Okay, so maybe this isn't the perfect baby gift, but it's a great gift for the mom or dad that loves classic movies. The Sound of Music is a classic movie that is beloved by all generations. It's the perfect movie for the whole family. This commemorative kit includes an interactive DVD with behind the scenes images, on screen lyrics, trivia track and location quiz. There's even a "backlot tour" with in depth features on the songs, the stage show & movie, and the real life von Trapp family. If you wish you could visit Austria, but don't have the budget, you can watch the virtual map of filming locations in Salzburg, Austria. It's just like being there.

If you have a little princess in your house, then you definitely want Disney's Brave on your holiday list this year. You will love following this adventurous little princess on her quest to discover her destiny. The story is told with the beautiful animation that you would expect from a Disney feature. Some screen images might scare a few children under the age of 10, but if you think your little one can handle it, then pop in the DVD and get ready for an awesome movie.

The summer driving season is here!! If you are dreading a chorus of "Are we there yet?" or "How much longer?" then you need to upgrade your DVD collection. There are plenty of great choices out there. Think back to 2010 when How to Train Your Dragon was released on DVD. It is a fun, light hearted movie about a young Viking named Hiccup who is struggling to find his place while living in his father's shadow. In the end, Hiccup, this father and the entire Viking village learn valuable lessons about judging others, perseverance and working together. Who wouldn't want their child to learn such lessons?

After the movie, you can create new memories for yourself while you are entertained by the Tangled Ever After short that is also included.

You might be thinking, "Why is a CD featured on a parenting website?" Because Mother's Day will be here before you know it and it's best NOT to leave this stuff to the last minute. By now, you have surely heard of the amazing singer Adele. She is to CD sales, what Oprah is to publishing. Her amazing voice is bringing back old fashioned CD sales like crazy. Hits like "Rumor has it" and "Someone like you" are playing virtually non stop. If you want to make sure your mom is listening to the latest and greatest music, be sure to pick up Adele 21.

I'm thankful for great classics like Winnie The Pooh. Children can still learn important lessons from this lovable bear and his furry friends. Winnie the Pooh is one of the last characters to maintain his low key simple pleasures. The world outside the Hundred Acre Wood has not tainted this little bear one bit. We should all be so lucky.

If there is a toddler on your holiday list, than you better be sure to pick up a Cars 2 DVD or Blue Ray. Everyone loves Lightening McQueen, the super competitive, but friendly race car and his loyal friends. This time around he has an entire new crew of friends to help him. Don't let your little one be the only one without this Disney classic. You will be glad you added it to your collection.

No DVD collection is complete without a few Disney classics in the mix. Lightening McQueen, Mater, and Sally have quickly become the favorite characters to many American children. Cars 2 is available for pre order for its release on November 1. I say this is a perfect holiday gift to tuck away. If, that is, you can resist the urge to watch it yourself on the day it arrives.

If your idea of a lullaby includes happy dancing bears, then you are in luck. This CD transforms several of the Grateful Dead's classics into a soothing lullaby format. There's no need to subject yourself to endless renditions of "Old McDonald" when you can teach your little one "Sugar Magnolia" or "Casey Jones." It's never too soon to teach your child about good music.

When my first child was born, I was inundated with gifts. There were tiny outfits, little piggy banks and photo albums. Of all the gifts my new little family received, I have to say one of my favorites was this CD, All You Need Is Love: Beatles Songs for Kids. I still have it many years (and kids) later. I guess you have to be a Beatles fan to fully appreciate it, but for a parent who has just spent their day listening to the same children's music all day long, this CD provides some welcome relief. It puts a little bit of "you" back in your day and keeps your little one from losing it. All you need is love? Who knows if that's true, but when you are holding your little baby and humming these great tunes. It sure seems that way.

Every parent needs to know CPR and safe choking maneuvers. But it can hard to find the time to make it to a class when you are juggling a job, new baby, and other daily life stresses. Check out this instructional DVD for a full course on life saving techniques. Real children are used during the demonstrations, not dummies which makes the lesson much more realistic.

Anderson loves listening to the Laurie Berkner Band in the car. I think he'd really like this DVD: We are . . . The Laurie Berkner Band. It features 11 original songs, and a couple of DVD extras: behind the scenes, a choreography tutorial, etc. The best part about Laurie Berkner is that her songs are so accessible. We love singing right along with Andy in the car. That accessibility is also present on this DVD. From the playful rhymes that declare Tuesday "snooze day" in "I'm Gonna Catch You" to the absurd image of fish taking showers and brushing their teeth in "The Goldfish," Laurie Berkner's songs celebrate a child's love of the ridiculous. The uninhibited trio performs live onstage or within simply animated scenes.
