The Baby Einstein recall is a relief to some parents. The Baby Einstein recall is because Baby Einstein doesn’t really teach your kids anything – even though previous claims state otherwise. Who would have thought that the Baby Einstein recall would be such a high profile event?
The Baby Einstein recall allows parents to receive a refund for items purchased between June 5, 2004 and September 4, 2009. If you purchased a Baby Einstein DVD during this time frame, you are entitled to a 25% off coupon for one Little Einstein product at the Disney Store. You can also opt to receive a $15.99 refund or a Baby Einstein music CD.
If you are going to participate in the Baby Einstein recall, you had better act fast! The Baby Einstein recall offer ends on March 4, 2010. Don’t wait to the last minute, as you can only imagine how many other parents are also taking advantage of the recall.
Unlike most recalls, the Baby Einstein recall does not have anything to do with safety. The Baby Einstein products are still safe to use. The Baby Einstein recall is because certain claims were made regarding the product’s educational benefits. Since the company overstated the benefits, they must give back money to consumers to avoid a class-action lawsuit.
If you went crazy purchasing Baby Einstein products trying to turn your kid into the next Albert Einstein, you may be a little disappointed with the terms and conditions of the Baby Einstein recall. The Baby Einstein recall is only for up to 4 refunds. You also have to hand over your Baby Einstein product in order to get the refund.
Was Disney smart for issuing the Baby Einstein recall? I think so. I think this move gives consumers confidence that Disney will always do what is right. Allowing for up to $60 back will provide some families with much-needed funds to purchase their children gifts for the holiday season. Perhaps Disney hopes that a large majority of the Baby Einstein recall money will be spent on other Baby Einstein or Disney products.
It’s good to see at least one company standing behind their product. With all the massive recalls that have happened lately, it’s also nice to see a recall that isn’t concerned with a safety hazard. The Baby Einstein products are still very safe; it’s just that Disney wants to make sure that their customers remain 100% satisfied with their purchases.
