We've been watching this video on our instant stream via Netflix. My 3 and 4 year olds LOVE it, and we, the parents have enjoyed it, too. I loved these books as a child and although it took a little time to adjust to the 3-D version of Frances, which is rather slick, I got past it because the stories were so well done. They are true to the books, but in some ways better, because we get to hear the tunes that Frances sings her songs to. They teach great lessons, to the point that we have referred to them in our regular lives. Recently, an outing was canceled because one child was sick. Both kids were devastated. I reminded them that this was just what had happened in Frances, and both kids got it. Also, since watching these, my 4-yr old now says stuff like, "I need some alone time," and she also now makes up her own songs about the injustice of the world, just like Frances. I love these videos. I wish there were more. I would buy them in a heartbeat.

Frances books were some of my favorites as a young child. I am excited that my children can enjoy the books and this adorable DVD. Everyone in the family enjoys watching it. My sixteen-month-old daughter asks for it by saying, "Badger! Badger!" and pointing at the TV. Even my oldest child, who is nearly seven, finds the DVD fun and amusing. He actually laughs out loud at it. It's rare to find something so well enjoyed by a variety of ages, with no objectionable language for the youngest ones. I never imagined that it would be such a hit with my family!

My son and I have been awaiting this DVD release since we saw the previews on a Thomas DVD a couple of years ago. Everytime we watched the Thomas DVD (which is aLOT) he'd ask for it and I have been looking for it and finally it was released! He loves it and I think Frances is so cute, she is always getting herself into predicaments but learns a lesson in the end. Frances is very funny and mischievous and has quite the imagination. Oh and her little sister Gloria is adorable.

It's apparent that the writers of this show had kids. Frances has the wandering mind of the average imaginative child and it makes me giggle cause she is just like my daughter.

This product was great, and it really helped, because I couldn't find any Frances DVDs anywhere. My nephew can't go to sleep without it. Thank you.

Format: DVD
My daughter gets sucked into cartoons and watches them over and over, so it's hard to get her to try something new. But the moment we started Frances, I knew she'd found a new favorite. And I have too.

What sets Frances apart from the other shows is that this character is a perfect representation of a 3 year-old. She lives in the same little world as my daughter, and the same things are important to her. For example, when you first meet her, she shows you her nightlight and her boo boo. My daughter sees herself in Frances, and also sees how her antics affect the rest of the family. It's great entertainment, and a learning tool without any condescension.

I really wish there were more installments. The wiki says there was going to be a second DVD... where is it?

Format: DVD
Frances: Bedtime for Frances is a book and DVD combination that, for the first time ever, presents a computer animated version of the classic, award-winning children's storybook "Bedtime for Frances". Using the special, proprietary technology of the Henson Digital Puppetry Studio to enable puppeteering of digitally animated characters, Bedtime for Frances presents lovable badger characters in three simple adventures sure to delight preschoolers. Bonus features include an interactive read-along of "Bedtime for Frances", a Frances' Friends and Family character gallery, and a bonus episode "Fifi and the Flowertots - 'Hole Lot of Fun'". An excellent gift for parents and little ones to share.
