Nickelodeon Favorites: Happy Halloween DVD Review

I just love when Nickelodeon comes out with these compilation DVDs.  This way my kids feel as though they are actually watching the cartoons as they would be shown on TV in the mornings.  The line up is fantastic and there is not one show on it that my kids don't like!

Now, add this to the fact that holiday DVDs are favorites around my house.  It gets the kids excited for the next holidays.  Okay, so it gets me excited about them too.  I'm dying for October!! 

Happy Halloween contains the following episodes:

Dora the Explorer - Boo!
It’s Halloween, and Dora and Boots are out trick-or-treating when a cute Little Monster surprises them.  Dora and Boots must embark on a spooky journey to help Little Monster hurry home before the arrow on the big clock strikes 12 – and in time for a Halloween party!

Go Diego, Go! - Freddie the Fruit Bat Saves Halloween!
It’s Halloween! Diego, Alicia and Freddie the fruit bat are setting up trick-or-treating booths for all the animals when suddenly they hear a cry for help. Diego uses Click to try and see what animals are in trouble and finds out it’s the llamas! They were bringing goodie bags to the Rescue Center when suddenly a bridge broke.  Amigos, we’ve got to fix the bridge so that the llamas can bring the treats to our party! ¡Al rescate! 
Wonder Pets! - Save the Bat / Save the Acting Donkey
Save the Bat
The Wonder Pets travel to Transylvania to help a Baby Bat who is afraid of the dark.
Save the Acting Donkey
The Wonder Pets head to the Old Globe Theatre in England to help a Shakespearian-actor Donkey who is not prepared for his performance.

Yo Gabba Gabba - Halloween
It’s time for the Yo Gabba gang to dress up in outrageous costumes and take part in gathering their own private stash of candy.  “The Fall Song” celebrates the changing seasons, while the “Halloween Party Song” and “Trick-or-Treat Song” teaches shows kids what happens on Halloween. “Too Much Candy” helps showcase that eating candy in moderation is best.  Come sing along to these great tunes!

Blue's Clues - What is Blue Afraid of?
Blue is scared and we play Blue’s Clues to determine what’s frightening her. As we search for clues, we investigate shadows and conceptualize what objects are making them; decipher extreme close-up photos taken by Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper; and label the source of scary sounds within a haunted house!

Ni Hao, Kai-lan – Ni Hao, Halloween
Trick or treat, it’s Halloween!  Kai-lan and her friends dress up to go trick or treating with YeYe. Kai-lan is a dinosaur, Tolee’s a panda, Hoho’s the Monkey King, and Rintoo is his favorite – a dragon! But just when they set out to trick or treat, Rintoo sprains his ankle and realizes that means he can’t go trick or treating. It’s up to you and Kai-lan to make things better for Rintoo, so that he can have an amazing Halloween.

But seriously, when they say that Nick, Jr. is like preschool on TV, they are not kidding.  My kids learn so much from watching these shows that it amazes me!  Each show features different learning skills and techniques.  And now they can get ready for Halloween too!!

Nickelodeon Favorites: Happy Halloween is available on DVD today!!!
