My "little" who used to need Mom and Dad to handle all his Baby Einstein DVD's is now 5 and handles them himself, thank you!! Yes, he still likes to watch them when he needs some "down" time. But I don't think he has EVER tried to chew on them. Guess he must be smarter than the average Washington DC politician's child(ren).
