I purchased this DVD primarily for my 18 month old son. I thought he would enjoy it as he grew older if it was too advanced for him now. Turns out that both he and my 5 year old son love the videos and ask for it daily!

The storyline is centered around the relationship between a large green bear who lives next door to 4 year old twin brother and sister and their mother and father. I appreciate the interaction between the parents, grandparents, and twins as well. Sadly, the family unit has been demeaned in mainstream children's shows. Either the parents are missing entirely (Barney, Out of the Box, etc.) or, for older kids' shows, the parents are depicted as stupid or detached (Jimmy Neutron, Fairly Odd Parents, etc.). This series does an excellent job of depicting balanced, loving, supportive parents who are also positive authority figures in the twins lives.

Boz is the bear's name. He is very upbeat, energetic, and positive. Some parents might find this annoyingly so, but, in my opinion, the video is designed for preschool aged children and it certainly seems to appeal to my children very much. My 5 year old watches the videos with a sweet smile (no kidding!) on his face as he experiences the show with them. By the way, my son has seen (and enjoyed) Sponge Bob and Jimmy Neutron, yet he asks for Boz more than anything else.

The value based educational stories are very sweet and well done. This is a Christian video, so there are references to God and faith. The references to God are loving and appropriately interspersed throughout the stories. The subtle references are nice. My son loved finding the cross in the twins' bedroom. The faith references are balanced and (in my opinion) realistic.

The former reviewer either doesn't understand the value of this new series, because she keeps referring to "pouring the Barney fun on," which is incorrect. The fact is, my twin girls love this and want to continue to watch it over and over again. It doesn't give me a headache, and I wonder if the reason some parents say "enough's enough" is because they have a short attention span and want something new all the time. I sometimes wonder who has the issue - the children or Parents!!

This is a wonderful series, and it incorporates a faith-based message, and I believe that children have become drawn to it because it is different, and you will not see it on Public Broadcasting anytime soon. This is NOT Barney. Let's get this straight. This is lovable and fun, and who ever said that living your faith is boring!!!

Highly recommended!!!

As a mom, my favorite part of this video is when Drew and Gracie pray over their meal and before bedtime. My then-two-year-old son had this prayer memorized after only the second or third time watching it. It goes like this:

Thank you God as this day ends

For my family and my friends

Taking time to sit and pray

Thank you God for this great day

I love helping Mommy and Daddy

And Boz

And the clothes and toys we're too big for

Will make other kids happy

Amen.

So now my son prays this exact prayer when he eats and goes to sleep. It is adorable.

Really, the whole video is fantastic. Think high-quality computer animation coupled with cute songs, adorable characters, and great values. Drew and Gracie are truly inspriational for any child and I believe they have actually inspired my son to be more helpful and considerate.

The other thing that stands out about, not only Friends and Helpers, but also the entire Boz series, is that it is set within the context of a loving, warm Christian family. If you think about all the great kids' shows, both Christian and non-Christian, none that I can recall are set within the context of a nuclear family. So that aspect of Boz adds an entirely new dimension for kids to relate to.

What can I say? We're smitten! Boz is sure to be around for a long time with many more DVDs and products to come. You can't lose with any Boz products! Truly inspirational for children, high quality, and fun.

My mother bought this DVD for our 23-month-old son. I thought it looked pretty cheesey so I wasn't very enthused about showing it to him. As we all have experienced, sometimes when a toy/movie/book is marketed as being a "Christian" alternative, the quality isn't as high as "mainstream" media.

However, my son has LOVED this DVD. We have only had it for about a month now, but have watched it countless times. It does have ELEVEN different songs on it, which my son really loves and tries to sing along with.

Last week we took the DVD to church with us and used it during children's church for kids aged 6 and under. Every child seemed to enjoy it, even though I was afraid that the 6 year olds would feel it was beneath them.

That being said, the characters do pray to God (who loves them) and try to be good neighbors, friends, children, etc, but that is about the extent of the theology in this DVD. I can't recall any mention of Jesus or any thing beyond the idea of "being good" or "doing good".

All in all, this is a good DVD, but the only thing that makes it "Christian" is a few sentances of prayers and songs about God loving us.
