Baby Einstein Discovery Kits - Review

We've been watching Baby Einstein since my daughter was born. I had first learned about the DVD series a few years back when I was a babysitter and I was really impressed with how they presented music, colors, animals, and all kinds of other learning experiences for very young children. I also found it very interesting with how well these DVD's held the baby's attention.

Baby Einstein has now taken the learning experience a step further with their introduction of the Discovery Kits.

Baby Einstein, an award-winning leader of infant products, 
unveils Baby Einstein Discovery Kits, an innovative new interactive experience 
to help parents introduce babies to the beautiful music, nature and animals for which the 
company’s products are known.  The first six Discovery Kits in the new collection each feature a 
DVD, a music CD and a picture book or Discovery Cards, and with each element 
complementing the others, the new kits give parents another way to interact with their babies. 

I received the Wild Animal Safari Discovery Kit for review. The kit contains a DVD, CD, and animal discovery cards. This has been a hit in my house! 

We began by watching the DVD that exposed my daughter to real animals, puppets, and children while also playing great music throughout.  We then took out the discovery cards and this was an amazing experience. I was truly impressed by how many animals my daughter recognized as she imitated their sounds after just looking at the picture. I was also impressed that she was making the connection between the real animal pictured on the card and some of her stuffed animals. I would show her the picture of the monkey and she ran over and got her Curious George stuffed animal. We had a great time interacting together and I told her some of the fun facts that are also listed on the card. I think these cards will be popular with her for years to come!

By them time we were done playing and interacting it was nap time. So I put the CD on for her while she napped. I think it was a wonderful experience for both of us!

I highly recommend that you check out this kit and the others available in this series. You can check it out on the Baby Einstein website for more information.
