We are big fans of all things Baby Einstein here on The Avenue, so when I heard that they were releasing a new product called Baby Einstein Discovery Kits I was very excited to review the Wild Animal Safari kit with TC.
Each Discovery Kit features 3 different products in one package: a DVD, a CD, and a book or set of flash cards, they also come with a parent's guide to offer suggestions on how parents can use the discovery kits to interact with their babies. There are 3 different levels of Discovery Kits that grow with your baby:
Level 1: Experience
• Baby Beethoven™ Discovery Kit includes a DVD, Book, Music CD and Parents’ Guide.
Parent and child will listen to the joyous sounds and cherished works of Beethoven. See how music celebrates the sounds of different instruments. Together, they will experience a world of enchanting sights and sounds and make new discoveries with Baby Beethoven.
• Baby Mozart™ Discovery Kit includes a DVD, Book, Music CD and Parents’ Guide.
Parent and child will discover the joy of classical music together and listen to Mozart’s popular works – including “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” – delightfully reorchestrated for little ears. They’ll look at real-life images and enchanting puppet shows bringing a symphony of sights and sounds together as they share new discoveries with Baby Mozart.
Level 2: Explore
• Wild Animal Safari Discovery Kit includes a DVD, Discovery Cards, Music CD and Parents’ Guide.
Parents can take their little explorer on an exotic musical expedition to meet wild animals from across the globe. Together, they’ll journey to the jungle, savanna, desert and forest on a wild, wonderful voyage of discovery with Wild Animal Safari.
• Animals Around Me Discovery Kit includes a DVD, Discovery Cards, Music CD and Parents’ Guide.
Parent and child set off on a fun-filled “field trip” to discover animals found at the park, on the farm, and in their own backyard – whether furry or feathered, winged or wiggly, bumpy or cuddly, they’ll explore the Animals Around Me.
Level 3: Expression
• World of Colors Discovery Kit includes a DVD, Book, Music CD and Parents’ Guide.
Parent and child share a rainbow of sights and sounds and discover the wonders of color together! They’ll join puppet host “Vincent Van Goat” as he creates six Van Gogh masterpieces exploring red, green, blue, yellow, orange and purple with World of Colors.
• World of Words Discovery Kit includes a DVD, Book, Music CD and Parents’ Guide.
Parent and child join playful puppet host Bard the Dragon on an exciting adventure using everyday words, such as flower, cat, and moon, plus beautiful scenery from nature with World of Words.
These new kits will replace the current Baby Einstein DVDs and all of the DVDs in the kits are either completely new, or have been updated and enhanced. The overall Discovery Kit experience is completely new. The first six Discovery Kits are available for purchase November 23, 2010 and three additional Discovery Kits will be available in early 2011.
TC loved the bright colors, the real life animals and the silly puppet shows. Not wanting to be left out, big brother TOF enjoyed holding up the flash cards and naming the animals for his baby brother. The flash cards have animal facts on the back which kept things more interesting for TOF and for me too. Did you know that a lion's roar is so loud it can be heard five miles away? Or that a tiger's stripes are like fingerprints? No two are alike!
TC, TOF and I really enjoyed the new Baby Einstein Wild Animal Safari Discovery Kit and give it three thumbs up.
