My 4 year old enjoys the tv show, Bubble Guppies.  We were excited to add it to our family’s movie collection for the first time on DVD.  Especially now that we don’t have the Nickelodeon channel, having Bubble Guppies on DVD gives Sam a chance to watch one of his favorite shows over and over again.  A big thanks goes out to Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment for this DVD review opportunity on The Mommy-Files.

I received a copy of “Bubble Guppies” on DVD from Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.
