Quick summary of the Baby Einstein Refund story here. Disney is returning your money if you brought this video for your baby. May sound like generosity on Disney’s part but don’t forget this is a corporate shark of a company and anything by consumers’ good is the motive behind their giving out the refund.
Disney was threatened by a class action suit and to fend that off, they decided to return the money. If I am a lawyer, I would still go ahead with the class action law suit. Thats because I don’t hear anything punitive about Disney’s role. Not only should they return the money to the parents, but also pay a fine.
According to The New York Times, the videos were marketed as educational infant products, but in reality, they function as little more than electronic babysitters. Disney purchased the Baby Einstein line of educational videos for infants in 2001. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children should not watch television or videos until they reach the age of two.
