I bought this video for my 18-month old on a whim and it has turned out to be his favorite and mine too. It teaches music, colors, shapes, manners and more. It is interesting enough for toddlers and clever enough for adults. For those of us who are tired of purple dinosaurs, this is a wonderful "first-ternative".

I have to say as a mother of an 18 month old daughter, I am VERY VERY pleased with Bear In The Big Blue House. This is has everything you would want out of a children's show and more. This is NOT a show that you just put your child in front of to get them out of your hair. Children REALLY learn things, and watch out YOU may become addicted to them too. I believe that the success if this show is due to 1) It's a Jim Henson production. I grew up with Fraggle Rock that was also done by Henson, so I know how successful and talented he was, and his production company is doing an excellent job in carrying on his legacy. 2) The array of characters, and their names. There's Treelo, Ojo, Pip, Pop, Tutter, and of course Bear among others that show up now and then. 3) Their story lineup. Every show consists of the opening song, and a sniff or two by Bear (which your child will soon pick up like mine did. When she sniffs I know it's time to watch Bear!), then a main idea that usually includes all of the characters. Then he will search for Shadow by singing a song, and then she will magically appear on the wall, who then usually tells a story, sings a song or both. At the end, he goes and tells Luna the moon about his day and everything that they learned. Then they sing a closing song that is very catchy. That brings me to the 4th reason,
the music. The music is the most catching, and pretty music I have heard (Listen to the Shadow song that Shadow sings in the Episode "Early To Bed, Early To Rise" and you'll know what I mean). My daughter always dances to the great songs. I'm telling you as a parent, PLEASE give Bear In The Big Blue House a try. You and your child will REALLY enjoy it!

Bear in the Big Blue House is by far the most well-rounded, entertaining show for toddlers - and their grown-ups - I have ever seen. We grew up watching Sesame Street and the Muppet Show, and this extension of the Henson family creativity is fabulous! Parents will enjoy Bear's intelligence, patience and sense of humor, while their little ones will be spellbound as they learn important lessons. Round up the kids (young and old) press the play button, and prepare for a whole new experience in children's programming!

I am so happy that we have Bear to turn to instead of Teletubbies or Barney. Bear and his friends are normal and fun. The videos are great, the song cassette is marvelous and we LOVE the books. The only character we don't like is Shadow, her little skits are stupid. But everyone else is totally cool. The 2 yr old laughs and the two 35 year olds laugh too!

I think "Bear in the big blue house" is by far the BEST PROGRAM FOR TODDLERS. My 15 Month Old Nephfew Loves everything about it.From the time time it pops in the VCR to the time it stops he sit`s in awe spellbound.Not only is it good and wolesome but grown-ups can stand it. ANYONE WHO HAS OR KNOWS A SMALL CHILD HAS TO GET IT.

My 11-month old loves Bear and his friends. The songs are catchy and fun. Her daddy often finds himself singing the songs around the house. The episodes are interesting and relate to events familiar with the pre-school set. We love these videos, and intend to provide the entire series for our daughter. Definitely recommend these to all with little ones.

My 2-1/2 year old son loves bear! He sings the songs, does the dances, and enjoys looking for Luna every night now! I can tell he listens, and we discuss the shows, too. He doesn't "zone out" when watching these shows. He loves to join in with them. AND... It's not so bad to watch as an adult - it's definitely a 200% improvement over watching Teletubbies! Bear teaches great morals and behaviors, such as cleaning up, taking a bath, enjoying outside, sharing, friendships, and love. NO VIOLENCE, No Bad Behavior (no throwing toys, etc...) Just a great Positive message!

Bear in the Big Blue house is a wonderful educational video that talks to childern and not down to them. The music is upbeat and goes with the storylines. Each video contains two episodes and lasts for over 50 minutes. I really enjoy the video. It will last longer on my shelf than other childern's series that I find too repeatative. I really strongly recommend this video to anyone with childern.

From the moment 7ft. tall 'Bear' invites viewers over the threshold into the 'Big Blue House', you're swept up into this fun-filled children's series from Jim Henson Productions. Bear and his friends Ojo, Treelo, Pip & Pop, Luna (the moon), and Tutter the mouse (voiced by Kevin Clash) sing songs, and introduce young viewers to their favorite rooms in the house.
Bear speaks directly to (not down to) the audience, and involves you DIRECTLY in the goings and comings at the Big Blue House from the moment you get 'sniffed' at the front door.
Songs like "What's in the Mail Today?" and Bear's duet with Luna on "The GoodBye Song" will have you humming for hours! Adults will enjoy this as much as the little ones - or maybe more!

My nephew is 15 months old and he is truly in love with this video. He will not take his eyes off the television once while it is on. He loves to dance to the music while he is sitting in his highchair. And when he is a bit cranky all his mom has to do is say "Bear" and he knows what is going to happen next.
