WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Welcome to the Neighborhood” has been repackaged with a puzzle cover. The compilation is the basic introduction to the Daniel Tiger universe. Basically, you know the kid by now if you’ve checked out the show or other releases. Hell, we’ve covered quite a few at the site. This set is nice because it pushes being nice to others.
The Daniel Tiger series has been treading into Caillou territory. If you don’t know what that means, then you’re not a parent and you haven’t been ruined by specific media creations for this new age. I get that having a whiny kid character needing everything from everyone isn’t a novel concept. However, it gets grating on parents that have it on in the background to entertain the progeny while they try to have a functional adult life. I will say that the voice does capture their attention. Honestly, it wakes up the dog because when Daniel gets into a panic, you can hear that voice in your eyes. Take that for what you will.
The DVD comes with printable activites and coloring pages as the special features. Plus, you get that Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood nostalgia. It’s fun and the show looks good. The same can be said for the Dolby track. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to parents.
