Littlest Pet Shop is one of the newer TV series based on the popular Hasbro toys, and this is the first DVD collection for it. It follows a young girl Blythe Baxter and her father, who move into a Big City apartment, right above the Littlest Pet Shop store, which also doubles as a day camp for pets. Blythe discovers that she has the ability to understand what the pets are saying, and they can understand her back! This is is beginning of fun adventures for the little girl and the animals. The series is definitely geared more towards girls than boys, and in the ages 3-8 age range.
This DVD features five episodes: "Blythe's Big Adventure Parts 1 & 2", "Bad Hair Day", "Gailbreak!", and "Penny For Your Laughs". It also contains several bonus features, including "A Look Behind The Pet Shop Doors", and printable coloring sheets for your kids to color. Speaking of coloring sheets, here is a link to download some:

My daughter just loved this DVD - I think like any little girl surrounded by pets she loves the idea of being able to have conversations with them. ;) The pets on the show aren't just cats and dogs - there's a wide assortment of critters and they all have distinct personalities, just like many animals in real life. I found myself wishing this show was around when I was her age! ;)
