1.0 out of 5 stars Boooring April 14, 2009
I purchased this video hoping to find joyful music from the world: polkas, tango, mariachis, african music.
But you can't find any of those.
The dvd is a collage of images with music composed by the baby einstein musicians, which doesn't represent the Music of the world.
It is very boring. My children, who are the Baby Einstein biggest fans hardly look at it.
Dissapointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mellow World Music done the Baby Einstein way April 10, 2009
Get out your drums, shake your maracas and flip a rainstick. The Baby Einstein World Music DVD features songs and music from around the world in performed in the typical mellow, synthesized Baby Einstein fashion. Images from each of the seven continents and a variety of musical instruments accompany the music. Jane the jet setting monkey flies a plane over a spinning globe and takes babies and kids along for the journey. The monkey also stars in the silly puppet shows that break up the segments, each segment featuring a different continent. The DVD includes a few new play modes: "Grow with Me", "Select a Segment" and "Discovery Cards." The main feature runs 37 minutes.

We prefer viewing mode 2 over viewing mode 1. Intended for toddlers and kids, the "Grow With Me" viewing mode (#2) plays the images along with text and spoken language, instead of just visuals and music. Also, the kids really enjoy the DVD when I bring out some instruments for them to use while viewing. The instruments featured in the DVD are a wood flute, maracas, a rainstick, didgeridoo, djembe (drum), harp, and pipa (stringed instrument). My kids especially like watching the bonus Select a Segment: World Music Songs. Sung by children, the songs include "Shoo Fly", "Aloutte", "Arroz con Leche" and "Kogame, Kogame".

To be honest, I was expecting a little more lively variation of world music from Baby Einstein. The slower tempo segments (Asia, Antarctica) aren't as interesting for my kids as the upbeat ones. We are used to listening to Putumayo label music and would have liked to see Baby Einstein incorporate more energy in their musical selections this time around. I also wish the segments included more images of babies from around the world and fewer landscape/water shots. The DVD and CD are recommended if you want calming, soothing world music and have enjoyed previous Baby Einstein music products.

3.0 out of 5 stars My son likes it, I loathe it. December 26, 2011
As far as music goes, this is the WORST Baby Einstein DVD. Each section is centered around a 'continent', although even that should be applied loosely. N. America is dominated by a faux Native American music selection then by some faux Southwestern music too. Asia is centered around some loosely based Oriental music, even though Asia encompasses so much more in terms of music and culture. Antartica?!? Seriously. Europe portion is mostly some Celtic mumbo jumbo.

As a former Music Educator, this DVD's soundtrack just makes me cringe with how wrong the music selections are. My son though, is engaged throughout this collage of bad musical representational 'world' motifs. I guess he really likes the puppets acting out scenes in between.

What drives me batty is the song with real children at the end. They all look bored and like their parents are making sing and dance in the end video (my guess is they are the creators children, so I'm probably close with that one). My toddler can tell the kids aren't happy to be singing and dancing and he normally gets up and walks away at that point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't live without it! February 5, 2010
This is the one trick in our hat that NEVER fails. Our now almost a year daughter has been enjoying this dvd since about 6 months. She LOVES this! I don't let her watch alot of tv, but have tried a few other baby einstein dvds and barney, seseame street etc... Doesn't really care for any of it, but this one dvd. So she watches it a few times a week and never gets tired of it. The music is great...and generally very fun to watch. I do have to say that the typical baby einstein dvd is pretty boring. This is not. One of our best purchases!

Our grankids love this musical video. They learn so much from watching it: world geography, traditional music from all continents, various customs and how music can be a common theme for all of us to live together.Our grandkids become totally involved in this great presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daughter loves it! August 31, 2009
The Baby Einstein DVDs have been a great, before bed, treat for my 2 year old. She looks forward to watching her DVD as an end of day treat. They are also great when you have to get things done! World Music incorporates wonderful tunes and instruments that I didn't even the know the names or origins of. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! June 21, 2009
My son and I both love watching and listening to this DVD. While some of the backgrounds are a little annoying when it comes to contrast with the puppets, most of it is simply wonderful.
