The Baby Einstein Company, the leader in the infant media category, has received eight awards since the beginning of the year from distinguished organizations that recognize the best family-friendly products on the market and from moms and dads who simply cannot live without Baby Einstein.

Since the company’s debut 10 years ago, The Baby Einstein Company has been making millions of moms and babies around the world smile with its award-winning DVDs, books, CDs, toys and gear, all specifically designed to engage babies and provide parents with ways help bring the world into their homes.

In 2009, Baby Einstein has received the following awards:

  • iParenting Best Products– Animal Exploration Tunnel
  • iParenting Excellent Products– World Music DVD
  • iParenting Excellent Products– World Music CD
  • Parent Tested Parent Approved Best Products– 10th Anniversary Baby Mozart

Leading the award wins has been World Music, the first in the company’s new World Music line, which brings cultures from all seven continents into homes and features world music that has been re-orchestrated especially for a baby’s ears. Inspired by moms’ desires for a more customized DVD experience, World Music features two new ways to customize parents and babies’ experience with Baby Einstein DVDs: “Grow with Me,” which offers additional words for parents to use with babies as babies grow, and “Select-a-Segment,” which offers shorter segments of the DVD to customize the viewing experience.

Other 2009 award-winners include Baby Einstein’s Animal Exploration Tunnel, a four-foot long crawling tunnel with five detachable and repositionable toys and “crinkle” fabric leaves, which already garnered The National Parenting Center’s Holiday Seal of Approval and Toy Wishes Magazine’s “Best Toys” in 2008. Finally, the 10th Anniversary Editions of Baby Mozart and Baby Beethoven DVDs, released to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the brand, featured digitally and audio re-mastered content and bonus features such as “Together Time Tips,” which illustrate useful tips and tools for parents about how to make DVD viewing an interactive and engaging experience for their children.

“We are thrilled to be among the winners of these prestigious awards, which are awarded by moms themselves because it is an ongoing reinforcement that our products are making an impact in the lives of parents and babies,” said Susan McLain, Vice President and General Manager of The Baby Einstein Company. “Baby Einstein was founded by a new mom looking to share her passion for arts and humanities with her newborn daughter and we continue that mission because of the thousands of letters we receive each year from moms who are using our products to entertain and play with their child(ren).”
