Cheaper than Baby Einstein--We love it!!!--Must Have!

"I have all the Baby Einsteins. I found this at Sam's and thought it looked similar. It was half the price of my Einstein collection AND it includes music CD's as well.
I am very surprised more people have not reviewed these. That could be they are just not advertised as well. These are similar to the Einstein videos but with a bit more action. Same concept. My babies ages 9 months and 2 love them. The best part is that the music CD's come with them for free!! For example Baby Einstein videos DO have music soundtracks but you must buy them seperately for the same price. OUCH! My babies love to hear the music in the car from their favorite videos but with Einstein you must buy them seperately.
Baby Genius has 2 in each pack. One is a DVD and the other is a CD soundtrack. So the babies recognize the music in the car as being from their video at home. It is really an incredible deal. Honestly this package is well worth 200 dollars and they are just giving them away at this price.
THese also have a wider variety of music than Baby EInstein. They have classical plus nursery rhymes and others. It is fabulous. One of my greatest finds as a mother of babies/toddlers."
Must have in your DVD collection! Better than Baby Einstein!

"I just love how they use the real classical music. Not the ones played by keyboard that you can listen on Baby Einstein products. My boys ages 3 1/2 and 5 grew up watching Animal Adventures and A Trip to the San Diego Zoo. They still love to watch them. It's filled with wonderful video clips of all kinds of animals and great music. I play the music in the car and at night. My boys actually love to listen to classical music and understand how the composers try to draw images in listeners' minds through music. They also love the songs with baby genius characters.
My boys also love the Favorite songs & rhymes DVD's. They're such a great 'music video' for kids. The CD's also have many bonus songs we love to listen to.
I now have a 5 mo old baby. I just got this 8 pack and love every one of them! He gets to grow up with all 8!!! He already watches few minutes every now and then and he goes to sleep at night with the classical music.
I think the quality of this DVD & CD combo far exceeds other similar products in the market. I wish they had 6 stars!
This 8 pack is such a great deal!

"Economically speaking, I wish I had bought the Baby Genius 8-pack first thing. We only bought the 3-pack. Our daughter (now 19mos) learns and responds more to Baby Genius than Baby Einstein, so now we are ending up buying the rest anyway. The Baby Genius audio is mostly classical music (whole pieces from start to finish). And the video is more of the real thing -- images of real animals or kids -- not as much puppetry or animated characters like in Baby Einstein. So we think she gets more out of BG. When we sit and watch with her, (which is the best way for her to learn) it allows us more quality interaction with her . But when we can't sit down with her, we feel better knowing that she is seeing more real-life images instead of so much puppetry or animation that is on Baby Einstein. Not that there's anything wrong with animation, and BG does have it, but I think Baby Genius is more thoughtful about using it. For instance, only a few months into her life in this world, our daughter doesn't know what a cow looks like. If you put in BE's "Neighborhood Animals," her first intro to cow will be to see a pink, wooden puppet cow that flies! Or, before she knows what a cabbage is, she will see one move across the screen, as its on the head of a puppet...funny perhaps for us, but does she get it? Baby Genius introduces her to the world with beautiful shots of real-life animals just doing their thing, and with real kids who see them at the Zoo or play with them. She names all the animals and squeals with delight to see them play. Then, just when we thought she was only responding to the animals, she is trying to say "numbers are friends" and counts to 6. (!!) (There is an occasional animated counting song, or the like, that comes on). We highly recommend "A Trip to the San Diego Zoo." It will be fun for you too (esp if, like us, you've never been there ; ) Enjoy!"
My son LOVES these!!!!

"My son is now 15 mon. old. He got the nursery rhymes dvd as a gift last christmas. We would play it for him everyday!! He just loves it. He will sit and watch the whole thing over and over again. Also an added plus is that i can then get my "chores" done around the house. He now trys to sing along and he dances to the music, it is very cute. Anytime he is upset or bored we put in the dvd and he gets soooo excited. He has watched it so many times i am worried it might stop working, then we would be in real trouble, haha. Anyway great learning tool for babies of all ages!!!"
