Baby Einstein goes global, traveling around the world to introduce young viewers to different cultures and types of music.

This is "Baby Einstein's" first foray into world music, and it's got a beat little ones will definitely want to dance to! In this special DVD, "Baby Einstein" also premieres two new features. Older kids can use the "Grow With Me" mode to get a more advanced viewing experience containing spoken words and additional content, while younger babies may prefer the "Select-a-Segment," which offers the choice of enjoying shorter segments. However children watch this DVD, they'll realize that music is a universal language which they can understand and feel even if they can't speak at all yet!
Baby (0-2)
Yes 0-12 months. YES From the cherry blossoms of Asia to Big Ben in Europe, there is so much to look at and listen to, and because there are no developmental concepts they need to struggle to understand, even the youngest babies can simply enjoy the music and the lovable puppets. Using the "Select-a-Segment" feature, parents can customize their baby's viewing experience by choosing as much or as little as they think he or she can handle at one time.
12-18 months. YES One-year-olds, who are becoming more curious about the world around them, will be glued to the images of the world around them. They'll get caught up in the whirl of costumes, scenery and animals, and will get as much joy out of hearing the rainsticks in Australia as the maracas in South America.
18-24 months. YES Babies approaching their second birthday are likely to be up on their feet, moving to the music. They'll be so fascinated by the different instruments, you may want to consider giving them toy versions to play along with.
2+. MAYBE Because of the new "Grow With Me" feature, 2-year-olds can get an enriching viewing experience out of segments they may otherwise have outgrown. They will probably enjoy learning about the seven continents and discovering that, for our all differences, we are very much the same.
