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?

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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
