HIT Entertainment is back at it with their latest DVD release, Playtime Pals. Playtime Pals is another in the line of compilations that provide children and their parents a number of different snippets of shows. This time, viewers can take on Bob the Builder, Kipper, Thomas & Friends, Barney, Fifi and the Flowertots and Fireman Sam in the course of an hour. Throw a bonus episode – Roary the Racing Car in Roary Cleans Up His Act and what results is something that will undoubtedly be in DVD players for months after the initial purchase.
I would love to see Lionsgate take this idea and run with it for more adult types of shows; make a â€œBest of the Ninetiesâ€ DVD with episodes of Hermanâ€™s Head, The Drew Carey Show, Wings, and market it at the same price point as â€œPlaytime Palsâ€; I just have a feeling that a number of individuals just get burned out on these DVD sets that only focus on one show. 0So, if you have a child or children aged around 0 to 8 years (younger or older limits dependent on what the child prefers), purchase â€œPlaytime Pallsâ€ and similar titles from HIT Favorites.
The audio and sound quality are just as sharp as each showâ€™s original release, while other features (such as the red color of the DVD case) ensures that children will be able to point out the DVD even if it is in a bookcase or entertainment stand. The DVDâ€™s $15 price point is competitive (if not better than) the price point for other childrensâ€™ toys and movies on the market, so in this down economy, â€œPlaytime Palsâ€ should be your next purchase.
