Celebration of Color

This is one of those videos that lets the parent decide whether to plop the child down in front the CRT babysitter in order to get some work done (which I'll confess we've done now and again...and it will work sometimes...) or to use the video to make learning fun.
Learning in this case is about colors: Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, Purple and Orange. We play with blue toys during the Blue segment, red toys during the Red segment and so on. It can be fun for the adult, too. Try making up words to go along with Ode To Joy, for instance...("Birdies, birdies, see the birdies! Birdies, birdies, love to fly...")
The video begins with a nifty fireworks display and a rousing rendition of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #3. Then, buckets of paint, either singly or in combination, are flung at the screen and shapes dance around to classical tunes by Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms (not the Lullaby!), more Bach and Boccherini.
Overall, I prefer the BabyScapes videos to the Baby Einstein ones. Our son gets more excited about the BabyScapes videos than he does the plethora of Baby Einstein DVDs we have. The music quality is better than what you'd hear on the Baby Einstein videos/DVDs, in my opinion, and the clean, organized presentation is just easier to watch. With most of the Baby Einstein DVDs I feel like "give me some toys and a video camera and I could do this - and better"; I respect the skill and imagination of the 3D graphic artists who put together the BabyScapes videos.
This video is now one of my number 1 baby shower gifts to give.

My 3 year old loves it even more than my 12 month old. The prequel is far more entertaining for a 1 year old. I'm sure in time, it will be adored by all in my home!Published on September 19, 2005 by TN Heather
