Our copy was the Baby Mozart edition (Experience). As soon as I started the DVD, both my girls were instantly interested in watching the 22-minute show. The bright colors, music and fun puppets were exciting and upbeat, not to mention the soothing music! Maggie loves anything to do with music and I caught her a few times dancing around the room to the songs.
I was thrilled to see that the picture books included real-world photos/images. As a special needs mom, I’m in the learning process of what toys/tools are recommended in helping my Molly. Her therapists and the local Down Syndrome educators have stressed that these type of picture books are a fantastic way for her to learn. Even though Molly is just a few months old, I’ve already began showing her the book and talking to her about the pictures. It’s never to early to start learning!
Overall, the new Baby Einstein Discovery Packs are a great way to add some fun and education into a child’s day. (Plus, it’s a nice time for mommy to take a break!) On the Carrie with Children scale of approval, the Discovery Packs gets an A. My girls enjoyed all aspects of the pack. Although, mine was complimentary, the packs are reasonably priced at $19.99. I think that’s a great deal considering three separate activities are included in it.
