Soothing music for gentle play.
Baby Einstein presents Baby Mozart, an interactive program designed for parents who desire to engage in a variety of activities with their little ones.
Clocking in at 28 minutes, this presentation combines some of Mozart's most popular works with a huge selection of colorful images, moving objects, animals, and toys to capture your children's attention and give you a chance to discover new ways to interact with them.
Like most of the programs in this series, Baby Mozart is not designed to tell a consistent story, which obviously makes it hard to review in great detail. Instead, the show is supposed to stimulate your baby's brain and present all sorts of objects or sounds the way babies see or hear them in real life. Additionally, I hear classical music can also have a positive effect on a baby's mental development, which is definitely a good thing.
Other than that, there's just not much else to say about this. The selection of moving objects, toys, pictures, and sounds of animals and puppets supplies your child with light, harmless entertainment, making it easier to grab and keep their attention for almost half an hour. But again, parental interaction is encouraged throughout.
Technically, the Baby Mozart DVD looks good, boasting a clean full-frame transfer and a decent audio transfer. Considering the nature of the program and the targeted audience, the qualities or picture and sound do indeed not play a big role.
Because this program is part of a series of musical Baby Einstein DVDs, the special features are pretty much the same you'll find on every one of those discs. In "10 Years of Discovery," creator Julie Clark answers questions from fans of the show and quickly explains how she got the idea for the videos. In "Together Time Tips," she offers parents valuable information on how to use these DVDs to play with their babies.
"Activity Time" and "Puppet Shows" include several segments that look just like the main presentation, providing additional content parents can use to dance with the kids or encourage them to make their own music. The bonus material also includes a catalog of all the toys appearing in the main presentation.
If you're looking for new ways to engage in interactive activities with your loved ones, I recommend Baby Mozart.
