I was super excited when kaboom! Entertainment asked us over on the How to Shop for Free blog to do this Berenstain Bears review! On May 21, 2013, they released two limited edition DVD sets and sent us a copy of each to watch, play with, and review.
When I was younger I had tons of Berenstain Bears books and sadly, I think we must have gotten rid of them somewhere as the years went, by but my almost-3-year-old daughter has recently developed a love for the Berenstain Bears herself having seen their shows on TV.
You should have seen the look on her face when we opened the big box that arrived from kaboom! and she was able to see what was inside! Actually... I'll let you see it!
There really are no words... in fact, I'm not sure any review of these products I might write would communicate quite what that picture does!
As you can see from the pictures, there are two sets available, The Berenstain Bears: Golden Brother Edition and Golden Sister Edition. Each comes with a 120 minute DVD and a 10-inch soft cuddly Berenstain Bear plush. Each DVD includes several short stories about the Berenstain Bears family adventures and the lessons they learn along the way. They are easily applicable to real life and are not only entertaining but full of healthy values. Young children are sponges - they soak in whatever they are exposed to. I have no worries about my daughter being exposed to what is included in these DVDs!
We have really enjoyed these sets! Although my daughter does not typically watch the entire 120 minutes in one sitting, this is definitely her go-to television viewing right now and she'll watch a few stories and come back for more later. She sings along with the catchy songs and has been heard saying on more than one occasion in real life situations, "just like on the Berenstain Bears movie!"
If you are looking for a new DVD for your little ones or are in the market for a great gift for someone else, you should definitely check these out. These limited edition sets are $19.99 and available exclusively at Walmart and Sam's Club stores.
