Unlike some videos which seem to have a frenetic MTV pace to them, 'Jazz Baby Jazz' offers a gentler pace, which I believe is more appropriate for young children. The video presents colorful animated graphics (animals, cars, bouncing balls, etc.) interspersed with live action footage of babies and toddlers playing with toys.

We've played this video in the background when our 10-month old is playing with his toys. He tends to look up at the TV periodically, and if he catches one of the clips of another child, it holds his attention for 10-20 seconds. Generally, though, he isn't too interested in the animated graphics. He'll look for a few seconds and then return to what he's doing. Some might think the video isn't so good if it can't hold his attention. But I argue the opposite. Any video that turns a kid into a glassy-eyed zombie who can't look away from the images should be destroyed. So I really appreciate the fact that this video offers something of a slower pace, that allows my child to watch for a little while, but then lets him get back to his business. (Of course, we rarely ever have the TV on--generally it's just for movies after the kid goes to bed--so perhaps he hasn't had time to be zombified.)

It's also nice that the images are accompanied by a hip jazzy soundtrack. I want my boy to be musical. Oh, sure--the Baby Mozart and Baby Bach and Baby Mike Oldfield and all the other classical selections are probably great for kids, but come on--let's have some variety! Jazz, baby.

First, I'm not a huge fan of jazz. However, since they were 8 months old, my twins love this video--from the music, the images, and the sounds. My son used to hurriedly toddle his way to the television as soon as he heard the introductory music. Even to this day, he will cry out with excitement when he sees it. The coloring and the sounds of movement seem to rivet my twins, who are almost 22 months old now.

A few commentaries compared this video to the Baby Einstein series. I found this video because none of the Baby Einstein videos captured my twins attention. The music just wasn't intriguing enough for the twins. As for criticizing the images as being poor quality--I disagree. It was simple and basic---which quite frankly is what little ones need as they can only focus on a few images at a time.

I highly recommend this video. While there is jazz music playing on occasion, there are enough sounds and simple images to intrigue little ones.

This is my triplets' favorite video! The pace is of the graphics is good for babies and toddlers and the music is enjoyable even for adults.

Music, puppets, and photography/art all wonderful. The colors captivating his little 10 month old senses. We used it on a road trip to reward him for having to sleep away from home for a couple nites. Just enough at times when his patience wore from being in the car too long. He loved it. Movie just 39 minutes---not too much stimulation. :)

I have a very active baby! She does not care for Baby Einstein DVDs, but LOVES Jazz Baby Jazz. Her eyes are glued. It is the greatest thing for helping me get dinner ready! Thank you!!

I wasn't too impressed at first, however my opinion doesn't matter. My baby loves this video! Thus, I do too. He sometimes squeals with delight when he sees the other children in the video. The music is catchy and upbeat. This has been a very handy a few times when he was really fussy and I needed help to calm him down. We watched part of it together and it distracted him nicely.

Our baby absolutely loves this. I wish there were more videos like this. It is simple enough to keep her attention for long periods of time. It doesn't have sing-along style music or characters with annoying voices. I can deal with the same jazz tune playing in the background while she plays.

My son has been watching Jazz Baby Jazz since he was a wee little one, about 8 months old, and still enjoys it at almost 4 years old (he doesn't know it as "Jazz Baby Jazz," he has called it "The Monkey Movie" since first seeing the cover). It is not as polished as the newer Baby Einstein videos but is pretty good quality and enjoyable to watch. For the price, I would recommend this to other parents.

My son loves this video. We got it for him around 14/15 months. He's now almost 20 months and still loves it. He watches pretty intently and dances to some of the music. There is little (if any) dialogue other than the names of the colors, lots of fun sounds and images of common objects/animals that littles can identify. My son especially loves to point out the fish during the underwater scene.

We are watching it right now! My 15-month-old son loves all the pictures and I like the music- better than some kids music that makes you wanna pull your hair out after hearing it over and over! The only thing lacking is the graphics, not that my son would notice, but overall happy with it.
