Stories, Segmentation, Songs Make New ‘Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood’ DVD A Success

Courtesy: PBS/PBS Kids/Public Media Distribution

Summer is right around the corner and so is summer break.  That means families across the country will soon be looking for ways to keep their children entertained if they haven’t already done so.  Luckily, PBS Kids and Public Media Distribution have just the answer – a brand new DVD that takes Daniel Tiger and his parents on a family trip.  Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Tiger Family Trip will be released May 16 in stores and online, and there is plenty for the whole family to appreciate about this new release whether going on their own family trips this summer or not beginning with the DVD’s main story and its segmentation.  The lessons tied into the main story (and its companion episodes) are important to note too in examining the DVD’s overall presentation.  The songs, while they may not seem overly important, are in fact important in their own right to the DVD’s presentation, too.  Each element is important in its own right.  Altogether, they make Tiger Family Trip a visual trip that audiences of all ages will enjoy.

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Tiger Family Trip is a visual trip that audiences of all ages will enjoy.  This applies whether families are going on their own family trips this summer or not.  This is proven first and foremost through the DVD’s main story and its related segmentation.  The story follows Daniel and his family as they take a trip on Trolley to see Granpere, Daniel’s grandfather.  This is the kind of trip that is common during summer vacations, so it is fitting that it is being presented to home audiences in that exact time of year.  On a related note, the story’s companion episodes, which see Daniel and company visit a carnival, a butterfly garden and setting up a lemonade stand, are also very summer-themed stories.  They will just as certainly entertain families this summer.  They could even inspire families to take their own summer adventures to do the same kind of things.  Considering this, the DVD’s main story and its companion stories prove to be key pieces of the DVD’s presentation.

The story at the center of Tiger Family Trip is just one part of what makes that main feature so enjoyable.  It is just one part of what makes the DVD’s presentation a success.  The story’s segmentation adds even more depth to that presentation.  Audiences will note that the main story is broken up into four distinct segments, each of which clocks in at roughly 10 to 11 minutes long.  This might not seem like much on the surface, but in reality it is highly important.  That is because those short run-time ensure even more young viewers’ engagement.  If those behind the program had presented this story in one full presentation, odds are it might not have kept those same audiences engaged.  To that end, the main story’s segmentation proves to be just as pivotal to the DVD’s presentation as the story itself.

The story at the center of Tiger Family Trip’s main feature and its segmentation are both key features to said story.  The story is a work that is relevant to families of all types.  Its segmentation ensures young audiences’ engagement from beginning to end.  The lessons that are tied into the story are just as important to note in examining this DVD’s presentation as the story and its segmentation. Audiences will note that the show’s writers incorporated some familiar lessons into this original story.  Those familiar lessons include one about not waiting to use the bathroom, properly expressing one’s feelings and talking about them and other items.  The companion episodes present their own familiar lessons about trying things that are hard or maybe scary to a certain point.  As with the story’s segmentation, this might not seem overly important, but the opposite is the reality.  The fact that the writers could so effectively incorporate such familiar lessons into new scenarios yet again shows a lot of time and thought was put into their use.  The writers are to be commended for taking such time to consider this in creating the DVD’s main story.  That is not all for which they are to be commended.  The story’s musical numbers are important in their own right, too to the DVD’s presentation.

The story at the center of Tiger Family Trip, its segmentation and lessons are all key elements to discuss in examining this new DTN DVD. As has been noted, each element plays its own pivotal part in the DVD’s presentation.  They are only some of its key elements, too.  The songs that are incorporated into the story are just as important to discuss as the previously noted elements, believe it or not.  From rockabilly to light pop and in-between, the writers crafted a variety of songs that will entertain audiences of all tastes regardless of age.  This, like the story’s segmentation and lessons shows its own share of thought, too.  It shows a clear attempt by the show’s writers and creative forces to reach as many audiences as possible even through an element as minute as music.  Such consideration is just as worthy of applause as that used in developing the story, its segmentation and lessons.  When all three of these elements are joined, they make Tiger Family Trip a presentation that will entertain any family regardless of whether or not families are going on their own vacations.

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Tiger Family Trip is an enjoyable new offering of episodes from PBS Kids’ hit animated series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.  It is a collection of episodes that families will enjoy regardless of whether or not they are going on their own vacations.  That is due in part to the fact that it boasts yet another set of new stories that are expertly segmented and that feature some familiar lessons that are expertly placed in each story.  The songs that are incorporated into each story will reach audiences of all ages and tastes, too.  Each element is important in its own right to the DVD’s overall presentation.  All things considered, they make this DVD a visual trip that every family will enjoy regardless of whether or not families are going on their own vacations this summer.  It could even motivate families to go on some new family outings be it a road trip or something closer to home.  It will be available in stores and online May 16 and can be ordered online direct via PBS’ online store.  More information on this DVD is available online now along with lots of activities, games  and more at:
