment for them! They get to enjoy their video and you get to say, "All done! Time for bed!" without them saying, "Huh uh, it's not done. See? There's still more, Mommy!"

These new features are both included on Baby Einstein's World Music DVD. The World Music DVD introduces your little one to the beautiful sounds of music and different cultures from around the world. From the African djembe to a Celtic harp from Ireland, you and your baby will delight in the sounds and rhythms of Baby Einstein's World Music.

And I have a Baby Einstein care package to give away to one random winner! It includes the World Music DVD, a Sweet Dreams Mimi board book, a Playtex sippy cup, a Playtex divided dish (both featuring Baby Einstein designs), and a Baby Einstein Teeth and Tug Pal. Just leave me a comment here and I'll choose a random winner on Wednesday, June, 24. Good luck!

We LOVE baby einstein in our house and are on baby #2 with it. Your right, it's great for when I need that few minutes to grab a shower and we like it so much better than some of the cartoons these days. I think thats cool about the new features especially just picking a small part to watch instead of the whole thing.

trousseau4 said...

Love, love, love Baby Einstein. I discovered them when my 6 year old was born. The DVD's provided many hours of entertainment and she will still watch them today w/ her 3 year old sister. I also have a sippy cup, plate, and fork and spoon set that have lasted forever. I love that it was started by a Mom. What a great idea and now it has skyrocketed into a huge assortment of items. I have a niece who is expecting and this would make an awesome shower gift. Thanks for all of your giveaways Dawn!!!

Anonymous said...

I love Baby Einstein. Anything that stimulates my baby's mind gets a thumbs up from me! Plus the videos are not so annoying that after watching them a few times you have to hide them LOL!

Anything that would keep my daughter Emma out of my hair for a couple of minutes a day is something that would be worth more than its weight in gold! :) Never tried the Baby Einstein, but heard it's great.

Have a great day.
