Not particularly satisfied with any Baby Einstein program.

Cute, but has some flaws

"We are definitely a Baby Einstein household. I received the first 11 DVDs as a baby gift from a *very* generous friend. My daughter starting watching them as early as seven weeks old. They held her attention even at that point. She likes some better than others (Baby Beethoven and Baby Neptune are favorites). I picked up this latest one when I was Christmas shopping. We watched it this morning for the first time. I'd definitely say it's more in the style of the older videos... less video footage and more "toys in motion" kind of stuff. She seemed to enjoy it and it definitely kept her attention (she never took her eyes away from the TV). My major complaint is that for a DVD that's supposed to be an introduction to numbers, only introducing the numbers 1-5 seems a little silly. Even Sesame Street goes up to 20. The box says that "Numbers Nursery" is intended for 1 year and up. I'd say it seems more something for even earlier than that. My daughter is now 6 months old and it's about perfect for her. If they wanted it to have appeal to a later age range (up to 2-3 years for example) they needed to include a lot more than the number 1-5. Overall though it's still an enjoyable addition to our Baby Einstein collection."
Love the Learning...Nice New Twist for Baby Einstein

"I'm a big fan of Baby Einstein videos for the most part. We own most of them and have watched them countless times. My daughter (now 20 months) has lost interest in them now. She was most drawn to them from 8-15 months I think. But I was thrilled to see this one come out and got it thinking it would be more "educational" than the others seem to be. I was right. I really like how this one goes through the numbers, counting, sequence, etc. The puppets, music, objects, format just seems to make more sense than some of the other more "out there" ones. Best of all, my daughter loved it and quickly learned to count from 1-5. My only regret was that 5-10 wasn't out (and still isn't)! I'd also love to see an A-Z one! The other new one Baby McDonald is pretty good and slightly different than the "traditional" format too. My daughter asked for "mcdonalds" almost every day for a month after we first got it!And like another reviewer said, be sure to check out the other choices on the DVD, especially if your child seems bored with just the video. You can find lots of other learning/fun things on each one too!"
A Welcome Return to Form

"Now THIS is more like it!This DVD clearly illustrates the numbers one to five, in a clear, fun format, with music, great visuals, and logical format. The graphics are simple and uncluttered, the toys are new, and the puppets are not doing the same things over and over again.It teaches not only counting, but also reading, and this is the first time in the series that the bonus material is as good as, or better than, the main feature.The main feature runs nearly 30 minutes, exactly as stated on the box, and the bonus material doubles the fun. An essential Baby Einstein DVD to jump start your child."
The stuff that makes Baby Einstein so great!!!

"My 15-month-old daughter LOVES this one and it is certainly educational. Perhaps Disney's influence on the series had made the previous few videos more slick with cartoon characters, complex puppets and corny songs (i.e., Baby Neptune, Galileo and Newton). But this video goes back to more simplistic and magical style of the first videos. I am happy to see that Julie Clark, or someone at the Baby Einstein Company, has realized that there was no need to change the format!!"
Hooray for the Tiger Tape!

"Like many parents, we own all of the Baby Einstein videos. Baby Bach and Baby Einstein are the only two my kids never enjoyed. Numbers Nursery is another HIT! Disney has finally been smart enough to go back to Julie Aigner-Clark's original Einstein concept. What made Baby Einstein so special in the first place was that it was so simple. Babies don't need special effects and computer-based graphics - such as in Baby Newton - ugh! Both my 11-month old daughter and 2 1/2 year old son love this tape. Yes, it would be nice if it went higher than five, but the point of the tape is not to teach your children how to count. That's your job. It's educational entertainment, or so I like to think. If your kids love Baby Einstein as much as I do, they are going to love Numbers Nursery."
