Wondering what kid-safe show you can share with your children this weekend? PBS just released on January 23rd 2018 a wonderful 90-minute collection that will bring joy and safe entertainment to your little ones. Daniel Tiger is a wonderful show with musical roots similar to Mr Roger’s Neighborhood, the creative idea behind this same show, reminiscent to your own childhood. PBS has great, positive shows for young children and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is one great example of this. The characters bond together as a family, friends and demonstrate positive characteristics to young viewers.
Daniel Tiger Neighborhood has wisps of Mr Roger’s neighborhood in the form of a cartoon tiger and his family, theme song and feel. Daniel is a kind, friendly and loveable tiger with friends ranging from a human prince to an owl, cat and more. Daniel is appealing to young children because his personality and feelings are very much like a young 3-5 year old. He is also liked by parents because he has both positive and negative characteristics that children share while imparting simple wisdom to children on how to behave and not let those negative characteristics take flight. Practically every episode has music in some form, engaging children’s senses, memory and motor skills for dancing and singing.
We received the Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Neighborhood Friends Collection DVD for review. This DVD was a great viewing for both my kids. They both love to sing and see Daniel with his friends. My son loved the episode of Prince Wednesday and his rock collection as he has one of his own and understands the feeling of not wanting to share even with someone you care about. My daughter on the other hand loved the episode on Miss Elaina’s rocket ship. She is currently obsessed with being in a box and gets touchy herself when her box is disturbed. She loved seeing Daniel and Miss Elaina pretend and was engaged when Miss Elaina got a bit sad over an incident with the rocket ship. I enjoyed seeing their faces light up and happy to provide safe, education entertainment for their young minds. The DVD has about 8 episodes, so I let my kiddos enjoy two a day which made them very happy all week.
You can find this DVD on the PBS Shop site currently priced at $14.99 and other DVD’s from the same series as low as $3.99. Follow them on Facebook, and Twitter for special deals and news on upcoming releases for kids and parents.
