The DVDs included in this three pack are “Life’s Little Lessons,” “Daniel’s Big Feelings,” and “Daniel Tries Something New.” The “TIGER-TASTIC 3 PACK” features stories that will help kids as they’re faced with challenges and experience new emotions, such as jealousy and frustration.
“Life’s Little Lessons” – Kids will learn about going to the potty with Daniel in two stories. A fun little song will help young children. “When you have to go potty, stop and go right away. Flush and wash and be on your way.” Other stories featured on this DVD are “Daniel Visits School,” “Daniel Visits the Doctor,” “Daniel Shares his Tigertastic Car,” “Katerina Shares her Tutu,” “Good Morning Daniel,” and “Goodnight Daniel.”
“Daniel’s Big Feelings” – Daniel helps teach kids about a wide range of emotions in this DVD such as frustration, jealousy, and empathy. In the story “Someone Else’s Feelings,” Daniel is using a hammer as he pretends to fix Trolley, but Daniel’s hammering is too loud for O the Owl and hurts his ears. Mom Tiger sees that O the Owl is uncomfortable and talks to Daniel about thinking about O the Owl’s feelings. Other stories featured on this DVD are “Empathy at School,” “Duckling Goes Home,” Daniel Feels Left Out,” “Daniel Gets Frustrated,” “Frustration at School,” “Daniel is Jealous,” and “Jealousy at the Treehouse.” Two bonus stories are also on this DVD – “Daniel Gets Mad” and “Katerina Gets Mad.”
“Daniel Tries Something New” – This grr-ific DVD includes important lessons about waiting, playing together, the fact that grownups come back, and working together. In the tale “Teacher Harriet’s Birthday,” Daniel, his classmates, and Mom Tiger decorate the classroom for Teacher Harriet’s birthday. As Daniel and friends work to create a rainbow from streamers, they uncover that, “if you can’t do it alone work together!” Other stories featured on this DVD are “Daniel’s Babysitter,” “Daniel Goes to School,” “Prince Wednesday Finds a Way to Play,” “Finding a Way to Play on Backwards Day,” “Daniel Waits for Show and Tell,” “A Night Out at the Restaurant,” and “The Dragon Dance.”
I really love this DVD because it has several episodes, and some of our daughter's favorites that would otherwise sit on our DVR. The stories aren't incredibly long so you can start and stop if you limit your child's television time, and if you have a long trip ahead of you in the car, this would be a great idea for the kiddo that loves Daniel like our kids do.
The “TIGER-TASTIC 3 PACK” has a run time of approximately 300 minutes, and its SRP is $19.99. You find can find this set on the PBS website, Best Buy, Barns & Nobles, and more.
