Baby PRODIGY Review and Giveaway

I was recently given the opportunity to watch and review 3 brand new Baby Prodigy DVDs. All three are new releases and can be found at Toys R Us.

The first one that we watched was Baby Pre-School. It focuses on colors, shapes and games in a magical way. Jack was an instant fan of Dookie and Dottie Duck. They are the 2 main characters of the show; very cute puppets that definitely held Jack's attention. Throughout the show soothing music plays in the background of each scene and there are interludes between different sets that have fun, brightly colored geometric shapes floating across the screen. It was very mesmerizing and even received a few oohhhs and aahhhs from my little guy.


We also watched the Baby's First Words video a few times. The vocabulary words that are taught in this video are introduced using colorful animation and music. I appreciated the simplicity of the series. There wasn't any loud or excessive noise and I was pleasantly surprised every time I turned it on that Jack sat through the entire show. By the 3rd viewing he was interacting with the TV and repeating words too.

This series is dedicated to the development of our little ones minds. The products produced by Baby Prodigy have won over 20 National Awards. The final DVD that we viewed, 30 Minutes to a Quiet Baby, won the 2009 DVD of the Year Award from Creative Child Magazine.

I must confess to not actually watching the 3rd video, I popped it into the car DVD player and I must say it was so soothing that NO ONE, including my 2 older kids, spoke!! It caught every ones attention and had a very calming effect over the entire backseat! It was the quietest ride we have had in a long time!

All 3 videos are 30 minutes long which, for a busy mom, is just the right amount of time to get the dishes done and the laundry folded, so I highly recommend this series to anyone looking for a creatively stimulating DVD for their little ones.
The videos do have a recommended age and I must say even the one that was rated for 3 months and up was appropriate for my son, who is 2.


Check out these video and other Baby Prodigy products by visiting http://www.babyprodigy.com/ or your local Toys R Us.

All the opinions in this review are my own. I received each video at no cost in exchange for my honest comments about their products.
