    Editorial Review

    There are two types of Schoolhouse Rock fans. Type A: those who--inspired in the '70s and '80s by "Conjunction Junction" and "Interjections!"--went on to become grammar gurus, copyeditors, and computational linguists. And type B: those who--less inspired by grammar than by catchy refrains--can still sing lines that today sound less than P.C.: Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars School House Rocks!
    At my school we perform plays and School House Rock was one of them. This year was the year we performed it and it was a success. The play even helped me. Cause some of the things they said i didnt know. This Review will help you with choosing the best school related movie to help your child with school.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Now all I need is a video of "Time for Timer!"
    When my son was born, and only my singing seemed to comfort him, (my singing had never comforted anyone before...) I found myself singing "The Preamble" and "Conjunction Junction." I bought all four Schoolhouse Rock videos shortly afterwards.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for ALL AGES!
    As a kid, I loved the Schoolhouse Rock series and still remember the Grammar Rock songs.As a mom, I came across Schoolhouse Rock again by chance and thought I'd get the tapes for my kids who are now 2 and (nearly) 5 to enjoy when they're older.Amazingly, not only my Kindergartener but also my 2 year old prefer this tape to just about anything else right now - including the Wiggles and Blues Clues!I thought I'd bought these for the future, but they absolutely love the music and the animation and my 2-year old goes around singing snatches of "Interjections" and "Lolly Lolly Lolly get your Adverbs Here".As for my Kindergarten-age son, he has grown to enjoy it on a whole new level now that he is reading and beginning to learn grammar and punctuation concepts.Parents, it's never too soon to invest in this gem!I'd much rather have them watching this than the Rugrats or something... ...

    From 1973 to 1985, a generation of kids watching Saturday morning television learned the function of conjunctions and the preamble to the U.S. Constitution with the help of an animated series called Schoolhouse Rock!The brainchild of executives at McCaffrey and McCall Advertising, the three-minute segments combined whimsical cartoons with catchy music (rock was only one of the styles) to help kids learn seemingly dry topics as easily as they could learn popular songs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a good movie to learn about math skills
    I enjoyed this movie so much 'cuz it help me thru my math skills and how I can use them to study and learn. This is the best school movie I ever enjoyed incl. the soundtrack. I was 5 or 6 when I grew up w/ this and I liked it a lot. I mean a WHOLE lot.
    5-0 out of 5 stars This has 2 much excitement
    you tired of learning multipliplacation by talking and no videos?Well,those days are over because of Schoolhouse Rock!-Multiplication Rock (1973).This is more fun then just having to talk about multiplication and not understanding it.It has songs,too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Schoolhouse Rock Testimonial
    When I was in third grade I never could get my times tables down pat- the sevens and twelves proved especially tricky. So my mom checked out this video from the library, and that changed immediately. I could rattle off my multiplication tables as fast as everybody else after watching this only a few times. Amazing! That same year I got put in advanced math. Coincidence? I think not! All the songs were just so catchy. I loved it when I saw the NIKE commercial playing "Three is the Magic Number", that's one of my favorites. Anyways, parents, this is a great buy for your kids and I doubt that you'll get tired of the tunes. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Once upon a time kids learned many of their school lessons in the three-minute episodes of Schoolhouse Rock. These educational cartoons came on during the commercial breaks of the less-than-edifying Saturday morning fare in the 1970s, and despite their healthy content, kids stayed glued to the screen to sing along to the somewhat psychedelic cartoons. Countless children hummed their way through social studies. The Preamble to the Constitution is much easier to remember when it's set to music. And everyone who saw the cartoon remembers how a bill becomes a law ("Oh, I'm just a bill, a lonely old bill, sitting here on Capitol Hill").These and eight other shorts make up Read more

    This was a great show.I can't say anything better than the other reviewers, so I'll just say that this tape is a low-cost alternative to the DVDs that were released if you just want a little of the show for nostalgic purposes.

