DVD Review & Giveaway: Barney




Released in January, the new Barney DVD Barney: One Upon A Dino Tale enters the enchanted world of fairy tales. Barney is a great story-teller and has a fantastic imagination. Some of Barney's friends come to play and they help him reenact some classic stories.


Some of the stories we see are The Fisherman and His Wife, Alice in Wonderland, The Lion and the Mouse. Baby Bop, BJ, and Riff get to act out Cinderella...this time with evil step-brothers. At the infamous ball, Barney comes along to teach them all the "Dino Dance".


They tell a story that we'd never heard before: The Emperor's Contest. I enjoyed hearing this Chinese fairy tale about finding the most honest person for the new Emperor.
And at the end they make up their own fairy tale. Baby Bop wants to be the princess. What little girl doesn't? So they tell a new story.


Zachariah loves Barney. And he really enjoys listening to tales. So this DVD was right up his alley.


*Buy It: You can get your own copy of Barney: Once Upon a Dino Tale in stores or online now. Amazon has it on sale right now for HALF-PRICE!


*Win it: I have 2 copies of Barney: Once Upon a Dino Tale to give away here. Who would like to win this for their kids?


To enter, tell me who in your house is/was a Barney fan. Zachariah is definitely our Barney fan. Matt & I neither one liked him. I know my sisters watched him for a while when they were young, but I was a little old for him by then.

My little brother liked Barney, but the rest of us were a little too old by the time he came around. Now my little Michael is the one thats into him.

At first I refused to let Katy watch him because he was so cheesy - but she caught a glimpse at her cousins' house and loves him now. I don't mind so much anymore either...
