Lil’ J is a Baby Einstein: New Discovery Kits!

The first time I heard about Baby Einsteins I was a teenager and babysitting for a woman at my church. She asked me to play it if we were going to have the TV on.

I’m not sure if back then people thought these movies would make babies smarter or something, but the name sorta implies that at first.

I didn’t think I’d be one of “those moms” who experiments with baby DVDs with her child but here I am!

A friend of mine gave me her baby Einstein movies since her baby is older now and Lil’ J watched them for a little while on my computer screen. This was about a month ago. I put them away and didn’t think much else about them until I was sent these new Baby Einstein Discovery Kits to try!

These are cool because each kit is a different “level” with different things to experience. We got Level 1 “Experience”: Baby Mozart, which comes with a DVD, a CD with the tunes from the DVD and a book with some of the images from the movie. Level 2 “Explore”: Which also came with a DVD, a CD and flash cards. And Level 3 “Expression”: Which came with a DVD, a CD and book.

Each property of each kit coincides together so it’s like a continuous lesson.The second and third lessons are more advanced for Lil’ J to understand right now but she sure loves all the stuff! She likes the movies and actually gets “zoned in” to them, and now when we play the music in her room upstairs, or if I play it on my computer I can see her stop what she’s doing and sorta look around like “I know that song!”

Ok, so we were watching one of the movies yesterday and I had to take a quick video of her watching it so you can see how entertained she is by it. Her little face watches the penguins run back and forth on the screen, it’s cute!

You can see for a second she gets bored and looks away but just then the screen flashes and something else starts happening. It’s almost like it’s timed perfectly to her attention span.

What I like about these is it’s not just one of those “sit your kids in front of the TV and let this teach them” kind of things. The book and cards that go along with it make it fun to take the lesson away from the TV and have a little learning time together. I like to try to do this anyway with our own books and toys but this is a fun way to make learning with her well-rounded. Oh, and I love that it uses words in English, French and Spanish, so I’m learning too!

These are new and a neat gift idea for Christmas!

Everyone who comments on this post before next Friday December 3rd will be entered to win 3 Baby Einstein Discovery kits! Blog followers get an extra entry. will choose the winner. Good luck!

*I received a free sample of Baby Einstein’s Discovery Kit to test for this review and giveaway, which is part of a sponsored program through the BabyCenter Blog Network.”

I’ve been dying to try Baby Einstein stuff! Claire loves to watch the colors from Pixar movies and Disney cartoons – if she’s going to be watching tv, I want it to have substance.

those sound really good. I would love to try them. Hope I win.

That sounds awesome! I have the Baby Einstein Neptune baby gym for Shane, and he LOOOVED it when he was little enough to use it. I would love to see if he would watch baby einstien because he doesn’t have much interest in the tv right now.

Aimee Sue says:

I love Baby Einstein. I had a few of the videos with my son with my 8 year old son but passed them along as he got older. I would love to try these kits with my 10 month old daughter.

I had 1 baby einstein dvd that a certain 4 y/o of mine LOVED until she decided to color on it with pen and killed it. We would LOVE these for my (almost) 4 mth old or even 21 mth old!

I haven’t seen any of these dvd’s, my sister didn’t play them for either of her two, but I’ve heard great things about ’em! I’d love to play them fo rour lil’man who’s coming any day now.

Gina says:

I was skeptical like you before–Baby Einstein used to be (to me) for those moms who didn’t let their kids watch any tv unless it was this stuff which from what I remember then seemed like useless shapes floating on the screen set to classical music. Now I would use their stuff because the content seemed to have improved but the prices are still a tad high for me to buy them myself. I’d love the chance to win. Thanks!

klb says:

It’s funny you mention this today. This morning I was toying with the idea of purchasing baby einstein for my 6 month old daughter. So I played a few on youtube and she was mesmerized by it. So I might have to get the videos for her. I’d love to win one of the kits.

I love Baby Einstein! I have a couple of their classic DVDs and Emma loved them when she was a baby. She also really loves music now. I like that they play classical music in the background on these DVDs. 🙂

My daughter had terrible colic until she was 5 months old and there were two things that calmed her during crying jags when all else failed. A video for My United States of Whatever by someone named Brookers on YouTube and Baby Beethoven. If I didn’t have that DVD, I would have gone CRAZY!

Em says:

Let me just say, I love your blog! However…read the link I’ve attached. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children before the age of 2 don’t view TV. As a second grade teacher, I have noticed some serious problems with language development. We all need to make our own choices, it’s just good to be informed.


Quiana says:

Lil J’s side profile is so cute! She’s so intrigued!

allisa says:

I follow your blog! And I love how engrossed Miss J is in that book!

LiciaLee says:

Love it. SHe looks so happy reading. 😀

UAN says:

She looks like she’s really enjoying it. My son started talking quite clearly at 18 months. I didn’t use baby Einstein though but read to him a lot. I’m sure a programme like this will really teach her a lot

I’d love to try Baby Einstein with my baby.

I would love to be entered in this giveaway.

YUMMama says:

My got some of those for my niece to watch but she never developed an interest in them. I thought about trying them with Moo, but since she wasn’t all that interested in TV, I passed. I’d love to give them a go with baby number 2 though.

Amy Lynn says:

We love Baby Einsteins! My son started watching the dvd’s at 3 months, and since they have some for every stage, he was watching them until he was about 15 months old! He loved them and I cant wait until this new baby can watch them too!!

Courtney says:

My daughter loves all the Baby Einstein stuff we already have, so I’d be curious to try out the kits!

Nikki says:

I really like that it’s more than just a DVD. I don’t think a DVD alone is enough to make any lessons sink in. There really does have to be other components for it to be more than just a distraction for the kids. I’m so glad that Baby Einstein has come up with a new way to engage children in early learning.

Thank you for the great giveaway please count me in 🙂

I would love to have this. This is actually one of the things that was on my list for my son before the money belt got a little tight. I did want to mention a brighter background to your blog would make it more appealing. Hope you take no offense to me saying that , you write and describe so well, that it is hardly that noticeable, just really bright.
