Nickelodeon Favorites: Puppy Palooza! includes the following episodes:
PAW Patrol: Pups Save A Super Pup/Pups Save Ryder's Robot - Rubble is pretending to be a super pup, but when he gets himself in trouble, it's up to Ryder and the PAW Patrol to save Rubble! / When Ryder's Robot Pup breaks and starts going wild around Adventure Bay, it takes the whole PAW Patrol to help Ryder find it.
Bubble Guppies: Bubble Puppy! - Sit! Stay! Fetch! Gil wants to adopt a puppy, but the Bubble Guppies have to learn how to take care of a pet before he can bring the little guy home.
Dora The Explorer: Puppies Galore - Dora, Boots, Benny and a stroller full of rambunctious puppies rush to save their puppy friend, Little Boots, before he wakes up a bear.
Team Umizoomi: Buster the Lost Dog - Milli, Geo and Bot are playing in the park with their friend Anna and her adorable dog Buster. When a game of fetch goes awry, Buster accidentally jumps into the back of a truck that carries him far, far away...to a construction site! To rescue Buster, the team must use their mighty-math skills to find Buster and reunite him with Anna.
Blue's Clues: Magenta Comes Over - Blue has a playdate with her best friend Magenta. We play Blue's Clues to determine what Blue wants to do when Magenta comes over. In addition to finding Blue's Clues, we identify and categorize footprints in the backyard with Shovel and Pail, explore the concept of opposites with Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper, and help the Felt Friends pick out costumes by making associations.
Mutt & Stuff - In this half-hour special, Calvin's dad (Cesar Millan, original star of The Dog Whisperer) hands him the keys to Mutt & Stuff and makes him in charge of the only school on the planet just for dogs! Calvin's job to make sure all the dogs get a bubble bath before the Dynamo Doggy Frisbee Festival. When lovable 6-foot-tall fuzzy dog Stuff gets too excited around the newest puppy, the little pup gets scared and won't get in the tub. Calvin helps Stuff learn a valuable lesson about acting calm around a puppy so it feels safe when it's trying something new. Get ready for mounds of messy bubbles, heartfelt moments, unbelievable Frisbee tricks, a dog-themed dance party, and lots of slapstick doggy silliness! It's all just a typical day at Mutt & Stuff!
We don't have a dog, due to allergies, and personal preference. B also has a slight fear of some dogs, so I was interested to see how he would react to this DVD. We're already big fans of Nick Jr. shows, like Paw Patrol and Umi Zoomi. When B opened up the package containing this fun DVD, B was pretty excited, and asked to pop it in right away, so we could check it out. We love the light-hearted nature of all of these Nick Jr. shows, and I love that they're so educational.
B loved going on a learning journey with Team Umizoomi. Team Umizoomi really helps children recognize numbers, and shapes- there's a math lesson in every story! B also loved the Bubble Guppies episode (we love the fun music in Bubble Guppies), and most of all, he loved Paw Patrol. Rubble just happens to be one of my favorite pups, and when he found himself in a spot of trouble, we couldn't wait to see Ryder and the pups work together to help him out!
All of the pups are so adorable! B loved watching his favorite pups, and getting to know some new ones, like Magenta! These episodes are wonderful teaching aids- I enjoy having a Nick Jr. collection on DVD at home, so we can incorporate some of the episodes into our daily learning activities at home in the afternoons. We can't wait to go on more adventures with these Pawesome pups!
