My Thoughts:

Savannah couldn't get enough of the big purple dinosaur last year.  But, now that she is a big girl, she has since told me that Barney is for babies. :-(  But, that doesn't stop Arabella from watching Barney on television and with the countless DVDs we purchased for Savannah.  While Savannah tells me she is done with Barney, she still stays in the living room when Bella is watching Barney playing with her toys.  And, every time I glance over in her direction, she is acting like she is playing with her toys, while watching the show. :-)  I think the baby comment had a little something to do with my husband being all Barney'ed out.  After our recent Labor Day 3-hour car ride, he spent two of those hours listening to Barney and friends sing, as the girls had a mini marathon watching some of their favorite Barney DVD's. :-)

While, I, too, like to limit my Barney intake, I can see why the girls like this purple dinosaur so much, and why he has been around for years.  Not only are the songs catchy, but the lessons shared with each episode are great ones for little ones to learn.  In this new 2-DVD set, there are 7 full-length episodes (including the special "Barney's Dino-Mite Birthday), as well as tons of bonus features.  Each of the episodes deal with teamwork, showing the importance of friendship and love, and even reminds children that they are all unique  and special.  

I sat down to watch the 2-DVD set, over a few days with the girls and have to say that they did a good job at selecting which episodes to include on this new DVD set.  All were engaging, and left an opportunity for parents to talk with their little ones after each episode about what they learned and the lessons that were trying to be relayed to them.  Overall, I have to say that this one DVD set I will not hesitate to hit replay on with the girls  Just be warned, you will find yourself singing the songs, including the catchy "I Love You" theme song in the shower, at the 
market, and in the car.  You just can't help it! :-)  They are "Super-Dee-Duper!"
