Go, Diego, Go! – Freddie the Fruit Bat Saves Halloween!

It’s Halloween!  Diego, Alicia, and Freddie the fruit bat are setting up trick-or-treating booths for all the animals when suddenly they hear a cry for help.  Diego uses Click to try and see what animals are in trouble and finds out it’s the llamas!  They were bringing goodie bags to the Rescue Center when suddenly a bridge broke.  Amigos, we’ve got to fix the bridge so that the llamas can bring the treats to our party!  ¡Al rescate!

Yo Gabba Gabba – Halloween

It’s time for the Yo Gabba gang to dress up in outrageous costumes and take part in gathering their own private stash of candy.  “The Fall Song” celebrates the changing seasons, while the “Halloween Party Song” and “Trick-or-Treat Song” shows kids what happens on Halloween.  “Too Much Candy” helps showcase that eating candy in moderation is best.  Come sing along to these great tunes!

Blue’s Clues – What is Blue Afraid of?

Blue is scared and we play Blue’s Clues to determine what’s frightening her.  As we search for clues, we investigate shadows and conceptualize what objects are making them; decipher extreme close-up photos taken by Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper; and label the source of scary sounds within a haunted house!

Ni Hao, Kai-lan – Ni Hao, Halloween

Trick or treat, it’s Halloween!  Kai-lan and her friends dress up to go trick or treating with YeYe.  Kai-lan is a dinosaur, Tolee’s a panda, Hoho’s the Monkey King, and Rintoo is his favorite – a dragon!  But just when they set out to trick or treat, Rintoo sprains his ankle and realizes that means he can’t go trick or treating.  It’s up to you and Kai-lan to make things better for Rintoo, so that he can have an amazing Halloween.

MY THOUGHTS

My boys loved this DVD because it included Halloween (one of their favorite holidays), as well as some of their favorite Nick Jr. cartoons, such as “Go, Diego, Go,” “Dora the Explorer,” “Blue’s Clues,” and others!  I love the Nickelodeon DVDs that celebrate holidays with the different Nick Jr. characters.  This is definitely a Halloween DVD to own for your kids.
