Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released six Baby Einstein Discovery Kits. The first six Discovery Kits in the new collection each feature a DVD, a music CD and a picture book or Discovery Cards, and with each element complementing the others, the new kits give parents another way to interact with their babies.
Baby Einstein, an award-winning leader of infant products, today unveils Baby Einstein Discovery Kits, an innovative new interactive experience to help parents introduce babies to the beautiful music, nature and animals for which the company’s products are known. The first six Discovery Kits in the new collection each feature a DVD, a music CD and a picture book or Discovery Cards, and with each element complementing the others, the new kits give parents another way to interact with their babies.
“The Discovery Kits resulted from our ongoing discussions with parents who loved the concept of a single product that offered a variety of different ways to interact with their babies,” noted Susan McLain, vice president and general manager, The Baby Einstein Company. “We’re thrilled to offer this unique new experience for parent and child to share as they go through their busy days together.”
Representing a new path for the company as Baby Einstein continues to listen to and evolve with today’s parents, the Baby Einstein DVDs will now only be available at retail as part of the
Baby Einstein Discovery Kits.
The new Discovery Kits encourage parents to take what they and their little one have seen on screen, in the book or on the Discovery Cards, or listened to on the CD and apply it to baby’s everyday life. They were created to grow with babies and are organized in a way that offers three distinct levels of discovery:
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
