The Backyardigans: We Arrrr Pirates DVD Review and Giveaway

The Backyardigans are setting sail with four exciting pirate adventures on this brand new DVD, The Backyardigans: We Arrrr Pirates [Amazon].  Preschoolers will learn to mambo with Sinbad and become heroes when they rescue King Pablo and his knights from the No-So-Nice Dragon.  Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment, The Backyardigans: We Arrrr Pirates DVD hits shelves March 8, 2011, for the suggested retail price of $16.99.

We’ve been playing this for the last week and the kiddo loves the episodes and really whats not to love about these stories which feature Pirates and Knights. Its truly a DVD thats a little bit more designed for boys then girls.  The stories will be a big hit with all kids no matter if their boys or girls but I’m betting the boys like just a wee bit more.
