We love Franklin. These programs are high-quality and best suited for ages 4-8 (in my opinion). Our children are 5 & 6 years old, and these are just perfect for them. Franklin learns many things in these shows and there is no worry about the content that my children are viewing. Age-appropriate. Sweet. Helps children learn about all types of life problems and how to deal with normal growing-up situations in an appropriate way. Highly recommend!

Nice Story Selection, But "Special Features" Are a Gyp
George Buttner | Dayton, Ohio United States | 06/01/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This first-ever DVD release of "Franklin" television stories includes a nice range of stories from the first through third seasons of the show. Included is the very first story, "Franklin Plays the Game," as well as other great stories like "Franklin's Camp Out" (in which Franklin learns about doing things for himself) and "Franklin's Birthday Party" (in which he and his Dad come up with a creative solution to entertain his extravagant birthday plans.)There's nothing to complain about as far as the story selection goes, but the DVD also promises exciting special features. However, when I went to take a look at them, it turns out that these so-called special features are actually an exact duplicate of what was included on the "Back to School With Franklin" DVD, right down to the song from it. They're nice and all, but I've seen them before.Also, each time you pop the DVD in, a promo track for other DVDs and such starts up. It does let you fast-forward it, but it won't let you skip it, which tends to grate a bit. On the positive side, the problem with the captions that existed on the "Back to School With Franklin" DVD has been fixed. On that DVD, the captions had a problem in which they tended to extend off the edge of the screen, and they were also riddled with punctuation errors. On this DVD, captions for longer lines are split into two rows, so that they don't extend off the screen. (Note that rather than the traditional caption format, these captions look more like subtitles, with larger text and no black background.)"
My 3 year old loves this

"My 3 year old loves this video. It is eight episodes on one DVD - great!!! It is annoying how they won't let you skip through the previews and I have to get out the remote to fast forward through them. Other than that, I would highly recommend this video."
Great Stories

"The Franklin stories are wonderful for 3-6-year-olds. I live in Switzerland, where we don't get shows like this very often, and I find the lessons heartwarming and valuable. Franklin's perspective is always realistic for a child, and more importantly, easy for kids to identify with. The Blanket episode perfectly fits my 3-year-old, and the story about learning to ride a bike actually inspired my cautious 5-year-old to go back out on his own bike and try again. I'm disappointed to see the low ratings based on such things as a possible defect in a particular DVD, rather than the content of the shows themselves. I highly recommend this DVD."
