My Baby’s a Genius

Did you know that Disney is offering refunds on Baby Einstein DVDs that were purchased between June 5, 2004 and September 4, 2009 to avoid a class-action lawsuit for “unfair and deceptive practices”?

If you thought plonking your child in front of a triangle whilst Mozart played in the background was going to improve their IQ, it’s possible you’re not worthy of a refund.  In saying that, babies are often captivated by the simplistic styles of the DVD’s and so I thought “why not just make one myself?”

 

My three year old can’t get enough of it.  What do you think?

    Hmm wouldn’t a lot of other children educational dvds fall under that category then?? :P Can you make a special edition for pop videos? My girl would love that heh

    Love this! As part of my work, I help out at mother’s groups, educating parents that in fact “plonking your child in front of a triangle…” will NOT make them a genius, and it would be far better for you to play and interact with your baby.

    I think most parents are on board these days, but you would be surprised (or maybe not) at the power of marketing.

    haha loved your video! I didn’t even buy those Einstein dvds when I was in Bali and they were a $1. So glad now! would have been an expensive trip just to get a refund.

    the horse whinny won me over.. almost identical to a babt Einstein.. People who think plonking their babies down to dvds will make them “smarter” obviously missed out on enough Mozart as kids themselves :P

    Loved it. Especially the part where the block like barely fit. Yeah, My kid would watch that all day. He’s no genius. But he is super smart!
