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!

I do think these rings are on the pricey side ($125 - $399), but the fact that you can change the bead makes it versatile so it's like you're getting more than one piece of jewelry.
At first I was a little afraid to try and open the ring to switch beads because I didn't want to break it, but they're amazingly strong and durable. And they're made of 100% reclaimed sterling silver and 14 karat gold. Reclaimed meaning there's post industrial waste, just dormant metals and gems. This was a conscious decision by ring designer, R. Craig Whitten in an effort to help counter the effects of the top toxic polluter in the U.S., the mining industry.
