Lalaloopsy: Friends Are Sew Special (Nickelodeon DVD)/Sesame Street: Be A Good Sport (Warner DVD/both 2013)

Picture: C+ Sound: C+ Extras: C Main Programs: B-

The latest pair of children's DVD releases are both solid and encourage young viewers to get involved in more than just watching TV.

Lalaloopsy: Friends Are Sew Special from Nickelodeon DVD continues the world of characters in and connected to art and crafts, particularly cloth items. My first impression of the franchise comes from a review a while ago from a different series in the growing franchise reviewed at this link:


The new release run 88 minutes and not only offers a little more programming as the best friend rag dolls come back to life again and embark on their latest adventures. The only extra is a compact sewing kit with cardboard and lace in the DVD case.

Sesame Street: Be A Good Sport runs even longer at 124 minutes and complies skits and programs that mostly relate to various sports. Some of these are very funny, others just plain smart. However, some skits do not have anything to do with sports (but Super Grover is wilder than ever) and this child-friendly DVD is also worth your time.

Extras include printable DVD-ROM PDF Activity Pages, Parent Tips and bonus Worm Games clip.

Both discs offer anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and the lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo that look and sound good, fine and are consistent as new TV productions should be. Professional edited and rendered, Lalaloopsy is in CGI and Sesame now in HD.
