(SOURCE: AC Nielsen, 1/1/10-12/31/10). Each DVD release is consistently ranked in the Top 10 new releases for Children’s Non-Theatrical (source Nielsen) and many have received significant awards and recognition from organizations such as Parents’ Choice and KIDS FIRST!

Our opinion:

Even though Devonny is a little girl, she has not yet developed the strong sense of disdain for "boyish" programs as Giana has. She thoroughly enjoys watching this DVD! She loves it when the show comes on sprout and she is so attentive to it for such a young child. I know people say babies shouldn't watch television,  but I think that's quite absurd. Giana watched it from a very young age, and she is a gifted child. No, really. So it seems like if there were damage to be done, it would have been on her, because she watched a lot of T.V. 
I can't ask Devonny for her opinion, but her attentiveness to it is proof enough. It's cute actually. Normally she only watched shows that have a lot of music. Thomas the Train programs do not. SO this is the first program I have seen her pay attention to that was not almost entirely musical. In fact- I was quite impressed with the DVD myself. The episodes were engaging and bright and colorful. The artwork and box of the DVD itself was very pretty and shiny. I am sure anyone's child would enjoy and love this DVD too!
