My Thoughts:

What a wonderful DVD set this is.  All of the shows that Savannah watches on the Sprout Channel are included in this jam-packed DVD set.  Savannah especially loves the Angelina Ballerina, Thomas and Friends and Bob the Builder shows.  Today, my daughter and I spent some quality time snuggled on the couch watching the shows, which all celebrate family, love, fun and friendship.  And, for older children who are comprehending lessons found in stories, this is a great DVD to watch together, as each story deals with a lesson, like loyalty, friendship and cooperation. 

Overall, this was a great DVD compilation of some of the best HIT Entertainment shows that are on the air, and I can’t wait to watch this DVD over and over again with my daughter.  We had a great time together, bonding, while enjoying quality entertainment.

Disclosure:  I was sent a copy of this DVD in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
