Nope. Next up: Surgery for babies.
But I'd sell them if I could make a lot of money.
By the time they get to High School they won't remember any of it. Anything that encourages parents to put their smart phone down and read to babies is a good thing, IMO.

Yes, to amuse the parents of the kid, not for the kid to learn from.

I was quite pleased with myself when I decorated the new baby room with wallpaper, Aa Bb Cc....123 .... running round the middle.
All straight.

Even that was probably over the top, pretty colours and pictures would have been just as good probably.

Visually for a baby.

Not as stimulating as dad talking and singing though.

I dunno. To this day I remember The Little Engine That Could, Bartholomew And The Oobleck, Ping The Duck, The Elephant's Child, Brer Rabbit, and Little Black Sambo.

One day I was driving to University of California and saw Octavian Popp waiting for a bus. I stopped and said, "hop on, Popp."

It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.

For myself? No.

For a neighbor who just had a baby? Yes, I did.
