This time out, Baby Einstein shines a light on the Christmas tree and promises peace in the nursery, if not on earth. Familiar carols like "Jingle Bells," "Silent Night," and "Joy to the World" undergo the expected twinkly xylophone treatment, but a clutch of others get swept off to the Caribbean (the steel drum-studded "Twelve Days of Christmas"), the plains of Africa (the earthy, percussive "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"), and additional exotic locales. After yuletide stopoffs in France, Japan, and Germany, the "Holiday Concert" part of the disc takes over, featuring brainier but still festive selections from Bach, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky. This mid-CD switchover barely registers--each of the 28 mini-tracks (most average a minute and a half) does its part to stir visions of sugarplums and furthers the possibility of a truly silent night for the Santa's-lap set. --Tammy La Gorce
OKAY CD. SONGS JUST TO SHORT!

"HI ALL! I BOUGHT THIS CD AND THE DISNEY FAMILY CHRISTMAS ALBUM AND I RECOMMEND THAT ONE INSTEAD OF THIS ONE. THIS CD HAS A LOT OF VERY SHORT COMPLIATIONS FROM 20 SECONDS TO A LITTLE OVER MINUTE FOR LIKE EACH SONG. ACCEPT A FEW THAT ARE LITTLE LONGER. THE OTHER ALBUM HAS VERY BEAUTIFUL MUSIC SUNGS KIDS, ADULTS AND ARE THE FULL LENGTH SONGS. I RECOMMEND PEOPLE BUYING THE OTHER CD INSTEAD! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!"
Not very interesting

"Purchased for my 1 year old at 6.99 in Target, thought it would be a good deal, but it is putting us all to sleep. Wish I would have read the reviews first. This is not going to be something we play for the holiday."
Baby Einstein disappointment

"We are Really big fans of the Baby Einstein Collection, and have all the CD's, which are wonderful. So, happily when I bought this one for my 15 month old, I was looking forward to the same quality of songs, but this one is redundant (3 versions of Jingle Bells), and boring. There is so much fantastic Christmas music, and the makers could've done sooo much better. Would return it if I could."
