Baby Einstein Offering Refunds

New York Times: No Einstein in Your Crib? Get a Refund

I am thrilled to read this. The American Academy of Pediatrics weighed in on this issue years ago, and mild pressure from a child-advocacy group was sufficient to get the company to drop “educational” from the label. The best news? It was the mere threat of a suit, through efforts begun just a couple of years ago, that succeeded in bringing this refund offer about.

Products are no substitute for parenting. Hopefully that message will get across to well-meaning parents misled by Baby Einstein marketing.
