Product Description

ASIN: B00007J88T DESCRIPTION: From the beach to the bath -- a musical voyage!

Within a baby's first year of life, new experiences can transform what might otherwise seem to be ordinary events into exciting opportunities for imaginative play.

Overflowing with captivating undersea footage and live-action visuals of delightful puppet shows, toys, and happy children, this fun-filled exploration of "water, water everywhere" also features the Water Music of George Frideric Handel to accompany you and your little one on your own interactive voyage of discovery!

There's no denying a youngster's attraction to water, and the folks at Baby Einstein tap into that natural interest--and broaden it. They take babies and toddlers from bathtime to the beach, from tap water to waterfalls and geysers. A puppet octopus and duck serve as guides through clearly labeled sections: Ocean, Rivers and Lakes; Rain Drops and Puddles; Water at My House. A child speaks the title at the beginning and end of each unit, but those are the only words in this 24-minute "video board book." The rest of the sounds come courtesy of Handel, Telemann, Beethoven, and Johann Strauss. Both toy animals and real ones swim through the scenes and the footage of dolphins, sea turtles, and marina fish are fascinating enough that preschoolers won't mind sitting in with younger siblings. (Ages 1-3) --Kimberly Heinrichs

My final rating is what it is because there actually are worse ones in the series.

We always tell him "Water Water Everywhere!!"(like in the DVD) But I really feel happy that even if he is watching this one for 3 month he doesn't get bored.

This is my 16 month old daughter's first Baby Einstein video and she absolutely LOVES it!

I will be honest. Our son loves Baby Mozart, Baby Bach, and Baby Shakespeare. The music on them is delightful and the videography is great. The toys and objects are shot in such a way that they get a baby's and toddler's attention. But, I find that they are not as mesmerizing as the Barney, Elmo, etc. TV stuff is.
Now, for Baby Einstein. The concept is good, but in execution, it didn't work for our son. Listening to moms speak in a dozen languages bored our son. And the videography is not well done, so the images don't get a child's attention. This was the first tape in the series; the others are far better. We ended up consigning this tape. But, I am about to buy the new Baby Van Gogh, so I really do like the products from this company--just not this particular tape.

Okay...I must admit that my son is a Baby Einstein junkie! He was very fussy until he was three-months-old and Baby Bach was literally the only thing that saved my sanity on some days. Now that he is past the one-year milestone, he has the entire Baby Einstein library. He particularly loves the Baby Dolittle tapes and will watch them again and again.
We were happy to see a new title to add to our collection and waited patiently for the release date. I must say, I am a bit disappointed overall.
First, the video seems a lot shorter than the other ones. Maybe it's because I bought the DVD this time and am used to the "commercial" at the end of the tapes. My son insists on watching through to the "commercial" on the tapes, as even they hold his attention.
Second, the fast editing is more MTV than Baby Einstein. Our children have dwindling attention spans as it is. Disney's hands are ALL OVER this video. If you watch the Disney Channel, it's the same feeling. More substance and less flash would do this video good. Also, Baby Neptune lacks the panache of, say, Vincent Van Goat (Baby Van Gogh) or Jane (World Animals).
Last, it just didn't seem to hold my son's attention like other Baby Einstein titles. Starting with Baby Beethoven, the new voice at Disney seems to have disturbed the organic quality of the original tapes. To be honest, I miss Sierra and Aspen on this tape. It helped with the "from my house to yours" feel of previous titles. The puppets also seem to be lacking in this video. The interaction of the puppets with other puppets or the children is charming on previous videos.
On a positive note, I recommend the DVD for the repeat play feature if for nothing else.

I love Baby Einstein products, but I was very disappointed with this one & glad I was able to take it out of the library before buying it! We are a bilingual family with some knowledge of a number of other languages. Even tho' our son is only 5 months old - he cried through this entire volume. The pictures do not match the translations which can be very confusing for a child trying to actually catch on to a language. If this is just to hear other languages being spoken - I'd rather take a bus. The pictures aren't even the usual "eye catching" visuals & when counting is being done, it's not even in sync with the picture. We were really looking forward to this item as a learning tool, but will be looking for other audio/visual methods. Unfortunately, there is not much out there. Overall, this was a good concept, but got "lost in the translation"

Our 15-month-old son is fascinated by other Baby Einstein DVD's (particularly Baby Van Gogh and Baby Shakespeare), but this just doesn't hold his attention.
It's clear that different hands are at work on this title -- which followed the sale of the Baby Einstein company to Disney -- and that they don't necessarily understand how BE works. The music is as good as ever (thanks to the long-time personnel in the "Baby Einstein Orchestra"), but the visuals are a mess. Earlier titles would show a scene and stick with it for a while, and transition between similar scenes, for example, from one toy to another, or between different views of the same toy. This video madly intercuts between toys, nature footage, and pictures of children... completely missing the simpler approach of earlier titles. The puppet shows are more elaborate, but are they any more charming? No.
To its credit, it's not larded down with obnoxious and intrusive advertising like other Disney titles, but overall you'd still be better with the earlier titles that Julie Aigner-Clark and her people were directly involved in.

I was very disappointed with this tape. I own many others which incorporate music with pictures, but this tape did not make any sense. Since I (the parent) sit with my child while watching tv, the baby einstein company could at least match up the language with the picture. The languages seemed to pierce my eardrums like the volume was off between the music and voice. I didn't understand why there would be a poem being spoken with the background of three lines. It never held either my attention or my childs. I actually got restless waiting for my computer to print out the translation from the cd. I returned it the next day and bought neighborhood animals instead. It seems we do better with the other tapes that have music and animation. That keeps the interest of my child. Better luck next time I guess.
