Product Description

Give preschoolers their best start with BEAR IN THE BIG BLUE HOUSE! This award-winning series provides your child with valuable tools for growth in key areas of music, social skill development, and cognitive learning through integrated programs combining music, movement, and exploration.

Celebrate good times with Bear(TM) and all his friends in three party-hearty episodes that teach sharing, encourage self-expression through movement, and reinforce the value of friendship. In "Mouse Party," everyone gets busy preparing for Tutter's(TM) surprise birthday, complete with presents and cake too! A day of peaceful relaxation turns upside down at "Bear's Birthday Bash," and with a few lessons, Tutter's pals have him "Dancin' The Day Away," in this celebration of friendship and caring, bursting at the seams with six sing-along songs!

Amazon.com

Three random episodes make up this first DVD venture for the popular prekindergarten sources from Jim Henson Productions. In "Mouse Party," it's Tutter's birthday, and Bear and his friends are preparing a surprise party for him. In "Bear's Birthday Bash," Bear's plans to relax on his birthday are quickly foiled when his friends plan an ambitious party for him instead. Bear and the gang learn all about frittering away one's troubles in "Dancin' the Day Away." Because music is a particular strength of the series, the inclusion of six sing-along songs is a nice bonus. (Ages 2-5) --Doug Thomas

We love bear in our house and especially on the DVD format. It is the only way to go with kids movies. The added features the DVD verion offers makes it worth the few extra dollars. It has sing a longs and 3 story selections which make it great when you are trying to make a squirmy toddler sit still. Quick and easy and totally cute. My son love the "birthday song" and we had to play it over and over and over again. A good buy with three great episodes.

This review is intended for those who are not familiar with "Bear", and are curious as to what it's about. Growing up with Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, I wanted my child to experience and hopefully enjoy Jim Henson's creations as much as I did. Thankfully, my 2 year old's all-time favorite shows include "Between the Lions" on PBS and "Bear in the Big Blue House" on Playhouse Disney.
"Bear in the Big Blue House" is an enlightening show surrounding a cast of characters who live in the big blue house. The main character is Bear, a lovable and cuddly character with a soft voice and a big heart who interacts not only with the other characters, but with the audience as well. One of my child's most favorite parts of the show is when Bear "sniffs" the screen, trying to figure out what the child smells like. Even though I found it sort of odd the first time I saw this happen, my child became overjoyed and giggled in delight, pointing to the screen while Bear "sniffed" her. Whatever Bear smells typically initiates the topic of the day (i.e. frosting on a cake would initiate the topic of birthdays).
Other characters in the show include Tutter, a crazed mouse who typically is the comic relief; Ojo, a confident yet shy cub with an incredible imagination; Treelo, the youngest of the bunch; Pip and Pop, a lively duo of otters who are always getting into something. In every show, you will also find Shadow (a joyful character who always sings a song or story illustrated with the lost art of shadow puppetry) and Luna (the moon which Bear always ends his day with).
"Bear" is not like the Wiggles (which my child also enjoys) or Barney, over-saturated with songs and having little conversation. Instead, each episode of "Bear" is a story in itself with a beginning, middle, and end.

Two of the episodes feature the Bear Cha Cha, and of course the favorite -- Happy Happy Happy Birthday. This has been my son's favorite show from 9 months on, and has only recently been supplanted by Kipper, Bob the Builder, and Barney now that he is 2 years old. The mouse party is a shorter version of the stage show we watched last year when he was 14 months. We have several other Bear DVDs too, but this one is his favorite because of all the fun party songs to sing and dance along with. Rub-A-Dub-Dub everybody in the tub is also a great song. The DVD has sing alongs, and a nice menu from where you can choose to play any single episode of the three fabulous 1/2 hour episodes included. Bear is always gentle, considerate, and not frightening usually even to the youngest of viewers, though when Pip and Pop arrive on the scene it can get loud and noisy. I could let him watch this show alone, by himself if I wanted to -- couldn't say the same about Sesame Street or Thomas the Tank Engine etc which are much more scary.

We love Bear in our house! The songs are catchy and cute, and the lessons our toddler learns are invaluable. This particular DVD is one big party. Two of the episodes are about birthday parties - what little kid doesn't like a birthday party? The third episode is a dance-fest. Our toddler loves to dance and sing along, and could watch this episode over and over and over again!

My 17-month-old LOVES this DVD. It's packed with DVD extras like a great menu system, sing-a-longs, and more. He loves dancing to the great songs. The songs are not bee-boppee Barney-like, so my husband can actually be in the room and tolerate the songs and video.

My two year old absolutely loves this DVD. I have since bought another Bear in the big blue house dvd. Lots of music, dancing, and fun. This is a classic. I used to watch with my now 12 year old ten years ago.

Two of the three episodes are birthday themed. The first one, is the mouse Tutter's birthday. If you have Bear Live, this story line is a little bit of a repeat, but still cute and only 30mins or so, vs the hour of Bear Live. The second one is bears birthday. He just wants to relax on his birthday, but his friends have other ideas on how to celebrate his birthday. The third show is Tutter learning to dance. I love Bear in the Big Blue House. It is a great show for preschoolers and under. Not sure why it is no longer on TV, but Dora is? I got quite a few DVDs from my sister, which my son loved. I have bought the rest (except for the hard to get sports one) and we love them.

This DVD contains three episodes of "Bear in the Big Blue House." The first two have a birthday party theme. The final one doesn't really anything to do with a party, but it is still rocking.

The fun starts with "Mouse Party" when our friends in the Big Blue House put together a surprise party for Tutter the mouse. The viewer is asked to keep the secret as they prepare the party - putting together the decorations, making the cake and keeping Tutter in the dark. Tutter considers the fact that he's getting older and finally, viewers rock to "Happy, Happy Birthday" when the time comes for Tutter's big party.

Next comes "Bear's Birthday Bash." This is an episode that recalls "Mouse Party" in many ways, except this time it's Bear who's having the birthday. He'd like to have a nice, relaxing day, but the kids of the Big Blue House decide to throw him a surprise party.

Finally, "Dancin' the Day Away" finds everyone in the Big Blue House having some fun with dance. Tutter, however, doesn't think that he can dance, but Pip and Pop show him that he really can.

This is a fun show with awesome singing and adorable characters and stories. My favorites are Tutter and Ojo (and the big old Bear himself), but they're all wonderful. This DVD includes bonus sing-alongs of the various songs.
