Some people might avoid having kids because they don’t want to deal with the crying, the diapers, the spitting up and all of the other stereotypical downsides of raising a child. I, on the other hand, am fine with all of that stuff, it’s the having to listen to 5 or 6 years of kid-centric music that truly scares me. Thankfully Baby Einstein sells this Takealong Tunes toy that plays baby-friendly versions of classical masterpieces by Mozart, Vivaldi, Chopin and Rossini. It’s got a single large button for cycling through 7 classic melodies, and also features a light-up display to help keep junior distracted. Now don’t get me wrong, Raffi seems like a nice guy and all, and his heart seems to be in the right place, but I’d much rather spend a car trip listening to baby-friendly versions of Mozart than that song about the Baby Beluga. The Baby Einstein Takealong Tunes is available from Amazon.com for just $7.99.
