5.0 out of 5 stars Yay for Miffy! Aug. 20 2004
By A Customer
I recently got the Miffy's Playtime DVD for my 17th birthday (yes, my 17th)! I know this DVD is intended for children age 2 to 6, but it is so sweet, and so innocent, that it is one of my favorite shows. I really love Miffy and Friends because it is cute, short, and it reminds me of when I was younger. I also liked the two bonus episodes from the original 2D animated TV show, and I also think it is good that the DVD has math games to teach preschoolers. The only disadvantage is that this DVD is not bilingual (English/ French), because then it can't be easily sold across Canada. I would like to see more Miffy DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Introduction to The World of The Tube Jan. 19 2005
By Jaylyn - Published on Amazon.com
Not to imply that television needs its own introduction for children, but since the TV was crafted, human's have been watching it. Everyone needs a half hour or so to sit and either be informed, entertained and in todays world even shocked in the comfort of their own home. There's nothing wrong with watching TV and the time in a day is very long for a toddler, even longer for the parent chasing after one. So if you need to prepare dinner, read the paper, or even just sit down and day dream, this is the perfect video to get that slight, however much needed break from finger painting and reading that one book twenty times. First, I believe this is called stop animation, which is more enjoyable and easier for children to watch rather than the fast flashing of most cartoons. Then there's the narrartor, a soft, pleasant woman's voice which tells each story in the right of amount expression, like Alec Baldwin's voice in the Thomas The Tank Engine series. The same, familiar, sunny voice that draws children to the story. Also the stories are short, the music is happy, the characters are diverse and very thoughtful of each other. The little animal families are ones all children will relate to as there's the only child, Miffy, with her mother and father, Grunty the Pig who lives with his Aunt Poppy, Boris and Barbara Bear who are married, but with no kids and all of Miffy's classmates and friends.
Then there are the brief breaks between each story which poses more of a word problem, for example, instead of just counting three flowers, three birds and three worms the child is asked after counting three flowers and three birds, if there's one worm under each flower how many worms are there. Which isn't going to make your child a wizard at math, but for a childrens video, I feel this is a more creative approach to the vidoes educational value.
Nothing is more important that reading to your child and taking your child out to the park or your neighborhood recreation center to educate and stimulate your childs mind. But I will admitt I'd rather my young child say Miffy is their favorite program than that big, purple, goofey and borderline frightening phoney dinosaur. Just for an option.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love Miffy!! Dec 1 2005
By Mom, Me. - Published on Amazon.com
Miffy & friends has to be the cutest and sweetest show on television. I was very happy to see this dvd -- once or twice a day on Noggin just isn't enough sometimes. My 18 month old son loves to dance along to the theme song. He's been a big fan since about 12 months old.

I think the reason *I* like Miffy so much because she reminds me of Hello Kitty. (another childhood fav of mine!)

My 4 1/2 year old son loves the Miffy show on Noggin. But the show is only on once or twice in the morning. This DVD could not have come soon enough for me. I only hope that noggin puts out more miffy DVD's in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innocent and sweet - just like your kids Jan. 3 2007
By Susan ZM - Published on Amazon.com
We first watched Miffy on cable - Noggin. My then 18 month old loved it and we got a DVD for when we were travelling for a month. Although he barely watched the DVD on vacation, he loves watching Miffy. The show is simple and easy for kids to follow, and focuses on fun, friendship, love, school, grandparents, etc.

Other good shows are Maisy (books are also great for 1 year old) and Blues Clues.
