My boys love to watch The Backyardigans…and I admit I love to watch it as well.  I often find myself singing along with the boys or just enjoying the show!  On October 5th, Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment released The Backyardigans: Christmas With the Backyardigans on DVD.


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.  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. 

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.
