Nick Jr. Characters Go Green!

Earth Day is fast approaching and though more and more adults and older children alike may already have plans for green acts and may finally be comprehending the significance of not only this day but the environmental impact of every day of the year, we need to also understand the importance of teaching youth children as early as possible the way to live a earth-friendly, green lifestyle.

Nickelodeon strives to help the parents of preschoolers with this momentous endeavour by bringing favourite Nick Jr. characters together in a green themed, Earth Day inspired DVD complete with eco-friendly packaging and over two hours of environment oriented episodes. Released March 30th Go Green! includes the ever environmentally vigilant Dora and her cousin Diego, the lovable Wonder Pets, as well as Yo Gabba Gabba, Blue's Clues abd Ni Hao, Kia-lan. Action packed and diverse the episodes on this DVD cover environmental topics from saving endangered animals to trees and learning how to care for plants and animals to recycling and reusing unwanted things.

Episodes You'll find on Go Green!:

Dora the Explorer Bugga Bugga~ Dora and Boots discover Mama Bugga Bugga struggling to bring home a giant cookie to her 10 bugga bugga babies. Can Mama Bugga Bugga make it home passed bug eating flowers and lurking spiders in a maze of spider webs, with the help of Dora and Boots?
Though this would not be my first choice of Dora episode for Go Green! it does explore difficult survival and the intricacies of ecosystems to some extent.

Go, Diego, Go! Manatee's Mermaid Rescue!~ A storybook adventure, this Diego episode finds Manatee and Diego delving into a fairy tale Mermaid city rescuing mermaids and the city itself. An allegory for the true reality of endangered manatees and the destruction of environment. The clever play on the manatees' similarity to the imaginary mermaid was a hit with my youngest!

The Wonder Pets! Save the Tree/Save the Elephant~ The Wonder Pets get a call to save a lonely tree alone in a city lot and an elephant in Kenya stuck in the mud.

Yo Gabba Gabba! Green~The Gabba Gang go green learning to care for the plants and animals and clean up the world around them. Lessons in recycling, picking up trash and refraining from littering are taught through featured songs.

Blue's Clues: What Does Blue Want to Make out of Recycled Things?~ Blue has a great idea when he and Steve are cleaning. Steve begins throwing things away but Blue knows the value of reusing old things and soon viewers are playing Blue's Clues as they sort recycling, choose projects to make and visit Recycle Town.

Ni Hao, Kai-lan~The Place Where We All Live~ Kai-lan and her friends learn the world is a place where we all must live together. After littering they discover their thoughtlessness has caused a big problem for others. The ants, worms, and snails building a fruit stand in ant city are hindered by trash. Who will clean it all up? Your kids can help Kai-lan and her friends!

It is important for children to Understand their part in creating a healthy environment and this DVD is a great start! In honour of Earth Day Northern Mama is giving away a copy of this Go Green DVD!
