Who Let Their Kids Watch Baby Einstein Videos?

by Trisha-and-Amy on October 24, 2009

Ok, me. (Well, one of us did.) A lot. They’re educational, right? Propping your kid up at 3 months lets you take a shower, right? Well….now it seems it wasn’t such a good idea. Thoughts? You can even get your $$ back….

I love Baby Einstein and find nothing wrong with the videos. I also NEVER bought them thinking my daughter would go to MIT in the future, so I had no expectations other than they’re entertaining and DO let me take a shower and go to the bathroom! LOL

Not returning my DVD’s!

My son is 7 months old and loves, loves, loves Baby Einstein! I am so not taking ‘em back. It keeps him preoccupied while I use the bathroom, yes, but also just gives me a break. Besides, who here didn’t grow up with Sesame Street?! God bless Baby Einstein…. ’nuff said.

My daughter (2 1/2) loves them also and I have to say my husband and I both think they definitly increased her vocabulary. With limits I certainly don’t think they do any harm. and they’re pretty cute. You have to wonder if these anti-TV people actually HAVE kids.

Oh please!!! Anyone who thinks a DVD is going to turn their child into a genius is a couple sandwiches short of a picnic basket. They are meant to entertain children, and maybe teach them how to say dog or cat. I used them to keep my daughter preoccupied so I could shower, use the bathroom, or eat something without having a little person screaming in my face. I’d take Baby Einstein over creepy Mr. Rogers anyday!!!
