Available on DVD July 21, 2015
NEW YORK – May 29, 2015 – Nickelodeon’s newest DVD, Let’s Learn: Kindness sets out to teach some of life’s biggest lessons including good manners and forgiveness. This delightful DVD features six super-polite episodes of Nickelodeon’s popular franchises Wallykazam!, Bubble Guppies, Dora the Explorer, Team Umizoomi, Blue’s Clues and Ni Hao, Kai-lan as the characters learn the values of friendship, manners, teamwork and more! With over 140 minutes of social-skills fun plus a bonus educational worksheet for on-the-go learning, Let’s Learn: Kindness is a must-have for every growing and loving child. Created by Nickelodeon and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution, Let’s Learn: Kindness will be available on DVD on July 21, 2015 for the suggested retail price of $14.99.
Let’s Learn: Kindness includes the following episodes:
Wallykazam! – “Totally Swamped” – Wally’s grumpy neighbor, Stan of the Swamp, won’t give back his new glider unless Wally can make him laugh– a real challenge since Wally has never even seen Stan smile! Can Wally use his magic stick to make “M” words that’ll get a chuckle out of the swamp monster?
Bubble Guppies – “The Glitter Games!” – Molly helps Demanda, an aspiring princess, with her manners. Together they’ll become true princesses in the hallowed Glitter Games!
Dora the Explorer– “Por Favor!” – Dora and Boots read a fairytale about a young kinkajou, a cute and cuddly forest creature, who is destined to be king. The kinkajou loses his crown because he doesn't know the magic words "por favor." Dora and Boots set off to teach the kinkajou the magic words. Along the way, they encounter knights, dragons and talking drawbridges.
Team Umizoomi– “Stolen Lunches!” – The team is visiting their friend’s school when The TroubleMakers steal all the kids' lunches! Milli, Geo and Bot take off in hot pursuit to get the lunches back before The TroubleMakers reach their secret picnic spot.
Blue’s Clues– “Blue’s Sad Day” – Something is making Blue sad, so we play Blue’s Clues to figure out what it is. Along the way, we help our Felt Friends label their feelings and skidoo into Blue’s school to help her classmates figure out how to resolve difficult situations and emotions.
Ni Hao, Kai Lan– “Kai-Lan’s Carnival” – Kai-Lan and her friends wake up early today because there’s a carnival in the backyard with game booths, prizes and rides! Stompy the elephant is almost finished building a Rollercoaster Rocket Ride that everyone wants to ride. When Rintoo and Hoho throw some balls at another game booth, they accidentally break Stompy’s rocket. It’s up to Kai-Lan and the viewer to help Rintoo and Hoho realize that if they cause a problem for someone else, they need to say sorry and help to fix it.

We were excited to receive this home-run DVD from our friends at Nick Jr. The six episodes focus on kindness, which is something that we've been talking a lot about at home. B was able to sit down and watch one episode at a time, focusing on each situation, individually. He laughed and sang along with the characters. B really loved the WallyKazam episode, which focused on having the ability to make your friends smile. B loves to make others smile, and laugh, so this one hit the spot with him.
Blue's Sad Day was a great episode for us to sit down and watch together. When kids are at such a young age, and start experiencing new feelings and emotions, it's wonderful for them to be able to see that they're not alone, and that it's okay to talk about those feelings. B is pretty open with us, when it comes to him being able to tell us how he's feeling, and this episode just encouraged him to keep on coming to mommy and daddy, or a trusted adult when he's feeling blue.
These episodes were also a great reminder to me as a parent to model the behavior I expect to see from my child. They reminded me to practice patience, listen to my child, express my feelings through words instead of hasty actions, and to use resources and tools for teaching, such as this DVD. As a mom, I feel that this is a wonderful collection of episodes to watch and enjoy with your little ones, before they head to school this year.
