Baby Einstein is a line of products, ranging in various forms, including videos, CDs, books, flashcards, toys, and other gear for infants and toddlers. The videos are known for showing babies and toddlers patterns, puppet shows, and familiar objects, incorporated with reorchestrated classical music written by composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig Van Beethoven and others. The series was created by Julie Aigner-Clark.

Due to the rise in popularity surrounding Baby Einstein, several ripoffs were made based off of the series, including a Korean adaption of Baby Einstein would be produced, called: Baby Genius. This version of Baby Einstein (later renamed to Language Nursery) would be released on VHS & DVD, along with another one from the same company (BMKOREA) called New Baby Mozart, a Korean adaptation of Baby Mozart. These were created after the company originally released illegally made copies of Baby Einstein and Baby Mozart, with heavy edits done to them. In 2000, Julie Aigner Clark (the founder of Baby Einstein) sued and forced the videos off of the market. Most of the content seems to follow along the same lines as their original release, except this time it includes English, Korean, Japanese & Chinese. Some scenes are also almost identically reused from the original release.

Availability

Very little footage and photos of the Korean adaption is available, first uploaded on to bmkorea.co.kr & was first uploaded on to YouTube on June 28, 2023 by a user by the name of moshialt2331 who posted a 1 minute trailer off of a Little Laurate DVD and was reposted onto YouTube by user BEFan7904, along with another trailer featured on the YouTube channel littleseouls.

Unfortunately, all of the videos on the company's website are dead, and only a few of the photos are still accessible.
