Families spent a lot of time indoors together this year thanks to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Between parents working from home and students forced to take classes online, parents and their children have seen a lot of each other this year; Probably a lot more than usual. That increased time together can often lead to tensions between families. Thankfully, plenty of new DVD and Blu-ray box sets were released this year to help relieve that tension and give families plenty to enjoy together. That has already been pointed out in part through Phil’s Picks 2020 Top 10 New DVDs & Blu-rays list. Single disc presentations are just a part of what families had to enjoy together this year. There was also plenty of content thrown in this year in the form of new DVD and Blu-ray box sets for families. Among some of the best of this year’s new family box sets are first time releases from the likes of Time Life, PBS, and Nickelodeon.
As with each list from Phil’s Picks, this list features the year’s Top 10 new titles and five additional honorable mention titles for a total of 15. Without any further ado, here for your consideration is Phil’s Picks 2020 Top 10 New Family DVD & Blu-ray Box Sets.

PBS, PBS Kids and Nickelodeon are some of the most important television networks for children today. In an age when it seems like families are becoming increasingly segregated within their own homes thanks to technology and general television programming that is anything but family friendly, these networks continued to provide so much content to bring families together in 2020. That content was presented not just on the small screen, but also on DVD and Blu-ray. To that extent, even new children’s DVDs and Blu-rays deserve their own year-end best of list. That list is what is presented here from Phil’s Picks. This year’s list of top new children’s DVDs and Blu-rays pulls mainly from the noted networks, and even from Warner Brothers. Topping the list this year is S.T.E.M. programming from Nickelodeon in the form of a new DVD from Blaze and the Monster Machines.
