Baby Galileo

We received a Baby Einstein DVD as a gift, entitled "Baby Galileo". I assumed it was created with the "cram info into young children" mentality, which I believe feeds off parental fears of having unsuccessful or stupid children. I don't really respect that - I saw some very young children at my former music school who were being pushed to extremes by their parents - and for whose pleasure? Since Rebecca is now inquisitive and I was curious, we watched about half of it.
Frankly, it was adorable.
It is very basic, with little spoken, but beautiful or interesting images appear, accompanied by well-loved classical music. Baby Galileo is a little kangaroo puppet that is insanely cute.
