On February 8th, Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment will release Sisters and Brothers on DVD.  The DVD includes 5 fun episodes featuring the characters from Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego, Go!, Blue’s Clues, Wonder Pets!, and Ni Hao, Kai-lan.  The DVD will be available for purchase on February 8th, retailing for $16.99.


Dora the Explorer – Big Sister Dora

Dora has some really exciting news: someone new is joining Dora’s family! Someone who sleeps in a cradle, drinks from a bottle, wears diapers, and likes to be rocked to sleep.  Dora’s Mami is having a baby! Maybe it’s a boy…or maybe it’s a girl. Dora and Boots have to get home quickly to find out!

Go, Diego, Go! – To Babysit a Bobo

The Bobos’s are on their way to the Spider Monkey Fiesta with their 3 new Baby Bobo Sisters.  And as the Bobos search for fruit for the party, the restless Bobo Sisters speed off into the forest to look for fruit without them!

Blue’s Clues – The Baby’s Here!

While waiting for Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper to call from the hospital with news of the new baby here, Paprika prepares to be a big sister.  Looking at baby books gives everyone a chance to learn about what they were like when they were really little.

Wonder Pets! – KalamaZoo! / Back to KalamaZoo!

Ming-Ming visits her Aunt Eleanora at the local petting zoo during a school holiday.  Eleanora asks Ming-Ming to take care of her toddler cousin, Marvin, for the afternoon.  Ming-Ming thinks this will be a “piece-of-cake” but Marvin proves to be quite a spirited little Duck.  Ming-Ming must learn to look beyond her own needs and find the patience and compassion to take care of Marvin.

Ni Hao, Kai-lan – Hoho’s Big Flight

On the day of the big lantern festival to celebrate the end of Chinese New Year, Grampa gives Kai-lan some lanterns for her and her friends to decorate.  But when Hoho’s lantern flies away, he jumps on it, and everyone goes on a big chase to get him down!
