- Looks pleasantly more like Julie's stuff!
Since my disappointment with Baby Neptune and Baby Galileo it seems as if this new video has finally returned to the original Baby Einstein style. The images are simple and the old puppets are back! My son really enjoyed it, though the beginning was a bit slow. The poems were very cute, and it was great to hear Julie's voice again (which my baby loves!) My biggest complaint was that they didn't teach numbers to ten. A good buy, though....more info
- Magnificent from a baby einstein picky viewers
This is such a magnificent production above all the other Baby Einstein DVDs. I assure everyone that children and adults alike will enjoy the video. Never boring and dull. It's less of a puppet show and really stress out on NUMBERS. Though they just featured from 1-5...great educational tool for beginners. So if your children has learned recognizing, counting, and sequencing from 1-5, then this is not for you. Try "Rock and Learn's Colors, Shapes and Counting". It's for advance learners.
WE also love the bonus features that came along. The discovery cards which featured counting from 1-10, the count along activities, and the how many game are so much fun to do with your child/ren. I have a 22 month old here and he is very responsive to these particular games. He also appreciates the See and Spy Counting Digital book that came along with the bonus track. It's an interactive counting book.
He never got tired of this one.....he always asks for this morning, noon and night. A treasure to recommend to any household....more info
- Simple Fun That Won't Bug Mom
These movies are well loved by my little girl ever since she was 3 months. (she's 10m now) They capture her attention and are a big help for those "bad days." Plus they're instructive and refreshingly simple with soothing classical music.
BE Numbers Nursery is great fun with no obnoxious songs that get stuck in tired mothers' minds. I highly recommend it over some of the other B.E. videos! Great for Baby and Mom!...more info
- Cute video for teaching numbers 1 - 5
Unlike most of the Baby Eistein videos that show toys, puppets, spinning things, etc for really no reason at all, this video at least has a purpose for showing all of those kinds of things. For the number 1, they start with a puppet scene and a little poem. Julie Clark is the narrator and if you have read any of my other Baby Einstein reviews, you'll know I do not care her voice at all (sorry Julie!). But, if you can get past that, then it's a pretty good dvd.
After this little puppet scene they show 1 apple, 1 duck, 1 cup and then they show all kinds of things for the number one (a toy, a flower, an animal, etc). There is lots of live-action video here. One little thing that bugs me is that the number 1 should just be a straight line, not with the little thing at the top which makes it look similar to a 7. I mean, these videos are for our little children and we should teach them how to properly write their numbers.
Each number, from 1 to 5, has about 5 minutes of video for it. For the number 2 they will have a puppet scene again with a poem, then show 2 apples, 2 ducks and 2 cups (these 3 items are shown for each number) and then this is followed by things in two's. There could be a little more speaking of the numbers when they show these things, I think.
At first I thought I wasn't going to like this dvd because it only goes to the number 5. But, my little girls is only 18 months and can't even really count to 2 yet, so I guess a video that goes up to 5 is a good place to start. For beyond the number 5 you might want to check out Baby Brainy 123's (I have a review for that too).
On the Main Menu for the dvd there are some really nice added features. There are Discovery Cards (these say the numbers 1 - 10 in 7 different languages), there are Count-Along Activities, How Many?, and See & Spy Counting Book. I don't know if the vhs video version would have these bonus features. If they don't then the vhs is really lacking in some good added activities.
Despite a few little negative things (Julie's voice, the number 1 looking like a 7, etc), which caused me to only give this 4 stars, I ended up purchasing this one for my daughter. This one along with Baby Neptune (water), Baby Galileo (sky), and Baby Newton (shapes) are the only Baby Einstein videos that I personally like. For the rest of the Baby Einstein videos.......well, I am sorry but I just can't believe how they have become so popular. I have written reviews for all of them. ...more info
- Better than most of their collection, but not great
I got this at a consignment store for about $3, and that's the right price for it. I think this is among the best of the Baby Einstein collection, but thats not saying much. I did notice that this one (unlike many others) was actually designed with the help of a developmental psychologist. Finally! As a result, it has a better structure, good pacing, and makes a better attempt at concept reinforcement than the other BE products. As is unfortunately typical among Baby Einstein, they make mistakes that interfere with the concept development, or add content that is only minimally related to what they are supposedly trying to teach. Buy BE because it has pretty music and pictures, but don't be fooled by BE marketing that your child will learn from them. I do think this one is entertaining but would not get it for a child over 12 months.If you're purchasing something educational for your child, stick with Sesame Street DVDs. The Children's Television Workshop does a far superior job of actually teaching as well as entertaining. ...more info
- MY 17MO. OLD LOVES THIS DVD
I will make this short and sweet.
