KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - It is stressed in the introduction that this is not an attempt to produce "super babies," just to help parents learn good exercise techniques to use with children. The babies responded by reaching and smiling at the puppets and artwork. Some made sounds in response to it. Many made movements when they were shown the onscreen Daddy. This is really more for parents than for children.
