This video is unlike any others. Joe doesn't go through all of the "routine" pieces as in other shows. There isn't "mail time". The clues are animated and actually sing and talk. Joe doesn't actually "draw" these clues. The second video is "numbers everywhere" and it is really more of a high level preschool show. The counting is up to 100. My child was turned off without all of the traditional "blue's clues" events.

For me, to have those on DVD, with Steve whom my 3 year old loves makes this DVD worth the price of admission. While Joe is pretty good, Steve has a quality that makes preschoolers feel like he is talking just to them! The ABC's episode is fantastic for a three and up, as a 2 year old, it went above his head, and what they asked them to understand was too much, but now, on DVD he loved it and was able to participate right along -- they need to recognize first letters of words maybe to truly appreciate it. The 123s episode is wonderful, teaches counting, addition, subtraction, more, haven't even watched the Joe episodes in 3 viewings.
