Baby raves new trend for moms and little ones

Flashing lights, thumping music, and babies?  "The Duke" in New York is taking part in a new trend in children's entertainment: Baby Raves.

Organizers and participating moms say the party, that also includes toys like large bouncy balls for kids as young as four months, is fun for mommy too.  Mother Amanda Rodriguez says "The music, it's not your traditional baby music, I think that's pretty cool for them."

Artistic Programming Director Jonathan Shmidt says New York isn't the first place to try out ideas like this.  "We've been noticing a trend in places like Europe and Australia; dance and theater companies creating work for the very, very young."

The baby raves continue until May 18.
