Best of the Spot videos

"This is our son's favorite video. He's 2 and a half and has been enjoying it for about a year now and never tires of it. I bought a couple of other Spot videos (not to mention other sesame street, barney, thomas the train, bear in blue house etc.) but this remains his favorite. After watching some of the others, it is my favorite too - it is sweet without being nauseating (like Barney) and it is quiet and calm and teaches nice simple values. Spot's parents and grandparents are great role models - patient, loving, and empowering, and we could all learn a lesson from them. In one episode Spot makes his own breakfast (to let his parents sleep in) and spills an egg, a loaf of bread and cereal and milk on the floor. When his mother comes in, he says, "Look mom, I made my own breakfast!" and she, unfazed by the mess, says something like "Yes, Spot, I can see that, can you help clean up too?" in a pleasant tone of voice. I'd like to be a parent like that.After watching this video repeatedly, we bought a couple of the Spot books and were disappointed. The books are almost completely devoid of content. The warmth and interpersonal relationships are missing in comparison to the videos. My son likes them anyway, but only because he is already fond of the characters from the videos.This tape has 10 short episodes on it, interspersed by real kids doing various tasks. I've seen other reviewers complain of these diversions, but my son likes them and never wants me to turn off the video until the "kids" are done.Spot on the Farm is nice too. Sweet Dreams, Spot, is not as good, in my opinion."
Perfect Movie for Young Toddlers!

"Every child seems to love Spot! This video is exceptional because it is a full length film. My two year old daughter loves Spot. Every day I end up rewinding her Spot videos over and over! With this new addition to the Spot video collection, she can curl up in her bed to watch Spot, and I won't have to get up and constantly rewind the tape for another viewing of the beloved yellow dog! Spot teaches children about simple things in life such as going to the park, and taking turns on the swing and slide. It is absolutely perfect for the young toddler. I even get tickled watching Spot, and I am 39 years old! Spot can do some pretty amazing things. He can even bake a cake! This is one video that every parent of a toddler needs to have in his or her video collection! When I discovered this full length video was being released, I ordered it right away. I could not wait to hear the happy squeal of my daughter when I popped in a new Spot video! Every young toddler needs to be introduced to Spot, and I can't think of a better introduction than "Discover Spot!""
My Child's Favorite Video

"This is my 2 year old's favorite video by far. To all the people who gave this video a bad review and said they found it annoying - my first thought is who cares if YOU don't like it - what matters is if your child likes it or not. The songs and lyrics probably aren't annoying to your child. For the last year it has been my daughter's favorite and she will sit quietly and watch the entire video without getting up. It is a great video to put in when you need to get things done around the house. This video gets 5 stars from us."

"I bought the new Spot video fully expecting to see the same cartoon style as on the Disney Channel shorts. Lo and behold they (Who, I wonder?) changed the entire thing except the animation style. Gone is Spots' voice, laugh, and English accent. The narrator is also changed and sounds suspiciously like the voice in "Maisy". My 3 year old loves it but I am not happy about the changes and wonder how Eric Hill let this happen. Must everything be "Amercanized"?"
