Parent Bloggers recently sent me the That Baby DVD to review. The DVD is a collection of soft rock songs with calming, slow-moving video overlays. Segments slowly fade into each other, avoiding jarring transitions. The DVD also uses a nice technique, presenting a gallery of photos that one by one come to life, giving young children a chance to process the change. This is a nice alternative to the faster-paced videos and TV shows being produced for little ones.
To see what I mean, just click here for their video.
Widget and I enjoyed watching this together. It was indeed calming and provided a nice break in the day. We will definitely watch it again, and I’ll show it to Little Bear when he’s two too. I’m generally not a fan of TV and DVDs for babies and kids under 2 (and the AAP isn’t either), but, for kids who are exposed to media, this is a nice alternative to what’s out there.
That Baby DVD is produced by parents, which explains their no-questions-asked DVD and CD lifetime replacement policy, guarantee, and easy ordering setup. There’s even a 20% off coupon for readers of these Parent Bloggers Network reviews — just use the code “PBN” when you order from the company.
