You know you’re a mom when you look for the new releases……new releases for your kiddos, not for your next dinner and a movie night.
Baby Einstein World Music is a brand new musical adventure starring Jane the Monkey and other puppet friends. She travels around the world with her drum, making music with native instruments on each continent. It debuts March 31 and has already become a new favorite at my house.
I’ve always been a Baby E fan, and find some of the details they include make me smile (Van Gogh the Goat with the bandaged ear, for example). This DVD is no exception–the puppets are dressed up in native costumes from around the world. Montessori families will also get a kick out of the map used through out the movie–it is a world map color coded like the one used in Montessori classrooms. MAM was most excited to see the familiar and beloved World Map on the television screen.
This DVD also has several features that will come in handy as Jr. grows. There is a “grow with me” option, that includes more spoken language. There is a “select a scene” feature enables you to pick a short segment to watch. There is also an option to play just the puppet shows and other features. I am excited to see each of these features–they are all things I wished were present when MAM was watching the Baby Einstein DVDs in heavy rotation.
As a compliment to the World Music DVD, the World Music CD showcases instruments from around the world in that distinctive Baby Einstein sound. The light, airy sounds truly are music to baby’s ears. Case in point: real bagpipes make Jr. cry, Baby Einstein bagpipes do not. Like the other Baby Einstein CDs in our collection, the music catches Jr’s attention and relaxes him. Baby Einstein World Music is definitely one to check out!
