My 17 month old son has been watching this show for about 3 months. He recognizes the classical music from the shows. If he hears a recording of the songs, he stops what he is doing and listens to the music. He says, "Einsteins" and starts dancing around. He never slows down, he gets into everything and he is very persistent, but when he's watching this show nothing phases him. He is in a zone, not to be bothered. When the kids on the show are trying to figure something out, they ask is this the right door, path, etc. he says , "no." He totally interacts with the characters it is adorable. He even joins in when they pat to the beat and blast off. This is the only show/movie he pays attention to. The music is exceptional and the stories, though a bit cheesy, are very entertaining and educational. For young children, this show is a definite must see. It teaches basic music vocabulary and problem solving skills. The characters also help out others, usually animals or musical instruments. I never wanted my son to watch much television, maybe an hour per day. Playhouse Disney has a lot of really good programming for young children. No distasteful characters or weapons are shown. Little Einsteins is the one show that I let my son watch just about whenever he wants to. He doesn't watch TV, he has all of the DVDs, that is what he watches. He has seen other Playhouse Disney shows but this show is the only one he sits down to watch. I highly recommend it to young children and parents too.
