Editorial Reviews

Rise and shine with Bear and his friends in the Big Blue House for three comfy, cozy episodes that encourage proper rest, consideration for others, and help your child become more self-reliant! In "A Winter's Nap," everybody wants Bear's attention, and all he wants is some rest! A new day dawns for the gang in the Big Blue House in "Morning Glory," and Tutter wants to stay up and play when Bear says it's time to "Go To Sleep," because everyone knows there's fun morning, noon, and night in the Big Blue House!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Early Bear Gets the... Worm? October 1, 2005
"Early to Bed, Early to Rise" is another in a series of "Bear in the Big Blue House" video releases ported to DVD. This DVD includes two episodes from the video release --- "Go to Sleep" and "Morning Glory" and adds in "A Winter's Nap."

"Go to Sleep"

Ojo stays over for the night at the Big Blue House. Bear helps her to get to sleep and then decides to turn in himself, when the doorbell rings. It turns out that his friends Jeremiah and Doc Hog have shown up for a card game, which Bear completely forgot about. Now Bear has to take care of them, while also seeing that Ojo isn't disturbed, as well as Tutter, who's sleeping in his mousehole. Featuring a great song from Shadow, "Rockabye," about how shadows watch over you at night.

"Morning Glory"

Bear helps everybody in the Big Blue House to get up in the morning after a sleepover, but some have more trouble rising than others. Once everybody is up, though, they're ready and raring for morning activities --- but not before enjoying a nice breakfast. Treelo just wants to play, play, play, but Bear and everyone else manage to convince him that it would be better to have some breakfast first. Featuring an old-favorite "Bear in the Big Blue House" song --- "Brush Brush Bree."

"A Winter's Nap"

Winter has come to Woodland Valley and Bear would like nothing more than a nice nap. However, he never quite seems to make it to the nap, as he has to help out his friends in the Big Blue House. Sleep evades Bear, but his friends have a nice surprise for him.

Like all of the other "Bear in the Big Blue House" DVDs, there aren't really any good special features on this. You only get the option to jump to songs from the episodes and previews for other Disney TV Shows and movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Safety in the Shadows August 20, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I watch this video almost every day with my 10 month old - it's part of her bedtime routime to watch the nightime episode - and I love to sing Shadow's song to her as we watch it - it is such a beautiful song... and my husband loves to sing "Good Morning" with her when we wake up... this is by far our favorite Bear video - and we have many! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars 20-month old son loves Ray February 13, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
My son loves Bear and the Big Blue House. Previous videos did not include his favorite character, Ray, enough. This one has a lot of the characters involved in the segments that aren't normally seen. I would recommend Bear to all parents. Each segment usually tries to convey an important lesson to the children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bear Video out there! February 15, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Of all the shows on video, these two shows on this tape are by far the best. The music is phenomenal, and storylines carry a positive, important message. My son now LOVES anything that looks like the sun (Ray, in the show), and already loved the moon (Luna) from other shows.
If you buy any, make sure you get this one! I am now purchasing my second, because the first tape is worn out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of Bear's Best July 12, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Of the eight Bear videos we have purchased, this is our favorite!
I would recommend this tape solely on the basis of the character variety (we get to meet some of Bear's other friends like Ray the sun, Doc Hogg, and Jeremiah the turtle), but that's not what made me want to buy the tape. The most compelling reason to purchase this tape is the beautiful song Shadow sings in the first episode "Go To Sleep". Shadow's stories are usually corny and funny twists on nursery rhymes, but never until now have I been so moved emotionally by any of her scenes. This entirely beautiful song teaches children to be comforted by shadows when they try to go to sleep, not to be frightened by them.
Our 23-month old loves watching Bear, and this is one of his 2 favorite Bear tapes along with volume 1 of the series. We as parents loved this tape as the best of the bunch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD for toddlers! September 6, 2005
This is another excellent DVD in the "Bear in the Big Blue House" series. It has episodes concerning: going to sleep, "Go to Sleep"; starting a brand new day, "Morning Glory"; and napping, "A Winter's Nap".

"Go to Sleep" covers ways to lull yourself off to dreamland, even though you may not think you're tired, and the importance of a good night's sleep for a good day tomorrow.

"Morning Glory introduces Ray, the sun, who sings a good morning song with Bear. The episode incorporates the importance of breakfast, brushing your teeth, how different people take different amounts of time to wake up, getting morning chores done and how having a good morning can influence the rest of your day.

The message on the "A Winter's Nap" episode is a little strange, however. The episode is supposed to be about Bear and Tutter, the mouse, trying to take naps during the day, but neither one can seem to manage it due to various things going on in the house. In the end they both throw in the towel and join in the fun in a "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" mentality. While the rest of the episode talks about naps and how to get cozy and fall asleep, how good they are for you, etc., I really didn't understand the "Oh, well, can't nap? No big deal" message that came out near the end. Other than that though, it was a cute episode.

The character Shadow, whose segments I usually find a little creepy, is more down to earth in these and there are less of the cut-out shadow people scenes and more of Shadow just singing songs.

The DVD couldn't be found available in Australia. Being a Region 1 I wasn't sure it would work in a region 4 but it arrived promptly and works just fine.
