WHAT'S NEW

Videos promise to boost baby brains

A new line of videos aimed at babies aim to boost children's mental development by entertaining the babies and offering interactive activities for parents.

Musical Baby and Baby's Day, the first 30-minute titles in Fisher-Price's baby development collection, each feature a 10-minute "play group" segment with Deborah S. Weber, a play and learning specialist at Fisher-Price's Child Research Center. The segment shows parents several interactive games they can play with their babies.
