Baby Einstein Videos make Baby DumbStein

There's a reason people call it an idiot box.
MinnPost: "a 2007 study involving children (some in Minnesota) aged 8 to 16 months found that for every hour a child spent watching a Baby Einstein or other type of baby-oriented DVD or video, the child understood six to eight fewer words than same-aged babies who didn’t watch them." [emphasis mine]
Einstein didn't watch TV when he was a kid.

My dad's characterization of the television as a uni-directional sludge-pump is continually validated.
