My Thoughts:
Does your child like Barney?  My daughter is going through a phase now where all she wants to watch on television is Barney.  I have watched a few episodes with her, but end recording them and letting her father watch them with her.  He now sings the “I Love You” song to her every night before bed.  After talking with other moms, I have found that their children either love Barney, or don’t.    There is something about this show that makes me sleepy.  I remember watching it with children I used to babysit years ago, but now,  can’t fathom why this show has been around and so successful for years.  So, when it came to reviewing this title from Hit Entertainment and Lionsgate, I left it to my husband to watch with Savannah and share his thoughts.
My husband likes to watch the bonus features on DVDs first, and said that the read-along and counting game for fun to do with Savannah.   Now that Savannah is learning how to count, she was able to follow along with Barney and play this game.  When it came time to watch the DVD, which contained 4 episodes of this hit show, both my husband and Savannah found Airplanes and On the Road Again to be their favorites.  The songs sung in each of these episodes were catchy, and when I was cleaning the living room over the weekend, saw my husband humming and tapping his feet to the songs.  Savannah was front and center dancing and pointing out things to her Daddy.  My husband liked how the episodes were short, which kept Savannah’s attention, and let him break up viewing over an afternoon.  When they were done watching all four episodes, Savannah wanted him to play it again. 🙂  So, as you can see, a Barney fan will love this new DVD release.  And, with summer right around the corner, these episodes will get young children excited about taking family car rides, all while learning about safety and the need to buckle up.
You can order this DVD online at, as well as buy at your favorite retailer.  It retails for only $14.98.

  • Barney is a time-tested, proven friend for any little boy or girl. My nieces and nephews would love this dvd. The problem would be in choosing which one to give it to if I were to win. Thanks Robin.
