What are they? Never heard of them.

Dottydot Mon 16-Jul-07 13:53:43

No - we've just bought ours at the outrageous price of £17... The nursery staff said we could copy it but dp's morals got in the way...

we got one from pre-school last week.
it was ds2 sitting in a car, looking to one side-from where he was obviously being directed to wave was against a background of animals and jungle etc.

it lasted 4 minutes and they wanted £17 for it.

no way.

it was rubbish!

We bought the sodding Christmas one with the DCs badly CSO'd over an unconvincing "sleigh ride"...

I shudder to think of it...

link please
not heard of it

Kathyis6incheshigh Mon 16-Jul-07 13:55:39

So they're random video footage of your child, badly edited and priced ridiculously?

filchthemildmanneredjanitor Mon 16-Jul-07 13:56:19

in a nutshell.

UnquietDad Mon 16-Jul-07 13:56:26

That's pretty much it, Kathy!

Dottydot Mon 16-Jul-07 13:56:30

oh right

we just have photos at our nursery

madamez Mon 16-Jul-07 13:57:19

Not been offered one yet, but DS dad did talk me out of buying the official Nursery Photo for about £20 as DS looked utterly miserable and peculiar in it, and it was badly lit - and we have so many really good photos of hime anyway.

Have 'em virtually every year at the nurseries I've used. I bought 1 for each DD. A total rip off.

The last one we got sent was shite. DD is usually really really smiley and she looked like she was going to burst into tears most of the way through, so I didn't buy it. Probably wouldn't have anyway mind you - quality was not good.

And that music!

UnquietDad Mon 16-Jul-07 14:00:27

For the price of two or three of them you can buy your own digital camera and take innumerable silly videos against unconvincing backgrounds of your own devising! We won't be getting any more...

diplodocus Mon 16-Jul-07 14:00:43

Just had one sent home which looks like the results of a really bad acid trip - DD uncovincingly driving a car surrounded by massive insects and other equally bizarre creatures. Unfortunately DH saw it after a few beers and couldn't stop laughing, so is insisting we buy it. DD loves watching it, despite my concerns that it will scar her for life.

Kathyis6incheshigh Mon 16-Jul-07 14:01:41

Oh I do love the official nursery baby unit group photo.
All 12 children somehow have been coerced into sitting still, but one has turned his head away from camera just before the photo was taken. None of the children are smiling, two have clearly been crying and the staff have strained smiles.

heifer Mon 16-Jul-07 18:02:20

have to admit to loving DDs.

Never seen one before and sure beats the hell out of the drab photo pack you get with all of the photos the same...

DH and I were really surprised that DD actually did what she was suposed to do,usually too shy infront of others, she was obviously very well directed!..

not sure I would get another one though - I think 1 might just be enough...

amidaiwish Mon 16-Jul-07 18:26:37

mine are watching theirs as we speak
with barney bee
they love it
it is overpriced shite
but hey, so is a lot of stuff!

it's also fab seeing the one from the year before and how much they change.
