Baby Einstein Refunds

Well, apparently there are people out there who actually believed that putting your child in front of the TV can make them smarter??

Don’t get me wrong, I own some of the Baby Einstein DVD’s, and Collin likes to watch them occasionally, but I never actually thought that sitting him in front of the TV would make him smarter. If however, you did feel misled you can get a refund for the videos that you purchased ($15.99 each for up to 4 videos). You can find out more info on the debate here: http://blogs.wsj.com/juggle/2009/10/26/baby-einstein-refund-and-the-allure-of-the-digital-babysitter/

We however, will be keeping our DVDs and taking them for what they are – a cartoon like any other…good for a few minutes of entertainment, but not a quick & easy way to a smarter baby!

I know! Can you believe all of the hoopla about that? Ridiculous...The DVDs should be called "The 'Quick Take a Shower Because He Will Be Entertained for 15-30 Solid Minutes' DVD"...
