I am woefully behind on my product reviews with the arrival of our two new kids. But I wanted to tell you what I thought of some kids DVD’s that were sent to me recently.
The first is a new series of shows called Bedbugs by Greenestuff Incorporated. I reviewed Volume One which featured The Lost Sock Adventure as well as two other shows. My younger kids were entertained by this and I thought it was fairly fun to watch as well.
The next video I watched was called Yo Gabba Gabba. It is produced by Nick Jr. The show I watched had a cameo of Elijah Woods dancing during one song. Other shows are also slated to feature some famous guest such as Biz Markie and Tony Hawk. The music is definitely the best part of this new series that made its debut last wee. But frankly, this DVD was so slow and silly that it drove me batty. Even my younger kids wandered off as I watched it. It moves to slowly and is too simplistic even for a two year old in my opinion. Sorry, Nick Jr., this one is definitely a thumbs down in my book.
The final DVD was my very favorite. My kids have always enjoyed Backyardigans (also by Nick Jr.)and this new hour-long movie called Super Secret Spy is really fun. It premieres on Nickelodeon on Monday, September 17th, and in my opinion is very worth watching. Even my 9 year old boys enjoyed this one. We would definitely watch this one again!
So that’s my take on some of the new stuff out there for little kids lately. Please keep your ideas coming!
