This movie and its companions (The Music Show and The Dance Show) are truly excellent! I picked this up by chance at a consignment sale, then found the others at a Movie Stop store. What a great purchase! As other reviewers have noted, the music is real -- performed by reputable orchestras, and the visuals are captivating for kids and adults alike. I often found myself entranced by the colors and shapes on the screen, which perfectly matched the gorgeous musical arrangements. As my first son grew older, he came to identify with the baby "host," so we were able to enjoy these for quite a while. I gave my set to a friend before her first child was born. I only hope they enjoy them as much as we did!
My twins are enthralled!

"I am a former first grade teacher and educational software designer/developer so I have some experience with educational media. We have all three in the set but this is the only one we have watched so far. I only have one complaint about this and that is the use of the baby voice to introduce each section. It sounds cute but some words are either mispronounced or difficult to understand. I know it's all part of the theme but a "cleaner" voice would make it perfect. With that said, I love this as much as my 26 month old twin boys do. It is visually compelling and the musical selections are very nice. I will recommend this to friends."

"If your baby is going to own one DVD collection, this should be it. We have all of the competitors, but once we bought this colection, it is all we watch. It s beautiful, clever, and educational (both for parents and baby). The music is fabulous as well, no omre of that pretend-classical music (Baby Einstein and friends...), this is the real thing! I will buy it for every baby shower and birthday party from now on!"
We Love It

"We caught Classical Baby: The Art Show on HBO and my son who was 7 months old at the time was mesmorised by it. The music is beautiful and the visuals are simple and eye catching. I studied art history and am impressed by the unique way of introducing fine art to an infant. My son still loves it now at 15 months and has learned to clap with the characters and he dances when the jazz song comes on. Even my husband enjoys watching it...over and over and over. We have The music show and the dance show too, but the Art Show is our favorite."
