All the high-flying fun from the hit Nick Jr.® TV series springs to life this Easter in the  all-new release, “Spring Chicks Time,” available now on DVD, Digital and Video on Demand, from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

In “Spring Chicks Time” ($14.98), the adorable duo, Tommy and Tallulah, celebrate the season with a town picnic, a nature hike and a kite-flying contest! When the mischievous Spring Chicks fly off in one of the kites, the town must save them just in the nick of chime time! In these fair-weather and fun-packed episodes, the Tickety Town team, along with preschool viewers, will learn the importance of teamwork, community and social responsibility.

To help celebrate the release of “Spring Chicks Time,” Anchor Bay has scooped-up an exciting national cross-promotion with Joy Cone. From April 1 through December 31, for $2.50 shipping & handling, consumers who purchase a Joy Cone product and any Tickety Toc DVD can receive two free Tickety Toc books from Scholastic. Color box art from the “Spring Chicks Time” DVD will be featured on 1 million boxes of Joy Cone product as part of the “tick tocktastic” promotion.

Tickety Toc follows the everyday adventures of 6-year-old twins, Tommy and Tallulah. Traveling through the special Tickety Toc clock, where the twins live, audiences enter a CGI world of eclectic characters and tag along on exciting escapades filled with slapstick surprises. Tommy and Tallulah’s strong “can do” spirit often produces an unanticipated outcome, but their individual approach to sticky situations and joint resourcefulness always shine through and save the day! Through the twins’ madcap adventures, Tickety Toc explores teamwork, social responsibility and problem solving – important concepts for preschoolers as they learn and grow. Tickety Toc has quickly become the #1 afternoon show on Nick Jr. (Nielsen) and has been picked up for a second season."

My Thoughts:

Do you have fans of Tickety Toc in your house?  Well, I have two girls who go crazy each and every time Tickety Toc airs on Nick Jr.  The theme song alone is catchy and will have you singing and dancing along to it.  But, what I love best about this animated series, which began last year, is that this show teaches children about teamwork, friendship and how to solve problems.  

Tommy and Tallulah are really thought out characters and the story lines are always engaging for even the youngest of viewers.  While this new DVD is not our first Tickety Toc DVD to own, I do have to say that it is my family's favorite by far.  Maybe the spring feel of the six episodes is what draws my girls in and has them asking to watch this DVD over and over again...Nah, it is the cute adventures that these two twins go on, with so many surprises along the way.  I have lost count on the number of times we have seen these already aired episodes from the hit Nick Jr. animated series.  But, each and every time the girls watch them, they get excited and do a little happy dance. :-)  

Out of the six episodes, my girls keep asking to watch the "Spring Chicks Time" one, which finds Tommy and Tallulah having a kite mishap while babysitting the Spring Chicks. And, to go along with this cute springtime episode, the girls have been enjoying the fun printable activity sheet (see below to print out).  I can't wait until the weather gets nicer so that we can get outdoors and fly kites for the first time with the girls.  Then, we can go on a picnic and enjoy watermelon, just like Tommy and Tallulah were hoping to find in the "Watermelon Time" episode.  Instead, they found a pumpkin -- also great to eat. :-)

So, if your kids love to tune in daily to Nick Jr. to catch twins, Tommy and Tallulah in another adventure-filled episode, then you will want to check out this new release.  Or, pick it up and surprise them on Easter Day with it in their basket. They will have a blast, like my girls are, watching all 6 episodes from the hit animated series Tickety Toc, now available on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment.
