Barney & Friends: Egg-Cellent Adventures




Could you jam a great big purple dinosaur into your Easter basket this year? Maybe a slightly smaller green or yellow dinosaur? Every year I am faced with the same dilemma - should I fill the baskets up with cheap candy or try to find seasonal items that won't rot their teeth without cluttering up the house? This DVD is the perfect solution for the younger set. At $14.98, it won't break the bank and is certain to provide more hours of enjoyment than a bag of speckled chocolate eggs. Well, better for kids anyway - just set those eggs aside for yourself as a pat on the back for being such a clever basket filler.

Even if moms and dads aren't the Barney biggest fans, they can always trust him to deliver a wholesome message. The big guy always comes through with a dancing and singing display that puts sharing and caring at the forefront of every episode. Did you know that this Emmy award-winning series (I didn't!) is one of the top-rated preschool shows today?

You know, I'm not a huge Barney fan, but I will admit he does teach valuable lessons. I don't have a clue what it is about his demeanor that makes the kids flock to him so eagerly, but he's onto something there. Make Easter "super-dee-duper" by giving your chidlren an Easter spectacular that includes Mother Goose, a nest full of eggs, and a mysterious, carrot-eating visitor.

Episodes include: Rabbits, Mother Goose, Ducks and Fish. DVD special features: Barney’s Easter Egg Hunt, Gumdrops Matching Game.
