DVD Review & Giveaway: The Best of Barney

Barney, the big purple dinosaur with a bright green belly, is celebrating 20 years. Who else can put purple and green together and get away with it? Yeah, I'm not sure he can't either, but kids love him.

In honor of his 20 years a new DVD: The Best of Barney was released at the beginning of September. We've had a chance here at our house to watch this movie over and over...and over again already.

Barney started on PBS when I was pretty young. I never got into it too much, but I remember my sisters watching it when they were little. For some reason it started to annoy me pretty quickly. So when I was pregnant, I knew there was one character that I didn't want my child getting "into"....Barney. And here we are.

When I got this movie to review, I told Matt I wasn't going to let Zachariah watch it. I thought about viewing it myself then passing it along to someone else. But Zachariah has the world's most observant eyes, and he noticed this new DVD here. Of course he wanted to watch the big purple dinosaur.

I stuck the DVD in the player for Zachariah to watch with me. He fell in love with it right away. And you know what, to my amazement I didn't mind it too bad.

The Best of Barney is full of flash-back episodes from the beginning of Barney until now. They highlight some of the fun things that Barney's done over the years. It has many catchy songs and fun games and dances.

Zachariah has enjoyed dancing along with the video. And he found another new person he likes: Fifi. There are some bonus videos of Fifi the Flower, which are pretty cute too.

If I can come around and enjoy Barney, I think you will like it too. This will also make a great gift for any preschooler.

The Best of Barney is available on DVD now. You can find it online and in stores. Or you can stick around here, and I'll tell you how you can win your very own copy for free.

I have a brand new copy of The Best of Barney to give away to you one of my amazing readers. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below to be entered. If you'd like a second entry, you can link to this post on your blog. Then come back here and leave another comment with the link to your blog post.

I will be drawing a winner on Tuesday, September 30th at 12:00 noon EST and announcing the winner here. Best of luck, and stay tuned for more DVD reviews and giveaway.

Good luck with your competition!

I SWORE I wouldn't let Katy get interested in Barney. But we got a free double VHS tape and I let her watch it once and she was hooked. So I'm sure she'd love the "Best of"
