Nickelodeon DVD Box Sets: Big Box Of Playdates 2/Dora’s Big Party Pack/i<3 iCarly Collection/Yo Gabba Gabba – Party In A Box


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C- (Carly: D)     Episodes: C+ (Carly: D)



For Summer 2011, Nickelodeon has finally issued some DVD sets instead of their usual DVD singles, though the following are just collections of three previously released singles each…



Big Box Of Playdates 2 is a compilation of titles that are… compilations!  This includes Sisters & Brothers which we already covered at this link:





Summer Vacation and We Love Our Friends are the other compilation singles and the set is fine if you child likes every single series featured.  Otherwise, I would skip this one.  Team Umizoomi Music Videos show up on Summer and Friends.



Dora’s Big Party Pack includes Dora’s Big Birthday Party as reviewed here:




It’s A Party and Super Silly Fiesta (with its hilarious cover) offer four more episodes each and this makes for a good box for fans of the show.  Both also have games, Party adds Baby Nick Jr. Music Video and Nicktrition Tips For Parents, while Fiesta has Nick Jr. Baby Video Sneak Peak.



i <3 iCarly Collection we have covered too often including here:




The less said the better and all but iSpace Out (reviewed at the link) have Behind The Scenes extras and iFight Shelby Marx adds the pilot for the awful Big Time Rush.  iSaved Your Life is the third single.



Finally we have Yo Gabba Gabba – Party In A Box, including The Dancey Dance Bunch we covered at this link:





Birthday Boogie! and Clubhouse are the other singles with four episodes each and no extras.  This is the best set here, only matched by Dora (the compilations are almost as good) and the 1.33 X 1 picture and Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo on all four box sets are consistent with the singles we previously reviewed.  Now you can choose which set(s) are best for you.
