Baby Einstein Discovery Day with Gossip Girl's Kelly Rutherford
On March 25th Gossip Girl actress and NYC’s favorite Upper East Side mom, Kelly Rutherford, hosted a Baby Einstein play date at Lincoln Center in Manhattan. Kelly and her adorable daughter Helena joined about 30 New York City parents and their kids for a wonderful morning full of discovery. The play date included three different areas dedicated to the Discovery Kit’s three levels: Experience, Explore and Expression. Kids and parents alike enjoyed playing the life size piano mat in the experience section, joining the safari with the giant stuffed animals in the explore area and coloring in the expression part of the room.
Kelly was thrilled to host the event and said, “I’m just happy to be here, it’s fun. My kids love Baby Einstein so I’m just honored to be here.” She also added, “I have been a huge fan of Baby Einstein for a long time, my son is 4 and a half and my daughter is almost 2 and it’s just really saved me.”
The focus and highlight of the event was our Discovery Kits, which were a big hit among all of the guests, especially Kelly. She loves how the kits, “…integrate art, animals, nature and music. It’s just such a wonderful experience.” Our guests seemed to agree, and many shared their enthusiasm about the kits on Twitter:
