My Thoughts:

I have lost count of how many books and movies my youngest daughter has of Pinkalicious.  Ever since they started airing the animated series on PBS Kids, she has been hooked, and wants to collect and own all things Pinkalicous and Peterrific.  So, when she saw this new DVD arrive in the mail the other day, she was all smiles.  With Valentine's Day this Friday, she has been decorating the house with her sister, to have a Valentine's Day party at home, where the girls will open 50+ valentines sent from other homeschoolers all over the United States, in addition to making some tasty Valentine's Day snacks to enjoy, after we play Bingo and other fun minute to win it style games.  And, now with this DVD, which contains 5 full-length episodes, we now have a DVD to watch during our party. :-)

The following episodes are included:
  • Pink Love
  • That Unicorn Feeling
  • Star Light, Star Not So Bright
  • Mother's Day Surprise
  • Whale of a Song
When my daughters saw the "Mother's Day Surprise" episode, they told me to make a note of this, so that come May we can watch this episode again for Mother's Day. :-)  We ended up watching this DVD the other day, as the girls wanted to screen the episodes and make sure they were suitable for Valentine's Day. They knew they were, but they wanted an excuse to watch the five episodes, as they looked so good, based on the titles. :-)

If you have a Pinkalicious fan in your life, this DVD would make for a great gift idea for Valentine's Day.  At under $5 for this DVD, you can't go wrong, as you get five full-length episodes, which are all entertaining and fun to watch.  My girls couldn't choose a favorite, as they said they were all so good. :-)  Let's see if your kids can choose a favorite.
The Berenstain Bears: Tree House Tales Volume Two” contains 26 fun-filled tales straight from the family tree house. In this collection, watch what happens when Sister is picked to represent her school in the upcoming jump rope contest. In another contest, pumpkin growing, Papa’s longstanding friendship with Farmer Ben is put to the test during this competition.

Together, these tales cover important topics including patience, making new friends, and being unique.

My Thoughts:

I grew up watching The Berenstain Bears, and having my mom read me the books at bedtime.  And, once I found out I was having children of my own, my mom surprised me with my childhood collection of The Berenstain Bears books she used to read to be, so that I could read them to my girls.  My girls were fans right from the start, and now love all things The Berenstain Bears.  So, when I heard that PBS Distribution was releasing Vol. 2 in the the Tree House Tales series, I jumped at the opportunity to review the DVD, as my girls continue to watch the Vol. 1 release that previously released. I ended up picking up another copy of the Vol. 1 so that the girls could keep a copy in our car to watch while out and out about driving to homeschool classes, as well as keep one at home to watch and enjoy.

With over 5 hours of fun, this new DVD, which is only $8.69 right now on Amazon, makes for a great gift idea for fans of the Berenstain Bears for Valentine's Day, or to pick up now and stash so you can add to your child's Easter basket.

There are so many episodes to list, but I did want to list a handful of standouts that my girls are saying are their favorites...

  • Visit Fun Park
  • Too Much Pressure
  • The Jump Rope Contest
  • The Excuse Note
  • The Big Blooper
  • By the Sea
  • Too Much Vacation
  • The Summer Job

My girls gives this new Vol. 2 Tree House Tales DVD collection two thumbs up, and have been having a blast watching all the episodes, which make up 340 minutes over 2 DVDs.
