Nickelodeon Favorites: Dance to the Music DVD Available Now!!!

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! Wonder Pets is my personal favorite. (Nickelodeon’s top-rated preschool show Bubble Guppies is making its DVD premiere in this collection and as an added bonus kids can enjoy two Bubble Guppies karaoke music videos)


Nickelodeon Favorites: Dance to the Music! Synopses:

Dora the Explorer – “La Maestra de Música”
Boots’ music teacher (la maestra de música) needs to get to school in a hurry but her bicycle is broken.  Dora and Boots join her on a musical adventure through the town, over Musical Mountain, and finally to the school just in time to greet the students with a song.

Team Umizoomi – “Butterfly Dance
Milli can’t wait to go see her friend Sophia dance in her school play, “The Big Bug Show,” but the Umi Team learns that Sophia’s butterfly costume is missing some parts!  Milli, Geo, and Bot zoom to Sophia’s school to find the matching wing, discover a pattern of jewels to make the costume sparkle, and track down Sophie’s lost antennae.

Bubble Guppies – “We Totally Rock”
Are you ready to rock?  The Bubble Guppies are totally amped and they’re taking it to the stage.  Get ready to learn everything about rock and roll.

Go Diego, Go! – “The Iguana Sing-Along”
The Iguana sing-along is about to start but one of the iguanas is missing.  Iggy the Iguana is lost inside a cold cave and iguanas can’t move in the cold.  Diego races against the setting sun to get Iggy back home in time for the sing-along!

The Wonder Pets! – “Save the Beetles / Fiddler Crab on the Roof”
The Wonder Pets journey to Liverpool to save a band of mop-haired Beetles who are trapped in a Yellowish Submarine.
In their next adventure, The Wonder Pets travel to a small village in old Russia to save a Fiddler Crab on the roof of a small house. 

Ni Hao, Kai-lan –“The Ants Dance
Today there’s a big talent show in the backyard. Kai-lan and her band are excited to play their new song, and to see the ants perform the big dance number. But when a bossy ant makes all the choices about the dance routine, Kai-lan needs the viewer’s help to convince the ant to let everyone have a choice so the show can go on!

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.

Family Time Factor:  Even though it's geared towards preschoolers, I find that younger and older kids can enjoy it too.  And adults can learn some interesting stuff watching it!
