Reviews - What do customers think about Baby Einstein - Lullaby Time?
worst einstein yet Feb 8, 2008
I have many einstein videos to compare this one to. So let me say...don't waste your money! First of all, this video goes to a black screen for more than 7 seconds at times, between clips. My baby starts looking around and fussing every time there's a black screen. Second, it repeats the same clips over and over. How many times can my child look at the same ocean shot and still be entertained?! Not to mention, the age goes from entertaining little ones, to the kind of entertainment only a toddler would enjoy. And last, I'm sick and tired of having to fast forward through all of the stupid introductions before the video starts. They have to put the caterpillar clip on TWICE before the video starts. (But that's just a beef I have with ALL of their einsteins.) HATED this one! My baby gets excited with Mozart and Bethoven.
Disappointing Commercial Feb 7, 2008
The content of this video is a bit slow, which is probably more by intent than anything - I'm good with boring for bedtime preparation. My issue with this video is more the commercial at the beginning and the end of the video for the new Einstein Pals product line. They placed the commercial inside the "Play Once" and "Repeat Play" parameters, so once he's worn down from the 'boring' video, the stupid upbeat commercial comes on with louder tone and awakening pictures to ruin the "mood". Disney has plenty of other opportunites to market their materials without inserting a contradictive ad to what should be a mellow video.
American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no tv under 2 Jan 15, 2008
The name "Baby Einstein" can lull you into thinking it's okay or even good for babies to watch t.v., but the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no television at all to children under 2 because so many studies have proven its harmful effects on children. Studies have shown that:
- for every hour of television a baby watches a day, their chances of acquiring an attention deficit disorder increases by 10%. - among babies ages 8 months to 16 months, every hour spent daily watching programs such as 'Brainy Baby' or 'Baby Einstein' translated into six to eight fewer words in their vocabularies as compared with other children their age." - brain wave activity in babies is slower when watching television than when sleeping.
I believe television should be used SPARINGLY and with caution, and without any delusions of it increasing baby's intelligence. As for making them more intelligent, Dr. William Sears says, "relationships, not things, make babies smarter." The best way to make babies smarter and calmer is to carry them a lot. Slings, pouches and carriers help make this more manageable.
- Carrying babies an extra 3 hours a day resulted in 40% less crying!
Babies who are frequently carried pick up verbal skills faster, and develop better core muscle strength and balance. My Listmania list "Natural Parenting for Baby's First Year" has more information on babywearing, or you can google "babywearing" or "television and baby studies" for your own research.
Crown Crafts The Original NoJo BabySling by Dr. Sears - Black Chambray is a great starter sling.
Finally, I'd suggest "SIGNING TIME" videos - not to be confused with "Baby Signing Time" - as a last resort for OCCASIONAL viewing instead of other baby videos because at least baby can learn sign language. Communicating in sign language is proven to:
- reduce frustration and tantrums - accelerate language development - promote parent-child bonding
I found the entire series at my local library. I especially liked Signing Time! Volume 4: Family, Feelings & Fun DVD and 'naming' feelings also increases emotional intelligence in babies.
BABY EINSTEIN LULLABYS Jan 7, 2008
MY GRANDDAUGHTER LOVES THIS, WHEN SHE IS FUSSY AND NEEDS A NAP IT LULLS HER RIGHT TO SLEEP.
This was a miss - at least for my child Jan 4, 2008
We have several of the Baby Einstein DVD's and all of them keep my 5 mos old son entranced for the length of the DVD. I only use them on the fussy days when I just need a break. Figured this one might be good to calm him and keep him briefly occupied. Brief it is. He is bored within 5 minutes. Played it the whole way through several times and each time he starts to cry and turn away w/i a short time. Pop in another one and he is fine. When I watched it...it is soothing, but does not have the other animations, movement that the others have and I think he is bored. thankfully it was a gift!
