PBS Holiday Fun

My kiddos love PBS!  I remember when Brandon was younger I could tell when Barney came on by his cheers and over the top excitement. 
I have to admit as a mom I get excited too by their kid friendly shows that promote learning and fun in the perfect blend!
This Holiday Season PBS is offering several DVD's that would be perfect for gifts or stocking stuffers :).
I personally was able to choose two review and share with you.

Caillou: Caillou’s Family Favorites DVD + Book 

 For 25 years, Caillou has been inspiring generations of preschool children to grow emotionally and to explore the world around them by learning, having fun, and using their imagination. Join Caillou in celebrating his 25th anniversary with this fun-filled family DVD and double storybook collection. Fans of the popular series can purchase this special anniversary DVD and book gift set for holiday gift giving. 
The gift set features the DVD “Caillou’s Family Favorites,” which includes four episodes (14 adventures), and a 48-page beautifully illustrated “Caillou’s Family Favorites DVD + Book” which became available on October 14. 
The DVD run time is approximately 100 minutes. 

Caillou and his family have been coming to my living room since Brandon Jr was only 2.  It was the first time I've ever seen this lovable little boy and his family.  I was instantly charmed by his good manners and the way he got to know the world around him.  I wasn't the only one, what started off as a random show to a 2 year old has over the years become a favorite to Brandon Jr.  he even pulls Youtube up on his Kindle and tries to watch episodes with his brother (Quinn)
Any Caillou fans are sure to love this DVD and book collection.

Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs in the Snow DVD + Figurine 

 The perfect present for any DINOSAUR TRAIN fan, this new gift set includes the DVD “Dinosaurs in the Snow,” featuring eight adventures, and a figurine of everyone’s DINOSAUR TRAIN embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both Dinosaurs and trains while sparking an interest in life science, natural history, and paleontology. Join Buddy and his friends and family on eight learning adventures as they celebrate Winter Solstice.
 “Dinosaurs in the Snow DVD + Figurine” became available on October 28. 
The DVD run time is approximately 120 minutes.

I wont fib, even I plop down in front of the TV to watch this!  There is always so many fun Dino facts.  At 27 it is pretty impressive when I can learn something from a cartoon.
Buddy and his family get to explore not just their time zone, but also all the others (That dinos lived in) thanks to the Dinosaur Train.
This Holiday DVD is filled with fun winter themed episodes and my boys and I both enjoyed it.

Both DVDs show PBS at their best, these shows are fun and promote family.  I loved watching them with my boys and know other kiddos would adore seeing these under the tree this holiday season!
