Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood builds on Fred Rogers’ pioneering PBS children’s series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. These engaging stories help children develop the important social & emotional skills necessary for school and for life. As preschoolers and their families follow Daniel’s everyday adventures, they learn fun & practical strategies and skills for growing & learning.
My grandson is 14 months old and is now just starting to sit and watch preschool related television shows and videos. For this review we were sent 2 complimentary Daniel Tiger DVDs which I’m excited to tell you about today.
You Are Special Daniel Tiger! DVD features 8 different stories to keep your child entertained. On this DVD are: You are Special, Daniel is Special, No Red Sweater for Daniel, Teacher Harriet’s New Hairdo, Same & Different, Tutu All The Time, Daniel Thinks of Others and Daniel Thinks of What Margaret Needs. Total running time is 110 minutes, so each episode/story is the proper length for a preschooler.
Daniel’s Winter Wonderland DVD features 4 different stories on one DVD for a total running time of 60 minutes. On this DVD you’ll find the following stories/episodes: A Snowy Day, Daniel’s Winter Adventure, Neighborhood Nutcracker and Baking Mistakes.
My Thoughts: Over a period of 2 1/2 weeks I sat down with my 14 month old grandson and 7 year old granddaughter, so that we could watch several of these Daniel Tiger video episodes. I had never heard of Daniel Tiger until this review & feature, so I was super excited to be introduced to the series.
My 14 month old grandson is really starting to get into sitting still and watching short TV shows and videos. I was really surprised that he sat still for multiple episodes in a row and that they totally held his attention. Matter of fact, I caught him laughing & smiling several times and trust me, at 14 months of age, I really don’t think he got the whole gist of what he was laughing about, but it sure was fun watching him do it. As time goes on and he ages a little bit, I’m sure he’ll be able to comprehend the story lines & characters. My 7 year old granddaughter really enjoyed the episodes and it was her first time meeting these characters. As a grandmother, I really appreciate quality children’s programming like this and would LOVE to see even more programming directed towards young kids that’s educational & enriching. These videos are adorable and I’m happy to have them in my grandchildren’s video collection.