My daughter is 17months old and knows numbers 1-10. She had found this DVD in its case about a week ago and wanted to watch it. So i let her of course....and from that DVD and practicing with me she now knows her numbers, 1-10.
Great DVD. Buy, watch and reflect on it with your lil ones! ;)...more info
- SO EDUCATIONAL
MY 2 YEAR OLD LOVES THIS VIDEO. IT IS SO EDUCATIONAL TOO, THAT I FEEL GOOD ABOUT HIM WATCHING IT! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND....more info
- BEST LEARNING TOOL!
NUMBERS NURSERY IS THE BEST! My husband and I are both teachers and we love Baby Einstein educational videos. Although the numbers nursery says that it goes 1-5; there is a special tab on the menu that shows a video for numbers 1-10. My daughter is 16 months and is able to say and recognize numbers 1-10. Of course we worked with her individually but the numbers nursery video is also a great asset as well. It is an extension of what you are already doing with your child. DEFINITELY BUY THIS VIDEO. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT....more info
- Hooray for the Tiger Tape!
Like many parents, we own all of the Baby Einstein videos. Baby Bach and Baby Einstein are the only two my kids never enjoyed. Numbers Nursery is another HIT!
Disney has finally been smart enough to go back to Julie Aigner-Clark's original Einstein concept. What made Baby Einstein so special in the first place was that it was so simple. Babies don't need special effects and computer-based graphics - such as in Baby Newton - ugh!
Both my 11-month old daughter and 2 1/2 year old son love this tape. Yes, it would be nice if it went higher than five, but the point of the tape is not to teach your children how to count. That's your job. It's educational entertainment, or so I like to think.
If your kids love Baby Einstein as much as I do, they are going to love Numbers Nursery....more info
- Makes learning fun
This is a good movie for exposing little ones to numbers. It has lots of fun puppet shows and pictures. Lots of extras on the DVD too. My son (20 mo.) loves to watch it and I know it won't be long before things start "clicking" and he starts recognizing the numbers....more info
- A Welcome Return to Form
Now THIS is more like it!
This DVD clearly illustrates the numbers one to five, in a clear, fun format, with music, great visuals, and logical format. The graphics are simple and uncluttered, the toys are new, and the puppets are not doing the same things over and over again.
It teaches not only counting, but also reading, and this is the first time in the series that the bonus material is as good as, or better than, the main feature.
The main feature runs nearly 30 minutes, exactly as stated on the box, and the bonus material doubles the fun.
An essential Baby Einstein DVD to jump start your child....more info
- The stuff that makes Baby Einstein so great!!!
My 15-month-old daughter LOVES this one and it is certainly educational. Perhaps Disney's influence on the series had made the previous few videos more slick with cartoon characters, complex puppets and corny songs (i.e., Baby Neptune, Galileo and Newton). But this video goes back to more simplistic and magical style of the first videos. I am happy to see that Julie Clark, or someone at the Baby Einstein Company, has realized that there was no need to change the format!!...more info
- My sons favorite
We have six DVD's in the Baby Einstein series and this one is my sons favorite by far. Do not be fooled by the recommended age of 1+. Jake is almost six months old and he loves it. We have been counting to him since he was born. I think the difference that really gets his attention in this video is that it is not only music, but also talking. He is completely engrossed in it for the duration of the video and he smiles the second he sees and hears it. I agree with some reviewers that counting only up to five is somewhat basic for toddlers. Get your moneys worth and get this video while your child is a baby and you can grow with the video and use the bonus material(dicovery cards and counting games) when your child becomes a toddler. ...more info
- Catches baby's attention, I enjoy watching it with him!
