OUR THOUGHTS (Written by Christie S.)

We really, really enjoyed Clifford The Big Red Dog. My kids danced to the theme song. I asked my 4 year old, what her favorite character was and why? She said Clifford was her favorite, because she could climb and play on him, ride him like a horse. And he can also help me reach for things.

I received a sample of “Clifford the Big Red Dog: Best Buddies” on DVD from Lionsgate Home Entertainment to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.
