Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

I have been impressed with the recent kid/family friendly DVDs that have been released from Cinedigm Entertainment.  Not only are these releases great for the entire family to watch together, but all of the television shows to DVD series are perfect for preschoolers.  Thanks to the kind folks at Cinedigm Entertainment, they recently sent two new DVD releases from the hit animated shows, "Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs," which airs on Qubo Channel for the girls and I to enjoy together


Synopsis:
"Harry is the luckiest kid in the world when his Nana gives him something no one else has: a bucket with six Dinosaur toys that come to life and are his best friends!
Harry and his dinosaur pals are called to the rescue in Dino World to help free a beached dolphin, find a scared little kitten and even help dig up Mom’s lost car keys. With a little luck and a lot of imagination they save the day!"
8 EPISODES:
1. But I Like Mud!
2. It’s a Kitty!
3. I Wish It Would Stop Raining

Up until a recent channel lineup switch, we had been getting the Qubo Channel, and would tune in to watch Harry and his dinosaur toys (which come to life) help save animals, find missing things like Mom's keys, and so much more.  Harry has a big imagination, and it is nice to see the girls get into the show like they did, as they would pretend afterwards that their toys would be able to come alive and they helped me find missing them (that they would hide and find), or just show their toys how much they loved them.  While we no longer get this channel in our cable lineup (hopefully they will add it back soon), the girls and I can finally get back to enjoying "Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs" whenever we want, thanks to these new DVD releases from Cinedigm Entertainment.
The two DVDs I was sent to review each contained 8 full-length episodes from this animated series.  With a total DVD run time of only 88 minutes, this makes for each episode to only be about 10-12 minutes in length.  I don't know about you, but I love short episodes, as they not only keep the youngest of kids' attention, but are great when you are trying to entertain little ones, but also want to manage the amount of time they spend watching television.  I will usually put on an episode from this DVD in the AM while I am prepping breakfast, and then we will watch another as the girls eat.  
If you haven't had a chance to catch this animated series on television, and have little ones who love dinosaurs (both boys and girls), this would be a great DVD to pick up and share with them. Like I said, Harry has a big imagination, and the adventures he goes on with his 6 dino pals in Dino World.  My girls can't get enough of this show, and I can't wait to pick up additional DVDs as they become available.  And, speaking of additional DVDs in this series, there is also another "Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs" DVD which also released back on 2/11/2014, which you can also pick up for only $9.95.  Here is more information on this release:
