I am wondering what DVDs are out there -- for the younger crowd?

Like Baby Einstine -- but even less complex?

Maybe just music and images -- either just colors, or whatever...........

I like BE but I am not sure the "teaching" (picture of apple with workd apple -- even if it is a puppet) will intrest 6 m old...........

I am looking ONLY for car entertaimnet...we travle 4+ hours often (one way 4+ hours on the highway) and he hates his car seat; .....................

Somehting to catch his attention, and even if i only get 5 minutes here and there -- that is 5 minutes i do not have to sing and bounce and work soooooooo hard

DVD suggestions?????

Aimee

Aimee + Scott = Theodore Roosevelt (11/05) and 23 months later Charles Abraham (10/07)....praying for a little sister; the search starts May 2014

Okay, I know your little one is just 6 months old, but some of these have lovely music and soft narration, so they might just capture his attention. Bonus, you'll like them, too!

They are not aimed at children (well, except for the National Geographic Really Wild Animals series, but where is it written that you have to only show children's images to children?) but there are certainly images that are eye-catching!

I would recommend the ones I highlighted in colour. Our ds (age 7 1/2 years) has been watching these since he was just a little munchkin (watched Walking With Dinosaurs at age 18 months!).

If any of these sound too much for you, what about Kipper or Franklin or Little Bear?? All nice, sweet and gentle. Quiet, too!
