Overview: It's a snowy day in the Neighborhood, and Daniel Tiger can't wait to play outside!

Join Daniel in the snow with these four grr-ific tales!
DVD Verdict: For those not in the know, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood is an American-Canadian animated children's television series produced by The Fred Rogers Company, 9 Story Media Group and Out of the Blue Enterprises. It debuted on most PBS stations on September 3, 2012. The program, which is targeted at preschool-aged children, is based on the Neighborhood of Make-Believe from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, the long-running family-oriented television series created and hosted by Fred Rogers.
My five-year old grandson totally LOVES this DVD, and I think it's cute too. He's watched it several times and never stops trying to imitate Daniel in his quests for figuring things out. He just loves how Daniel has some big adventures out of small things and, inportantly, learns about the world around him with his friends: O the Owl, Miss Elaina, Katerina Kittycat, and Prince Wednesday by his side. Oh, and lest we forget his loving and caring parents, Mr and Mrs Tiger!
What I also love about this show is that all his friends each have unique personalities and interests, that shows each and every person is special in his or her own way. Each of his friends has their own catch phrase which is just waaaaaaaay too cute, of course!
In closing, 'Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood - Daniel's Winter Wonderland' is three episodes of adventure and fun, and is, without a shadow of a doubt, absolutely charming and a real BIG hit with my grandchildren, as mentioned. It's also a hit with daughters-in-law who remember watching Mr. Rogers and all the characters in the neighborhood. Very "gentle" and offering learning moments, Daniel Tiger is just what your restless kids ordered, trust me! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the following four (4) episodes:
