about our reviews:
All reviews at Edutaining Kids are independent, impartial reviews. Children's video and DVD reviews are designed to help parents and caregivers decide which movies and videos are right for their kids. Evaluations and ratings are based on factors that include educational and entertainment value, originality, and age-appropriateness.

Blue's 10 year anniversary is celebrated in the DVD release of Blue's Biggest Stories. Eight favorite episodes from the popular series are showcased, as well as a never-before-released episode entitled "Magenta Gets Glasses". Some bonus features, including two Blue's Room shorts, round out this fun package that commemorates--and follows the evolution of--the preschooler series quite nicely.  

The DVD features key episodes from Blue's early days with Steve, including favorites Blue's Birthday, Pajama Party, and Blue's Treasure Hunt. Pivotal episodes are featured--Steve Goes to College is the transitional episode when Steve leaves and Joe replaces him, for example.

The screenshot above is from another transitional episode entitled The Legend of the Blue Puppy, in which Moona (the Moon fairy) tells the story of the smart little blue puppy--and why he's special. In this episode, Blue makes his transition from yelping puppy to talking puppy for Blue's Room.

Whether the episode is from its early days or more current, preschoolers learn diverse facts, such as "why is it dark at night?" and skills, such as how to handle the first day at school. As always, the message is positive and promotes enthusiasm for learning.

This DVD will be a welcome addition to a preschooler's DVD library. Running time: 196 minutes.

 

 

Best For: Ages 3-5.
