Gets my toddler involved!

"This DVD has 3 episodes. One long episode focusing on Polar Bears, one episode on Puffins (penguin-like birds), and one episode focusing on Okapi (odd deer/giraffe like creatures). The Puffin episode has especially catchy songs.
The Go Diego Go TV series is especially effective at eliciting responses from my toddler; and this DVD is his FAVORITE.
Diego is an animal rescuer who, along with his side-kick baby jaguar and his sister Alecia, sets out to help an animal in trouble, solving many problems along the way. Diego is Dora's ("Dora the Explorer" TV series) cousin; however, the Diego TV series seems to be aimed at slightly older kids than Dora--the songs, puzzles and responses requested are more sophisticated than in the Dora series.
Each episode in the series focus on one creature and teaches 4-8 facts about it. 3-5 of those facts are repeated and demonstrated multiple times during the episode with a clever quiz at the end. My 2 year old usually gets 50% or better the first time through, so I think their technique must work.
But beyond the educational value--the shows are just fun and engaging. My toddler loves the characters and gets wrapped up in the plots and will talk to the characters when they ask for responses/"help". Even Sesame Street, which he adores, couldn't do that! Plus, it's a show I don't mind watching with him--always a bonus!
