Super cute DVD for babies!!!!
21 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My kids have been Baby Einstein fans for a while now and so when I heard about this new title I was curious to see how it would compare to the originals. To start with I must point out that a fellow mum (at nursery) had recommended it to me with a glowing report so at least I knew it wouldn't be a complete turkey like some of the ones we've watched!!! So what can I tell you? Well like a few of the other baby titles on the market, 'Oxbridge Baby – My First DVD' is a healthy mix of live action, puppets and animation all set to classical music. So far so normal I hear you shout but this has a few things that make it that little bit different.

First of all the animation is wonderful. There are about 5 little 'sketches' that follow a very cute frog as he hunts for food. He meets a number of animals along the way (a rabbit, a sheep, a mouse etc) and we see and hear the noises they make. These bits work really well and are very bright and colourful. Most babies won't follow the narrative and will simply enjoy it for the 'look' but it also helps me when I say to my daughter 'what noise does the sheep make?' and then I hear the cutest little 'baaaa' from her.

Also the music is great. It sounds like someone has taken a long time to listen to popular classical songs and then make them simpler (sounds better than I have described it!!!). Anyway this is also an excellent part.

So how does it compare to other titles on the market? Well in our house its right up there. At just under 30 minutes it is about the perfect length and we are all now all fans. Would I recommend it? Yes, without a hesitation.
