My Thoughts:

With almost 80 minutes of pure Barney fun and sing-along excitement, this DVD sure did keep my girls entertained during our recent 3-hr. car ride to NH.  But, don't ask my husband, who was driving, if he enjoyed, as he is not a fan of Barney, and cringed each and every time Barney and his friends broke out in song.  He did admit that it was cute when the girls would chime in and sing the "I Love You" song. :-)

Each of the four episodes were filled with catchy tunes the girls enjoyed and were able to sing along to.  And, each got the girls imagining with Barney and his friends about visiting far away places, and what they would look like.  Savannah's favorite part was when Barney and friends built their own airplane to help take them on an amazing adventure. 

 Parents familiar with Barney and Friends know that each and every episode is not only entertaining and engaging for little ones, but also teaches them important lessons like teamwork, using one's imagination and never giving up.  The same holds true with these 4 episodes, which were all instant hits with my girls.  While we only watched this DVD a handful of time during our car ride and at my parents' summer home, the girls still can't get enough, and ended up watching it again a few times since we have been back. :-)  I don't see them stopping anytime soon with their requests for this new Barney DVD.  

If you have a Barney fan in your house, you will definitely want to check out this new DVD release.  Come on, you can't get enough Barney, can you? :-)
