|Summary of "Nick Jr. Holiday - Stocking Stuffer?":
This disc will not win any prizes for the video and audio quality, that's for sure. But kids aren't as picky as we adults are, are they? Definitely not. Although average-quality, these are four fun episodes that the children will enjoy. The parents and caregivers will appreciate the educational nature of these shows, and the projects involved may be perfect in a daycare setting.
My only misgivings is that so MUCH of the shows on this disc concentrates on the Christmas holiday, and were it not for Blue's Clues (and a malfunctioning giant neon dreidel in Rugrats), the other holidays of this season would get no recognition at all. I wish I could find a great kids' DVD that actually spent time with ALL of the winter holidays, with some depth. Rugrats provided a great opportunity to be more varied, as they could have put either the "A Rugrats Chanukah" or "Rugrats - Kwanzaa" episodes on here instead as the bonus. A missed opportunity?
But don't miss your opportunity to share these fun episodes with the little ones. Until full-fledged collections of each of these shows hit home (well, Rugrats should have "A Decade in Diapers" by the time you read this, but the other three are lacking), getting episodes in collections like this will just have to do!