My son is 9 months, so I thought maybe the numbers were a little early for him. I popped it in the other day to just check it out for myself, and baby was actually very interested. He obviously doesn't understand the concept of numbers yet, but he enjoys Julie's voice telling the little stories, and counting items and the music is cute too. We have a few other DVDs (Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Neptune) but this one is our favorite of the moment. We will definitely use it in a few more months when it's time to teach him numbers. This is a playful way of making him count. It will obviously come in completement to playing with him and making him count with real objects. It's just an additional way of exposing him to those things. And I know that while I am getting dressed he is not screaming in his play pen, or getting bored in an exersaucer, or getting in trouble somewhere, he is safely enjoying music and cute images....more info
- Very limited.
Teaching babies the numbers 1-5 is great and all, but I am beyond perplexed why in the world Baby Einstein stopped at the number 5. Do they really think that babies can't learn more than that? Good grief! They are just getting started there! This DVD is very entertaining. Indeed,it is mostly entertainment as the numbers one through five will be mastered in very short order there by making it pure entertainment. Save your money and buy Rochard Scary's Best Counting Video Ever. It is just as entertaining (if not more so) and goes to number 20, withj lots of cute dialogue that babies love. Similarly, check out Leap Frog Letter Factory (for letters) and Trebellina (for music). You won't be disappointed....more info
- love it!
My daughter is 23 months old. We have many of the Baby Einstein products. "Numbers Nursery" is one of our favorites. It really holds her attention and she is learning her numbers as well. The puppets are wonderful and the scene with the 3 race cars is priceless...she applauds this every time!...more info
- 1-5 counting exercise for toddlers
this video will help your toddler count to 5 using visuals and other kids and make it all very fun and entertaining. i recommend this for kids without the knowledge of numbers, for a more helpful and entertaining way to learn. my son is almost four and he is a little bit past this. i had to search for the videos and dvd that go to higher numbers. if you child is just beginning to learn to count, or you are planning to introduce numbers to him/her, this is a wonderful way to help the learning process. i highly recommend this video and all the others in the einstein series. ...more info
- Love the Learning...Nice New Twist for Baby Einstein
I'm a big fan of Baby Einstein videos for the most part. We own most of them and have watched them countless times. My daughter (now 20 months) has lost interest in them now. She was most drawn to them from 8-15 months I think.
But I was thrilled to see this one come out and got it thinking it would be more "educational" than the others seem to be. I was right. I really like how this one goes through the numbers, counting, sequence, etc. The puppets, music, objects, format just seems to make more sense than some of the other more "out there" ones.
Best of all, my daughter loved it and quickly learned to count from 1-5. My only regret was that 5-10 wasn't out (and still isn't)! I'd also love to see an A-Z one! The other new one Baby McDonald is pretty good and slightly different than the "traditional" format too. My daughter asked for "mcdonalds" almost every day for a month after we first got it!
And like another reviewer said, be sure to check out the other choices on the DVD, especially if your child seems bored with just the video. You can find lots of other learning/fun things on each one too!...more info
- That's the stuff
This offering returns to the look and sound which originally sparked the success of the series. There has clearly been a lesson learned from the completely unwatchable failure of Baby Newton. Babies Neptune and Gallileo edged back to the formula of success, and now, Numbers Nursery seems to have closed the circle, comfortably returning to the style which made Baby Einstein so special. I agree with those who are happy to find evidence of Julie Clark's influence in the writing and presentation. There is the sense that she has returned to save the series. It seems that she has....more info
- What a great discovery!!
I had heard of Baby Einstein in passing by other people but since my children are grown and in college...except for one that is in High School I didn't have to be in the new ways of teaching children(babies) how to learn their numbers and shapes. Now, that I'm a grandparent I started looking for different ways that I could not only entertain but educate my grand child. I came across Baby Einsten Numbers and Shapes Discovery Cards. Wow, how things have changed in 22 years anyway my grad daughter seem to be captivated by the colors...it was then that I saw that two different videos(dvd) went with the cards(this being one of them and Baby Newton) to help re-enforce what the children see on the cards and vise versa.
When I first showed my grand daughter the video she was anything but intrested but I put it in a little later after she had ate and took her nap and she was just enthralled by what she was looking at on the tape.
