The Backyardigans: Christmas with the Backyardigans DVD Review



So I ordered a Christmas wreath online and was playing Christmas music all morning. It’s not even Halloween yet and although I wait until closer to Thanksgiving to start my holiday decorations and spirit, I am starting a little early this year since I will be full term at Thanksgiving. The recent Backyardigans release has been yet another holiday show I have been watching with my daughter and she is getting really excited about Christmas trees, snow (hopefully we’ll get a little!) and decorations. 


I know I have mentioned this in the past, but I am a Backyardigans fan, because I love how much music they incorporate into the episodes and I enjoy the different genres they expose kids to in a kid-friendly context. The Action Elves is probably our favorite episode so far, but they are all fun, musical and imaginative episodes that aren’t necessarily specific to the holidays so you can enjoy them any time of the year. It is available at your favorite retailer or online on sites like Amazon.com


THE BACKYARDIGANS:



CHRISTMAS WITH THE BACKYARDIGANS

BOOGIE WITH THE BACKYARDIGANS IN THEIR
FIRST-EVER HOLIDAY RELEASE!

Available on DVD on Oct. 5, 2010


NEW YORK – Sept. 1, 2010 – When Abominable Snowmen Tyrone and Austin take Santa’s magic sack, it’s up to the heroic Action Elves to use their terrific toy-building talents to get the sack back on this brand new DVD, The Backyardigans: Christmas With The Backyardigans. Featuring four new-to-DVD episodes, preschoolers will be introduced to different music genres and instruments including Memphis Soul, Society Band, Hootenanny and even a Balalaika Orchestra. Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment, The Backyardigans: Christmas With The Backyardigans DVD hits shelves Oct. 5, 2010, for the suggested retail price of $16.99.

In every episode of The Backyardigans, five high-spirited neighbors meet in their adjoining backyards and use their imaginations to transform themselves into different locations for epic adventures. Each half-hour episode of this Emmy® Award-winning show features a unique music/dance genre with four original songs, along with real choreographed movements recreated in animation.
