Editorial Reviews

Color is an essential characteristic of the amazing world that surrounds children. BABY VAN GOGH(TM) is an enriching new approach to learning colors through the context of paintings by Van Gogh. This video follows the antics of Vincent Van Goat, the art-loving puppet, as he creates six masterpieces, each dedicated to a particular color. During Vincent's creative process you and your child can explore the way colors make us feel, see the presence of colors in familiar objects, and discover that paintings are combinations of many colors. This child-friendly excursion into the world of color is accented in classical music of the period by Bizet, Mussorgsky, Offenbach, Rossini, Satie, Strauss and Tchaikovsky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another 'hit' for Baby Einstein Company September 12, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
We have all of the video products of the Baby Einstein Company. This video is more similar in format to Baby Shakespeare than the Baby Mozart / Baby Bach videos. Nevertheless, I would say that Baby Van Gogh is a better attention-getter and -holder than Baby Shakespeare. The visuals are much more professional and entertaining - the main content being color and art, as opposed to poetry readings.
If you are new to the Baby Einstein Company's products, I highly recommend them over the products of the competing companies (we have a VERY extensive childern's video library). The live-action visuals are far more engaging to infants and toddlers than the computer graphics and animation of other videos. In this respect (visually), Baby Van Gogh is even more dynamic than some of the earlier Baby Einstein productions - and certainly has a bit higher production quality. For babies under 6 months, however, I would recommend Baby Mozart as the best 'starter' in the series.
As with Baby Mozart, Baby Bach and Baby Einstein, my daughter (now almost nine months) cannot get enough of this video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in Baby Einstein line so far! August 22, 2002
We have a number of the Baby Einstein videos in our home, but Baby Van Gogh is our hands-down favorite. There are a number of segments on each of the basic colors, showing toys and nature photography that feature those colors. There are children also illustrating the colors (a little girl holding a lemon, boys holding a blue umbrella, etc.). Some of the other Baby Einstein videos feature only girls in live-action shots, but Baby Van Gogh has an even mix of boys and girls. I doubt my son really cares one way or the other, but I liked that aspect. The music featured in this video/DVD is also impressive. There are selections from some classical favorites like the William Tell Overture or Bolero. It's nice to have some variety, as opposed to an entire video of Bach or Mozart. Another thing that impressed me about this video is the artwork they use to further illustrate certain colors. For each color, they have a different painting by Van Gogh (Starry Night for blue, Sunflowers for Orange, and so on). This video brings together so many different aspects and blends them together seamlessly: art, nature, music. At the end of the video, there is also a segment that details the toys shown throughout the program and their manufacturer. So in case you're impressed with any of the items featured, you can buy them for yourself. Truly, this video more than any other provides a complete "Baby Einstein" experience. It's sure to be a favorite in any home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for infants! July 30, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
As one who strongly supports reading to children, I was a "little" anti-TV for my youngster, until watching THIS video. Julie Aigner-Clark is a genius! Her innovative products, exceptionally creative, are designed to entertain children while they learn. "Baby Van Gogh," is no exception. With an imaginative approach, this instantly engaging video teaches colors through cleverly written text, and real world objects, while stimulating auditory senses with classically arranged musical pieces. My son was immediately mesmerized from the first viewing, two-months old, and remains fascinated to this day, now fourteen months old.
I heard about Baby Einstein products from friends, but did not become interested until I learned of the company's dedication to providing financial support to MANY children's charities such as the Autism Society of America, Ronald McDonald House, The Eden Institute, a leading school for educating autistic children, and a host of other organizations committed to children with special needs. I now own several Baby Einstein videos and most of the companion books - they are excellent educational tools.
Additional recommendations - "Baby Shakespeare," "Baby Mozart," "Baby Dolittle Neighborhood Animals," also, Richard Scarry's "BEST" videos are excellent for children 1 year and up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another toddler magnet ! December 19, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The videos of the Baby Einstein company have an effect on our 20-month old like no other (and this has been the case since he was 10-months old). He greets the puppets like old friends and is enraptured by the sights and sounds. I sense that part of the series' attraction is the simplicity of the visuals: bare backgrounds and one or two toys and puppets. These "toy tableaus" are interspersed with some lush nature photography in this video, but these segments are only at the beginning and the end. The music's instrumentation is pared down as well. For the very young it seems that a lot of videos ostensibly produced for them are too busy and too noisy.
As far as Baby Van Gogh in particular, it really has a lot of wonderful qualities. The idea of dividing it into "chapters" based on individual colors is great. Our child gets a whole color "experience", seeing it in toys,puppets, live action photos and of course the Van Gogh paintings (several of which were unfamiliar to me). The music is mostly rousing and danceable. The only annoying part (at least to this parent) are the space-agy music breaks between chapters. At least these are short.
Each color features a poem written and read by the filmaker Julie Clark. These emphasize the emotions of each color and are enjoyable--although "when I am blue I put some happy in my stew" irks me every time I hear it. This video is closest in spirit to Baby Shakespeare and would be an excellent follow-up to it. If I were intending to produce a toddler's video I would spend hours and hours studying the products of this company. They really have the touch.
