Baby Einstein has been an important part of my life for almost my entire life. Since I was about three or four years old, my parents encouraged me to watch the videos and listen to the music (Baby Bach, one of the CDs/videos in the series was my personal favorite). I was easily captivated by its silly puppet shows, fascinating, brightly colored toys that appeared against a black or white background, real life images, and most importantly, it’s gentle handling of classical music.

I'm almost 20 and I still like it for the nostalgia, Does that mean that I have autism spectrum disorder?

No, liking to watch old shows you watched as a child for nostalgia is not part of the autism criteria. Do you have sensory issues? Repetitive behaviours? Social awkwardness/cluelessness? Perhaps look the autism criteria up on Google or speak to your doctor.

I don't like autism being mentioned to me as I'm partly in denial.
