Personal Experience: I received a complimentary copy of Imagine With Barney from Lionsgate and HiT Entertainment for the purpose of this review.

Prior to this, Xander had never watched Barney, but after watching this I think he’s going to want more! Xander is a very musical child, so the combination of singing and dancing really caught his attention. Seeing other kids perform dance moves and gestures drew him in and encouraged him to play along. He seemed to most enjoy the first episode… what boy can resist a pirate theme?

As a parent, I love the message of exploring the imagination. Imagination is an essential skill for success even as an adult. I also like that the disc has 4 episodes and bonus activity. It allows me to customize his viewing time… keeping him entertained from just minutes to over an hour.

Pros: Catchy songs with interactive gestures keep kids engaged. Encourages creativity and imagination. Multiple episodes on one disc keep the fun coming.

Cons: Parents have rather mixed feelings about the purple dinosaur, but it’s hard to deny the appeal to kids!

Imagine With Baney will be part of my Kids R Kool giveaway event coming on July 15th!
