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.
there is no "subtitle" choice, so if your kid says "mommy, what is she saying?" you'll have a blank look on your face! they sound like fun lil' rhymes in diffrent languages but something called "Numi,Numi" in hebrew, is not gonna tell me what its about.
i kinda feel like a baby with NO clue on what i'm listening to....so unless you know all the languages listed and you know all the words (no sing-along option)...then pass on this!
*and like all the other reviews, baby einstein like the "classical" masters and galileo are GREAT...i got this dvd because my baby is advancing, so i was surprised HOW weak it is compared to the others!
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.
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.Read more ›
