Editorial Reviews

The beauty of this entry in the Baby Einstein catalog is its integration of puppets, toys, and live farm footage to help babies and toddlers make the connection between their plastic play sets and stuffed animals with images of a real farm. As always, the spoken language is minimal, omitting the pesky verbs and adjectives that would confuse the very young. The 30-minute main program is divided into sections: barns and equipment, animals, planting crops, and harvesting. Background music ranges from "Old MacDonald" to Schumann, and DVD extras include a 6-minute puppet show and visual "discovery cards" identifying animals and farm paraphernalia with a single word. (Ages 6 months to 3 years) --Kimberly Heinrichs

5.0 out of 5 stars Old McDonald Had a Video August 31, 2006
Baby MacDonald: A Day on the Farm is a multiple award-winning DVD that's a fun-filled introduction to the sights and sounds of a farm. Featuring live-action images of farms and farm animals interspersed with engaging visuals of puppets, children, toys, and real-world objects, it combines traditional nursery rhymes with the classical music of Schubert, Schumann and Strauss. This DVD has a calming effect on your baby while stimulating their early verbal skills. It's appropriate for introduction to baby around the age of 9 months but will continue to entertain through their second year.

Most of the videos in the Baby Einstein series are designed as `video board books' for your baby and offer you the opportunity to interact with your child in the same way you do with books as well as act as a distraction for that deeply needed parental bathroom break. Most of the DVDs have the option to "play" or "repeat play" and are about 20-30 minutes in length -- the repetition being very stimulating and comforting to the younger set.

While I don't think viewing Baby Einstein DVDs will make my infant "smarter" she sure does enjoy them! They give me a great way to interact with her as well as a few minutes here and there to get a few things done around the house. Their ability to calm her when she's fussy is already legendary in our household.

Here is information on all the current 21 Baby Einstein DVDs including suggested times to introduce them to your little one. This information IS NOT available with the DVD sets but I gleaned it from several sources for my own use. You may like to print this out for future reference.

Note: All the Baby Einstein DVDs are "region 1" which means they only play on machines in the U.S. and Canada.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ee-eye Ee-eye Wonderful! March 1, 2005
This is one of my top five DVD's in the Einstein series. It has an absolutely dreamy, breathtaking, peter-pan fly-over of a farm that goes on forever. Fantastic shots of cows, old farmhouses, and the requisite sing along that inspires my babies to harmonize. It's a guilty pleasure that I love to watch just as much as my three kids. God Bless Julie Clark for this series. I hope she got rich off of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rated Ages 6 months to 24 months April 14, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The good things about this DVD are:
1. The animals
2. The farm scenes, especially the ones that show the various methods of ploughing the fields.
3. The puppet skits don't repeat the same thing over and over again.
4. The Old MacDonald song
5. The song set to the Farmer in the Dell tune.
6. The pigs sliding into the mud puddle.
7. Has some good extras and not just flash cards and toy lists.
The not-so-good things about this DVD:
1. Too much of the music is slow, when it should be upbeat. Why plough to a lullaby?
2. Younger children like it, but it's not easy adult viewing. This DVD puts me to sleep.
3. Some of the content is for babies, some for toddlers, but as a whole it doesn't hold the interest over 24 months.
My son is now too old for the Baby Einstein series, and it's time to move on. It's been a great three years, and definitely essential viewing for children.
Thank you Baby Einstein, and goodbye.

By B. Rice
We purchased Baby McDonald for our 14 month old son. The movie it filled with farm animals, tractors, singing and puppet shows. We love it. Our son was repeating the animal sounds, laughing at the puppet shows, dancing to the music and singing E-I-E-I-O. He loves going to Grandpa's farm but that is 2 1/2 hours away so this a great substitute. We have all of the Baby Einstein movie, they're all great but I think we may have found a new favorite. A must have for kids who love animals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby Kendall 9 months old loves the farm. October 17, 2004
Our daughter is a very active child and we have found it trying at times to settle her before bed. We had been advised to try controlled crying but it seemed we were fighting a loosing battle. One screaming night I convinced my wife to put on Baby Einstein McDonalds Farm. Within minutes of putting the disc on Kendall had started to settle down and watch the movie. She started by standing up in her cot, then sat down, then layed down and fell asleep still watching it. Now when we put her to be she will stand in her cot and yell till we put on McDonalds Farm when she then sits down and ends up falling asleep within 15 minutes. She adores the puppets and music and you can see she is genuinely captivated with the mixture of sight and sound. I would recommend this product to anyone with an active child since it has proven so helpful for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and funny! September 14, 2004
My daughter (20 months old)LOVES this video(Baby MacDonald). Just so that I don't have to go through and write more reviews, she also loves and I mean LOVES, Baby Da Vinci,Numbers Nursery,Baby Shakespeare,Neighborhood Animals, and Baby Van Gogh. Shealso enjoyed the Santa video. If you have a smaller baby, I'd recommend Baby Mozart, Baby Beethoven, and Baby Neptune( my daughter still watches these too. Baby Galileo is one that she'll watch, but the characters are a little different. The only Baby Einstein video that I thought was a complete waste of money was the language nursery. As an infant and a toddler, my daughter lost all intrest immediately.

I have recommended these to everyone that I come in contact with that has a baby (of any age). They are awesome!

The DVD does not work, it was scratched up when I received it. The scratch is very visible, I didn't think it would play when I saw the CD, and it didn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute and Informative for little ones
This is a cute video. I even kind-of enjoy watching it myself. I exposes kids to things they may not otherwise come in contact with at their young age.
