"This Kipper video features 7 episodes and runs for 1 hour. For newcomers, this cartoon is simply and beautifully illustrated, moves at a leisurely pace, and teaches life lessons without being preachy.
The episodes included are as follows: The treasure hunt- Tiger brings over a metal detector but gets frustrated when he finds nothing but junk with it. Kipper helps out by burying his piggy bank for Tiger to find.
Looking after Arnold- Kipper babysits little Arnold one afternoon, and exhausts himself (I'm sure parents of toddlers can relate to that one).
Tiger's Joke Box- Tiger plays practical jokes on everyone, and ends up being the butt of a joke himself
Pig's Sweater- really funny, Pig insists on wearing his new sweater, even if it's sweltering outside.
Clay Time- the whole gang has fun with a potter's wheel.
The Magic Carpet- Kipper takes a trip to the moon and meets friendly aliens. (Your child may ask for a magic carpet after this one).
Kipper the Hero- Kipper helps rescue a kitten caught in a tree.
My almost 4 year old will watch nothing but Kipper. I actually find myself laughing along with the characters when I watch with him."
"Kipper is a mischievous puppy with a British accent who spends his time finding adventures with pals Arnold, Tiger, Pig, and Zebra. The series is based on the best selling books by Mike Inkpen. The stories are fun and easy to follow, foster ceative thinking, and reinforce messages such as cooperation, courtesy and kindness. And in regular language? Kipper is the perfect my-child-needs-to-unwind-and-it's-witching-hour-but-gotta-get-dinner-on-the-table video. It's completely non-grating, which may be important to those adults out there that are "Wiggled" or "Tuttered" out (for those familiar with the hyperactive puppet in "Bear In The Big Blue House"). Simply put, it's a good show and does not promote ADHD: more likely, it's even an antidote."
Charming and funny!

"My 2-1/2 year old daughter LOVES this video. The characters are sweet, funny and likable. The stories are simple but told in a charming way that isn't patronizing. The video does not have any violence or high action, and the humor is gentle and not demeaning, so it is more suited to younger children. Kindness and friendship among the characters is stressed. I've seen it multiple times with my child, and I enjoy its sweet humor, visual style and music (kind of jazzy). A word of caution: Multiple viewings may cause your child to pick up a British accent!"
Kipper is great

"Kipper is such an adventurous dog! He has cute adventures that my [...] son loves to do as well. The videos are good and interesting. My son started to talk like Kipper (with a British accent)...very cute! I recommend any of the videos as I have 4 of the Kipper videos! Enjoy!"
My 3-year-old loves it.

"My 3-year-old son loves it. I got him this since he enjoys another Kipper dvd, 'Kipper helps out'. He imitates gestures and activities he sees on dvd, and laughs at many scenes. All episodes are mild, playful, and contain no scary or violent images and sounds. I watched it together and found it more enjoyable than irritating like many other childrens' shows. I like the jazz music in the background, and I also like the voice acting which is very easy on the ears. I'd let my kid watch it over and over without any worries."
