Here on the wonderful 'Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood - Double Feature' we get two features: 'Daniel Goes Camping' and 'Tiger Family Trip.'
In 'Daniel Goes Camping,' its a beautiful night in Daniel Tigers Neighborhood! Bring your jammies and come along as Daniel Tiger camps outdoors for the first time and experiences everything that makes nighttime special.
From twinkling stars and playing with flashlights, to singing Goodnight Sun, there's something magical and wondrous about the night!
In the three stories featured on this DVD, join Daniel as he goes camping with O the Owl and Dad Tiger, has a royal sleepover at Prince Wednesday’s castle, and goes on a nighttime walk through his neighborhood!
In the stories “Backyard Camping” and “Daniel’s Sleepover,” Daniel and his friends learn that when something is scary it’s best to “see what it is, you might feel better.” Using this strategy, Daniel learns that items that look scary at first can turn out to be fun.
In the third story on this DVD, “Nighttime in the Neighborhood” (extended adventure) which is an extended adventure, Daniel is going to a pajama party at the library. While the family walks to the library, Daniel learns what’s special about nighttime.
From pretending to play with the stars, to encountering fireflies, a nightingale, and crickets, Daniel and his family have a grr-ific time as they make their way to the library for games and a story.
In 'Tiger Family Trip,' it's time for a family road trip to see Grandpere! Join the Tiger Family as they sing and play games, enjoy a dinosaur themed playground, and explore a butterfly garden on their way to Grandpere's house.
This grr-ific DVD also includes stories that feature Daniel going to a carnival, watching fireworks, and setting up a lemonade stand with Prince Wednesday.
This sweet story will ring true with anyone who's attempted traveling with a preschooler in tow, and kids no doubt can commiserate with Daniel's fluctuating emotions over the journey.
He's excited, he's impatient, he gets frustrated with his little sister, he has to be reminded to take a potty break, and so on and so forth.
Happily, though, his parents are ever attentive with activities to keep him occupied, and Daniel winds up enjoying the trip almost as much as he loves getting to Grandpere's house.
There are occasions for preschool skills like color recognition and simple counting practice as well as positive character traits like patience and obedience.
Even more prominent from beginning to end is the story's reminder of the value of trying new things, which Daniel does with the help of his parents and his kindly Grandpere.
My 2-year old grandson LOVES this show! He is rarely still, but will sit through entire episodes of Daniel Tiger, responding to questions, singing along, and giving me "Ugga- mugga" kisses. He even has a "Tigey" he sleeps with! So, what more could you want?! These are all Widescreen Presentations (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
