Baby Einstein Marathon - Baby Einstein and Baby Genius

Tonight, another of my now-infamous investigations. I decided to take a look at "Baby Einstein" a video program that according to Wikipedia is ... popular with many parents who desire to provide an early boost to their children's cognitive development, products of this sort find little support among experts in the field of early childhood education, who emphasize the crucial role of 'hands-on', experiential learning through exploration and manipulation of the child's physical environment. The question is are parents buying a product that is a time-saving substitution for spending quality time with their little bundle of joy? Do some parents feel that trapping their child in some kind of fancy restraint and forcing them to watch programmed television put them on the path to genius? Tne name "Baby Einstein" would certainly imply that it imparts some intellectual gift...let's find out.
