In addition to featuring the following seven stories, the DVD includes special features – printable activities and coloring pages as well as bonus live-action music videos, which interweave scenes from the show with footage of the show’s musical composers singing “It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and “You Are Special.” You can purchase the DVD only as of October 14 with SRP of $12.99.

While I've chosen to set this back for our 2 1/2 yr old Macyn as a Stocking Stuffer, I know she will love this set. We have another Daniel Tiger DVD that has been on repeat in the playroom for several weeks with no end in site. She loves watching repeats of the show, especially the newer episodes featuring his baby sister. 

“Snowflake Day!” (Double Episode)

In this special half-hour holiday musical episode, Daniel prepares for his big role as the snowflake in the neighborhood’s Snowflake Day Show! All of the neighbors pitch in to make the celebration a true success!

 “Something Special for Dad”

When Dad receives a letter from Grandpere, Daniel sees how happy Dad is. Daniel really loves Dad, so he decides to send him a letter too. Then he goes to the Post Office with Mom, where he learns how letters are sorted and mailed. He even joins Mr. McFeely on his “speedy delivery” to give Dad his very special letter!

“I Love You, Mom”

Daniel wants to surprise Mom Tiger with her favorite banana bread because he knows how much she likes it – and “making something is one way to say I love you.” He and Dad go to Baker Aker’s Bakery, where they learn about the bread-making process. They return home to surprise Mom and she happily shares the banana bread gift with them too!

“Thank You, Grandpere Tiger!”

Grandpere Tiger comes to visit, but Daniel is sad that Grandpere can’t stay for the special “Thank You Day” celebration later that day. Daniel learns to be thankful for the time they DO have together, and is then surprised when Grandpere appears at the celebration after all!

“Neighborhood Thank You Day”

It’s Thank You Day in the Neighborhood – a special celebration when each of the neighbors puts a note in the “Thank You Tree” as a way to say thank you to one another. Daniel has trouble deciding who of his neighbors he wants to thank with his note. The episode ends with a Thank You Day feast with all the neighbors celebrating together.       

 “Katerina’s Costume”

Daniel and Katerina are at Miss Elaina’s Museum-Go-Round to make their costumes for Dress Up Day. While Daniel and Miss Elaina know exactly what they want to be, Katerina is having a harder time deciding on just the right costume. Eventually she comes up with a very clever idea!   

“Dress Up Day”

It’s Dress Up Day in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and it’s time for the annual main street parade! The children visit all the stores, showing off their fancy costumes and receiving different stickers from their neighbors.
