Always a favourite with the kids, it's a treat for adults to watch too. These songs stay with you and all Backyardigans stories are so teachable after. This one is fantastic and it has always been a favourite in our house
Sadly we have now come to the end of this wonderful musical series created by Janice Burgess. We own all five DVDs, and the first one "It's Great to be a Ghost" is still a regular on our play list, as are the others.
This one has four episodes as usual, two of which were also included in the Nick Jr Favorites DVDs. The list for this one is:
Surf's Up: Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua brush up their "rad" surfing moves in order to ride the perfect wave at Tiki Beach, but who is that mysterious lifeguard?
Riding the Range: Tyrone is on his way to Texas, and meets up with Pablo, Uniqua and Tasha who're tracking down a jump-rope bandit.
Race to the Tower of Power: Two supervillains battle it out with two superheroes for possession of the Key to the World and with it, world domination. Whahahahhahaha!!
The Quest for Flying Rock: Four explorers quibble over the directions on a mysterious map, and end up having an obstacle race.
This series is highly recommended for children of all ages, and is one of the most imaginative and entertaining at the moment. If some of the other shows make you want to put on earplugs and run out of the room, you'll find this one a refreshing change.
daughter loves it! They sing and dance a lot which is why I think it is a hit. Out of all the kid cartoons this is one that I can actually stand. Sadly they don't make them anymore so finding other paraphernalia is usually difficult (dolls, party supplies etc).
