are the bells & whistles a bit too much?, November 29, 2005

This review is from: Baby Einstein – On the Go – Riding, Sailing and Soaring (DVD)

my son is 18 months old and has just been allowed to start watching the baby einstein videos–he loves neighborhood animals and world animals and asks for them daily (we watch either “ducks!” or “growls!” once a day). after a trip on an airplane over thanksgiving, we decided to get On The Go for him to mix it up a little…

there are indeed good things about this video, but these good things are also encased in bad:

1. lots of different vehicles–probably too many different ones, in fact…do we need both a ‘sailBOARD’ AND a ‘sailBOAT’ in the same segment?

2. loads of BRIGHT colors–but this video has more computer images than ‘real life’ puppets…the opening segment with the raccoon driving the car over the bright green CG road is a bit much and feels like something from an austin powers movie

3. the music in this video has an eerie/music box quality to parts of it–the music that accompanies the spinning wheel (which has a car, a plane, a boat and a train on it) is very mellow and tinkly and then the same tune is repeated at various times throughout the video…yes, it’s a classical tune BUT it’s a watered down, synthesizer version and that just doesn’t cut it.

4. lots of repetition–i.e., the opening sequence features an eye-level shot of a boy riding in a toy car that’s pushed by a girl…you see this same footage about 5 minutes later in the ‘on the land’ segment.

overall, this is a decent dvd (i’m not going to bash it for all of the frontloaded garbage that you have to fast-forward through to get to the real dvd…that’s too easy–but suffice it to say it is a pain)–the train segment is great and the vehicles are pretty cool (there are tons of shots of various ones, too)…unlike Neighborhood Animals or World Animals, my son did not want to watch this one straight through–and to me, that’s a good thing.

Fantastic toddler entertainment!, November 3, 2005
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Baby Einstein – On the Go – Riding, Sailing and Soaring (DVD)

I am so impressed that Disney could come up with a video that was better than Baby McDonald which WAS my daughter’s all time favorite, but she now has a new Baby Einstein that she loves just a little bit more!!! She was literally sitting on the edge of her chair while she watched Baby On the Go while alternately getting up and flying like a plane or make choo-choo noises or singing the verses she knows of Wheels on the Bus. I was surprised by how much she interacted versus some of the kid’s shows were she just glazes over. So, not only is this entertaining, it is a great learning tool.

We have been incredibly impressed with the recent Baby Einstein videos that have come out in the past couple of years, and only let our daughter watch television once or twice a week. That said, the only thing she ever wants to watch is Baby McDonald, Baby Galileo, Baby Noah and now, Baby On the Go. I would recommend this to any and all moms, and in fact just bought two more as gifts. Well done, Disney!

My 17 month old son can’t get enough of this DVD! From the first moment it was on, he was hooked. He now picks up the case and brings that one to me when he’s chosing a movie. The puppets and the Wheels on the Bus segments are his favorite. Nothing stops an attack of the grumps like this one.
