Tales From The Crib: Snow White - Once upon a time... (9/17/2005)
Video:   9/10
Audio:   8/10
Extras:   2/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of "Tales From The Crib: Snow White - Once upon a time...":
I'm never too sure about shows, or movies, that take characters and have them play someone else. They can be colossal wastes of time, or they can be entertaining. This was the latter; I quite enjoyed the story, and I think the babies playing other characters worked out well. The two bonus episodes which help bring the total content to around 2 hours, which isn't bad for one of these animated releases.

I keep holding out hope for season sets of the Rugrats, but I don't think it'll ever happen. (read entire review)

Nick Picks Vol 1 - I pick Nick (5/26/2005)
Video:   9/10
Audio:   8/10
Extras:   0/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of "Nick Picks Vol 1 - I pick Nick":
It seems as though Nickelodeon continues to release discs that collect a few episodes of their shows, but they're always renaming the released. This is "Nick Picks Vol 1," but will there be a "Vol 2"? If you've been collecting all the Nick releases then this one has 3 new episodes on it; "Information Stuporhighway," "Bitter Reunions" and "Hostile Makeover." This is a fun disc if you don't mind some possible duplication. (read entire review)

Rugrats Holiday Celebration - Happy Holidays (8/27/2004)

Extras:   1/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of "Rugrats Holiday Celebration - Happy Holidays":
Fans of the show will pick this set up, but they'll probably grumble that some of these episodes have been released before. I keep holding out hope that we'll see the show released in season sets, but this is probably unlikely. (read entire review)

NickToons: Christmas - It's Christmas! (11/16/2003)
Video:   9/10
Audio:   7/10
Extras:   1/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of "NickToons: Christmas - It's Christmas!":
These holiday-themed discs are nice for parents, but also for consumers not familiar with all the cartoons. While I've seen every SpongeBob disc that's been released, I've only caught a few episodes of The Fairly OddParents and I want more, more, more! Please Nick, release some The Fairly OddParents DVDs for me. Pretty please. (read entire review)

NickToons: Halloween - Spooky Stories (9/28/2003)
Video:   8/10
Audio:   7/10
Extras:   1/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of "NickToons: Halloween - Spooky Stories":
While not every episode is about Halloween, these 6 episodes are entertaining. I'm really interested in checking out some other episodes of The Fairly OddParents. If you're looking for a Halloween themed disc, or just want to check out a few different Nick shows, this is the perfect disc for you. (read entire review)

Vol 1: Growing Up Changes Everything - Babies, big! (8/25/2003)
Video:   10/10
Audio:   8/10
Extras:   1/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of "Vol 1: Growing Up Changes Everything - Babies, big!":
I really liked this show. As much as I like the babies, it's great to see the same characters 10 years older. They're the same, but they don't talk like...well...babies. Nick DVD has the right idea by releasing unseen episodes on DVD before they air.

Fans of Rugrats will want to check this disc out. (read entire review)

Vol 2: Mysteries - Play All!! (1/28/2003)
Video:   7/10
Audio:   8/10
Extras:   0/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of "Vol 2: Mysteries - Play All!!":
While I love the 'rats, I was expecting more from this release. I think the people at Nick DVD need to sit down and put a bit more thought into their releases. If I were confused for a minute or two while looking for the other episodes on the DVD, imagine how a 4 or 5 year old will react; "Play All" should do just that. The inclusion of an episode that hasn't aired will be a drawing factor for some, but I was looking for a bit more in this release. (read entire review)

Vol 1: A Decade In Diapers - I dunno doesn't look safe (10/03/2002)
Video:   6/10
Audio:   8/10
Extras:   4/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of "Vol 1: A Decade In Diapers - I dunno doesn't look safe":
If you're a fan of Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil and baby Dill, you'll want to pick this disc up. It's perfect to put in and plunk the kids in front of, or watch yourself. If you've never seen "Rugrats", this is also a good chance to be exposed to the characters. I had never seen an episode with Chucky's step-mom and step-sister (introduced in the second movie) but I like the characters from the few episodes they appeared in on this disc (the last two). Fans of the show should pick this one up, and those of you with youngsters who have never seen the show should rent it (you'll end up buying it later). (read entire review)

Nick Jr. Holiday - Stocking Stuffer? (9/25/2002)
Video:   7/10
Audio:   7/10
Extras:   1/10

Buy from (US)
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!