I wish they had these when my children were growing up but one thing is for sure my grand daughter will be a Baby Einstein baby...I have already ordered other products and can't wait for them to arrive and watch my grand daughter's face.
Great Product, Great Price!!!...more info
- My daughter loves this!
My daughter will not sit still to watch anything, except this. I love that she'll watch it and it will actually teach her something. She is 16 months old....more info
This video keeps my 18 month olds attention. The thing I love most is he is not zombied by it, he talks about it we name the puppets and make it an interactive learning experience....more info
- Dalton's Mama
Numbers Nursery is number one! I bought this on a whim & am so glad I did. My son is only 5 months old but is transfixed by the music and colors. He gets excited, waves his arms, and babbles along. My husband was skeptical that our son reacted this way until he saw it for himself. This was money well spent! I plan to buy more Baby Einstein products. These would make great gifts for a baby shower....more info
- Excellent DVD
We own several Baby Einstein DVD's and this one, as well as Baby Shakespeare, are my 14 month old sons' favorite videos. He will walk into a TV room and run up to the television, insisting either one to be played. The puppets play a large part in this video, along with other children. There are also various puppets included, instead of only 1 or 2. For these reasons, he really enjoys them. They are extremely educational and fun to watch. Of all the Baby Einstein videos,Nursery Numbers and Baby Shakespeare are the ones to get if your child is 1 year and older. These are the only vidoes my extremely active son will actually sit down and watch! I have bought this video for 2 girlfirends who have 1 year olds. I strongly recommend both of them....more info
- Good Buy
Good video, great music and a good start to teaching numbers. I just wish they would come out with a video for the numbers 6-10....more info
- Awesome addition to Baby Einstein Series
My daughter loves this DVD. It uses real life objects to show numbers and is captivating for both adults and children alike....more info
- The Best
Now that my daughter is two I thought I would stop buying the Baby Einstein series. On a whim, I purchased Numbers Nursery. This is by far one of the best Baby Einstein videos! Even though my daughter already counts way past 5, this video helps her conceptualize the numbers. She calls the video "tiger numbers" and loves the characters - especially the horse. She belly laughs when he eats a flower. We have been collecting many of the items from the video around the house so that we can count along with the tape - for example, we find 5 apples and count when they come up on the tape. It is very interactive and fun. I highly recommend this video along with the other Baby Einstein classics. Thanks Julie!...more info
- Numbers Nursery VHS is Mesmerizing
My 19 month old is absolutely fascinated by the Numbers Nursery. She loves numbers and this video not only supplies learning the numbers and the words for the numbers, but also the Braille for the numbers. If your child enjoys counting to ten, be sure to note that there is no bonus material on the VHS version, even though it is on the table of contents...A great disappointment. I can't wait for the 5 - 10 video to come out...hint, hint!...more info
- Counting is fun!
My 17-month old has had this DVD for a few months now and she loves it! She repeats the numbers as they are spoken on the video and she likes to identify the images and toys as they show on the screen. We often sit with her to watch it and count out loud with her. She enjoys counting everything now -- her toes, my toes, the ladybugs on her pajamas, the pieces of chicken on her plate......more info
- Babies of all ages love Baby Einstein
My son has been watching baby einstein movies since he was 1 month old. He LOVES these movies. He has always intently watched the movies laughing and interacting as best as a baby can. He is now 10 months and Numbers Nursery has been a wonderful learning tool for him. It opens up his mind to understanding colors & numbers. He hasn't cared for Elmo or Teletubbies yet. Baby Einstein provides a wonderful learning expirence for your child and allows you to at least get some laundry done!...more info
My 18 month old daughter loves this video. She now easily counts to 5 and has picted up extra vocabulary words as well. The DVD version is great, especially if you have the numbers book your child can read along with the video. The best part is that it has some humor so adults enjoy it too....more info
- Once again, a top-of-the-line product!
We are so pleased with our collection of Baby Einstein products, and this video has certainly proven the excellent quality of the Baby Einstein company once again! Our son, 20 months, is learning to count and recognize colors, and we owe his quick learning in part to Baby Einstein. We watch this video as a family and count, say colors, and have a wonderful time learning. It truly is a great tool for educating the young mind. The puppets are lively, and fun to watch - and of course, the music and sounds "make" the video. Thank you!...more info
