"This is by far the worst baby DVD we ever bought. And it is the first time in three years that the advice of our fellow-Amazonians let us down. Four reviewers recommended this title, and I cannot understand at all why. Here is what's on this DVD: Very dark background, cheap and boring toys that don't do much, and THE worst pupeetering EVER! The duck puppet is handled from the side, not from underneath, and as a result you see this thing lying on its side all the time. All it can do is open and close its beak ... a far cry from the pupeetering of the Baby Einstein titles. The toys are shown in a strange kind of close-up, and the sequencing has no rhyme or reason to it whatsoever. Somebody just threw this together. There is an "educational" section in the middle: You see how ice melts in a frying. Here is the problem with this: My 16-month old does not get this BUT the scene right after this somewhat lame science experiement is a very boring snail toy that moves across the screen in slow motion, and my baby is bored by that. Which age group did they aim this at? 0-3? Don't make me laugh. The music is not good, either.... If I could have, I would have given this zero stars...."

"My three children like the music, but the quality is terrible. Not only does it give the feeling of being taped over one too many times, but the toys and props used also give it an old-timey feeling, which isn't pleasant. I had read such nice reviews and was really disapointed. There are a lot better dvd's to purchase than this one."
NOT Baby Einstein!!

"I purchased this video based on all the great Amazon reviews and the Parents Magazine Parents Choice Award title but I am very disappointed that I wasted my money on this soon to be dust collector. The quality is poor from all aspects. The colors are dark and they use terrible cloth backdrops, the film quality is amateur at best. The music and narrator are both annoying and the sound is awful. My six month old loves the Baby Einstein videos and watches everything with great intent but even she seemed bored by this video. The only good thing about the video are the basic concepts it attempts to teach, but it is not visually stimulating enough to hold a child's attention long enough to do so...."

"I got the Baby Prodigy parenting book as a gift with this DVD. My baby loves the music and loves Dookie Duck! I recommend it for everyone."
