The first was a DVD of one of Gabrielle and Alaina's must-see shows, Yo Gabba Gabba, called Let's Visit the Doctor.
If you haven't seen this episode, the doctor in question is played by none other than Anthony Bourdain! When Toodee gets sick, he treats her and all of the Gabbaland pals rally around her with chicken soup and fairytale stories to keep her entertained. In addition to the "Doctor" episode, this DVD also contains "Teeth", "Car" and "Clean." Gaby and Alaina love all things Gabba and who am I kidding? So do I! "Clean" actually features my favorite musical guests from YGG - Chromeo performing "Nice N Clean." It's a hoot!
We also got to check out Nickelodeon Favorites: Brothers & Sisters.
This DVD includes six episodes from five different series - Dora the Explorer, Go Diego, Go!, The Wonder Pets, Blues Clues and Ni Hao, Kai-lan - which all focus on the relationship between siblings, welcoming new family members and working out conflicts between sisters and brothers. It's a great mix of shows that keeps my girls thoroughly entertained, and with a running time of two hours, it's the perfect DVD for our upcoming trip!
Up next? Dora's Ballet Adventures, which features four dance and music-themed episodes from Dora the Explorer.
From Boots's birthday to Dora's first dance recital, there's lots of fun to be had here!
Switching gears, we also received The Backyardigans: We Arrrr Pirates, four exciting adventures that find the singing and dancing pals hitting the high seas:
As well as SpongeBob Squarepants: The Great Patty Caper.
On this 89-minutes DVD, SpongeBob and his friend Patrick have to work together to solve the Krabby Patty recipe caper and Mr. Krabs tries to handle Pearl’s appetite and Plankton uses a new disguise to get his hands on the Krabby Patty formula. There's also some fun bonus material in “The Great Patty Shorts.”
You can purchase Yo Gabba Gabba: Let's Visit the Doctor and Nickelodeon Favorites: Brothers & Sisters now on Amazon.com, and Dora's Ballet Adventures is currently available exclusively at Target. The Backyardigans: We Arrrr Pirates and SpongeBob Squarepants: The Great Patty Caper will both hit stores on March 8, 2011.
I watched the first two DVDs with Gabrielle and Alaina, who thoroughly enjoyed every second of them. The last three I've chosen to give away to one lucky AFOMFT reader!
