Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood "Big Brother Daniel" DVD

Big thanks to PBS for the DVD to help with this review

DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD stars 4-year-old Daniel Tiger, son of the original program’s Daniel Striped Tiger, who invites young viewers into his world, giving them a kid’s-eye view of his life. As they closely follow and share Daniel’s everyday adventures, preschoolers ages 2-4 and their families learn the fun and practical strategies and skills necessary for growing and learning.

Our three year old daughter LOVES Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. I'd seen commercials surrounding Daniel having a sibling back in late Summer, and after it's premiere date in August 2014, its been on our DVR ever since. I was so excited when I got the chance to own the "Big Brother Daniel" DVD because it was another one to add to our collection, and it got the episodes off my DVR! She watched this DVD for the first five days straight of owning it.

The “BIG BROTHER DANIEL” DVD includes the following stories:
The Tiger Family Grows
The Tiger Family is growing and Daniel learns that he is going to be a big brother! At first, Daniel isn’t sure what to expect, but as his family prepares for the arrival of the new baby, Daniel learns what it means to be a big brother…and a big helper.
Daniel Learns About Being a Big Brother
The new baby is almost here and the Tiger Family is getting ready. Daniel is eager to help as Mom and Dad prepare the new baby’s room, but struggles with the idea of giving up old baby things for his new sibling. He soon realizes that being a big brother means letting go of things you no longer need, and that’s a big help for the whole family!
The Baby is Here (Special Double Story)
The baby is about to arrive and everyone is so excited! Mom and Dad head to the hospital to have the baby while Daniel and Grandpere spend time at home going through some of Daniel’s old things. Daniel discovers an old bedtime book that inspires some musical play in the park – as well as big musical numbers throughout the story, welcoming the new addition to the Tiger Family.
Time for Daniel
Daniel is playing adventure tiger at home with Dad, but things are not quite the same, now that Baby Margaret is around. Daniel is upset that Dad keeps interrupting their play to take care of Baby Margaret, but Daniel learns that there’s time for the baby and time for Daniel, too.
There’s Time for Daniel and Baby Too
Daniel is still getting used to having the new baby around. When Prince Wednesday comes over to play, Daniel is upset when Prince Wednesday wants to play with the baby instead of him, but he learns that there’s time for the baby and time for Daniel, and what’s even better is when they all play together!
Playtime is Different
Daniel is having fun playing restaurant with O and Katerina, but they keep getting interrupted by a very curious Baby Margaret who wants to be part of the action. She also can’t seem to keep her hands off of Daniel’s beloved Tige-y! Daniel eventually learns that although having a new baby sister around is very different…it can also be really fun. 
The Playground is Different with Baby
Daniel is playing “circus” at the playground with his friends, but Baby Margaret seems to be making things different. Mom and Dad encourage Daniel to find a way to include Baby Margaret in the play, which Daniel learns can actually be even more fun! Let the circus parade go on!
