Review- Barney: Movie Pack 3 DVD Set

Review by Veronica

As I sat with my 2 year old to review the Barney Movie Pack 3 Dvd Set, I wondered how long this purple dinosaur has been around.  I knew it had been a while and that he was not popular when I was a a little kid.  Turns out that a woman from Dallas created Barney in 1987. The show was popular in parts of Texas for several years until PBS picked it up in 1992. It's been a sensation ever since!

My son and I are just discovering him now. We were getting ready for a trip to Texas when I was asked to review the DVD's.   I was at Smith's the other day and realized this set of DVD's retails for about $17.00.  You can also get it from Amazon for $14.49.

These DVD's distributed via HIT Entertainment and Lionsgate and adorable, educational and keep the interest of a 2 year old! This Movie pack is new material that just came out last month.  It takes you through an adventure with Barney and his friends as they travel to the Rainforest, learn the ABCs and take a vacation to exotic lands.  Luckily my son is drawn to anything having to do with Spanish and ABC's.  These DVD's helped to keep him engaged all while learning a little something new.

The movies included tell tales of the gang in a rainforest observing insects, animals and the plant life. The bonus features in this DVD include a match game and growing your own garden!  The other DVD as mentioned above helps with the ABC's.  The gang engages everyone in coming up with an animal that starts with each letter of the alphabet.  They made up only one animal: for the letter U: Unicorn!  My favorite one was the DVD about going on vacation.  After all, that is what my family and I were about to do!  Barney shows us how to pack a suitcase and how to sing a few songs in Spanish.

A totally recommended DVD set for a great price!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
