Pick. Preschoolers learn about rhythm and dance in
this latest Blue's Clues video starring live-action host Joe and
the lovable animated dog Blue.
In the first episode of this
two-episode video, everyone's getting ready to play in Blue's Big
Band. Joe invites viewers to play a very special instrument along
with him--his hands! Blue's instrument is a mystery, and kids play
along with a game of Blue's Clues in order to figure out what Blue
is going to play in his band. Of course, playing Blue's Clues
involves finding clues marked by Blue's big blue pawprint.
Even Side Table Drawer is
musically-inclined in the episode -- she sings a hip-hop number
before offering Joe the handy dandy notebook. Mr. Salt, Mrs.
Pepper, and baby Paprika are playing some music on a washboard.
One of the best things about
Blue's Clues is the encouragement children receive to become
actively involved with the show. In this feature episode,
kids become "members" of the band by repeating rhythms
with their hands.
In the second episode, children
meet Joe and Blue as they are preparing for bedtime. Viewers join
Joe in a game of Blue's Clues to find out Blue's favorite part of
the bedtime ritual. The Handy Dandy notebook is shaped like a
pillow in this cute nocturnal episode. Unscrambling mixed-up
clothes is just one of the fun activities in this especially
The DVD edition has some exciting
extras for families who don't already own Rhythm & Blue. Two
bonus episodes from this older video are included.
