New Videos Targeting the Baby Set

Byline: Jeff Tuckman Daily Herald Correspondent

The Baby School Company has developed an innovative and exciting new infant learning tool called "So Smart." It is an animated stimulation video blending leading research on infant brain development into a creative learning experience for babies ages 3 months through a year-and-a-half.

The video was the brainchild of Alexandra M. Tornek, who has dedicated her career to infant psychology research. She was motivated by her work with hundreds of high-risk babies and seeing the effects of a nonstimulating environment.

"So Smart" (30 minutes, $14.95): This video is based on landmark studies that show that stimulating your baby's mind from birth can lead to enhanced intellectual development. It is designed to help your baby: learn to identify objects in the real world; assimilate increasingly complex stimuli; become familiar with facial expressions and nonverbal communication; focus on and track moving objects; learn that association between cause and effect; understand object permanence, and develop memory. An activity guide is included with the video. Order by calling (800) 663-2741.
