Movie Reviews

This is a really fun intro to classical music!
M. Christensen | Orem, UT United States | 11/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this on a whim at Costco. I needed something to occupy my 2 year old while I did her hair. This 3 pack was far better than I expected it would be! We like it even better than the Baby Einstein videos. A nice feature is the menu selection (which Baby Einstein doesn't have) so we can just watch a couple of the songs each day while fixing her hair. ALL of my kids actually enjoy watching this (my oldest is 11), although perhaps not as much as the 4 & 2 year old.

We like the dance and music shows best. The art show puts animated characters into classical art, but often you don't look at the actual art very much. For example, there are cute creatures in a tree, but then Van Gogh's Starry Night is flashed on the screen at the very end. There are animated frogs that jump around in Monet's lilypad picture, but you mostly see the frogs, not the art. That said, I realize this is for babies, not an intensive intro to art. I think the kids will recognize the pictures later as ones they've seen before. The animations are cute, but not too cheesy as another reviewer thought. Plus all of the dvds have good music (mostly classical) for each scene.

The kids go around the house humming classical music. So if that's a bad thing, don't get these dvds. Frankly, I think you could do a lot worse as far as kid's dvds go!

My one complaint is that the baby voice they have to announce each selection is often hard to understand. My 2 year old repeats each one, but she usually says it wrong because the baby/toddler doesn't pronounce it very well."
MUCH better than Baby Einstein!

"I was all about the Baby Einstein series until I saw HBO's Classical Baby series - it's SO much better! Why?

1.The music is the real deal, not a "baby" version. In addition to a ton of classical music, there's also Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Mambo, etc.

2. The animation is really cool! My husband is an artisit & he loves Classical Baby - he refuses to put on Baby Einstein when he's home.

3. It's WAY cheaper! I spent $20 dollars for THREE videos instead of $45-60 for three Baby Einstein.

4. Besides music, it also has famous art & dance

5. It's a lot more interesting for parents!

Just my little plug. I stopped buying any more Baby Mozart, Baby Bach or Baby Beethoven & now give Classical Baby to my pregnant friends!

Although, when it's time to start teaching words & other ideas, I guess I'll have to go back to Baby Einstein - unless HBO comes up with some more in the series!"
Great for infants and their parents too

"My husband and I love this show...and we are fairly certain that our 3 month old daughter does too. In fact, I am planning to take her to her first opera Gianni Schicchi by Puccini thanks to the "Cow Song"...she loves it that much.
I was one of those parents who was dead- set against their baby watching television but when you become a parent any distraction that can give you some kind of break is VERY NECESSARY. With HBO's classical baby, I have the guilty pleasure of entertaining my infant with slow moving, brightly colored images which is great for her eye development without the worry of seizures while exposing her to the arts at the same time. And it doesn't hurt that I can finally get to those dishes now or a take a breather also its great for putting them to sleep too. I...ahem (lol) we love it and anyone who ads this dvd to their collection will too."
Please don't believe the bad review!

"One individual indicated that this DVD was "atrocious". You have to remember that this DVD is geared for very young children. My 10 month old calms down and is incredibly engaged with this DVD. My three year old likes to watch it as well. Young children need to experience music in this format. They can't sit through an entire performance and are often not allowed in the symphony before age five. This is a perfect introduction to music and can help children imagine and explore beyond the music. Demonstrating the art and dance involves all the senses. These DVD's are very well done and the animation is very good. Again, the animation can't be overdone. For a baby the animation must be slower and less defined or it would simply overwhelm. I find these delightful and calming to watch as well! The bad reviewer also asserts that because the DVD's are entitled "Classical Baby" that individuals who purchase them know nothing about music. Trust me, my husband and I know music!"
