I think this is such a great thing. I recently wrote about this on my blog- lts of people are for it, lots are against! Thanks for spreading the word about it!!
I personally don't agree with this. Unless you actually thought that your child would become a genius from watching these videos, I don't think the lawsuit applies to you. I purchased these videos because my children enjoyed watching them – that was accomplished so, in my opinion, returning them wouldn't be right in my case.
Rachel, I agree with you. However, even the brand name of this product implies that your child will learn something and perhaps become smarter as a result of watching these movies. Believe me, I actually know people who thought this! In those cases, a refund is more than appropriate, and I want to make sure people know about it!