    Well, i am here to say this is a fabulous tool! I watched all of these as a child and have shared them with my children.For those of you with the less than 5 star reviews let me say...This is not meant to be an exhaustive history lesson!It is a great way to introduce children to the history of our country. Something that, in my experience, schools made very boring.My children love history.If you find it not as accurate then be the one to take the next step and research it with your kids.I would agree it is geared toward younger kids but not that older kids would find it "stupid" at all! These reviews were pretty harsh. Also, the pilgrims DID plant food.Yes, the indians taught them everything and saved them but i wouldn't call that an inaccuracy. The movie just didn't get that deep into it.Come on now it is only a half hour! I highly recommend this to children of all ages.It opens the door to questions and conversations about our country that may not be raised otherwise. The music is very catchy and stays with you.It is plain and simple fun while being educational at the same time. Don't let the negative reviews sway you.This is a great video series and I highly recommend it!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great intro for children to music appreciation!
    My 5 yo loves classical music, and I found these videos at my library.He loves them! I appreciate how Marsalis uses classical music to help us understand jazz, which I like but never really "appreciated." I'm sure we'll borrow them more as he ages and can comprehend more and more of the content!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Music by one of its greatest lovers
    Wynton Marsalis, one of the greatest musicians of his generation, has always been involved with teaching music. This video is a real must for those who love music - not only jazz, Marsalis' speciality, but all kindsof music. The fourth part, "Tackling the Monster" (in whichMarsalis shows his 12-step method of practicing music), is my favorite one.Inspiring. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting / Teachers & Students should see
    I feel this program should be seen by teachers and students who themselves have a misunderstanding of what life is like for students who need extra help.We all learn differently, and whose place is it to judge others ? Bottom line is I have seen too many times, students who will not seek help, due to stigma placed on them by peers, teachers, and family.Maybe we have lost sight of education and its purpose ... isn't getting an education the goal ?Great program for classes who cannot understand we are all not the same, we are individuals, learn differently, etc.The goal I had when purchasing was to show students who are rude and or cruel to other students in hope they will will have no misunderstandings why we all need help.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Misunderstood Minds
    I teach high school and this video did a few things for me. First, it showed me the importance of elementary school teachers in pin pointing learning disabilities. Second, it is important for parents to explore different possibilities for why students aren't performing. I have an 8 yr old nephew who was just diagnosed with severe dislexia and the original prescription was drugs for ADD. Explore the possibilities! Third, the specific story of the teenager drove home the importance of having smaller classes in high school. I have 35 kids in each class. I know that for some, that is small. I have 6 classes. It is impossible for teachers, most of us wish we could, to be able to cater to the needs of each individual student. The video showed the importance of not only giving a correct diagnosis for a students problems, but the importance of following through and working with the student, so he or she can really succeed. The real stories showed the emotion that not only the students go through, but the families as well. It is a firm reminder that children need understanding, not labels. I recommend Misunderstood Minds. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This 1990 production has been getting good words on Web parentingmessage boards and for good reason: it works. Dr. Thomas Phelan, a clinicalpsychologist, developed the program for his own children when they were young and in the thralls of hyperactivity and sibling rivalry. The two-hour show features his explanation of the program interspersed with dramatic scenarios and parent testimonials. The corny vignettes and repetitivetestimonials are somewhat extraneous, but the nut of the information isinvaluable. Phelan urges parents to get away from explaining everything to kids,who aren't listening to you anyway, he says, but he's not a spanking advocateeither. His approach is rational and simple: counting and then time-out.You've done that, you say? Well, watch the tape and see what you're doingwrong. His method has been honed by parents and teachers who have come back to him with refinements. These include ways to encourage kids to start good behaviors once the bad behaviors are under control. Phelan is personable anddryly funny (think parents as wild-animal trainers), and the absence of a hard- sell tone makes watching this production a pleasant experience. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Kid Cooperation WITHOUTScreaming or Threatening
    My wife and I both work outside the home.Mornings were insane in our house especially getting our 3, 4 and 7 year olds to cooperate just so that we could all be out the door on time.So my wife ordered this highly recommended tape for both of us to watch.Suprisingly, I found it entertaining, informative and specific with things to try.The counting especially worked on our 4 year old.This video held my attention and I liked the fact that I could replay a part to see and hear the exact words to use with my child.Having the specific example portrayed with real live children and their parents clearly and quickly got the point across."The Pocket Parent" is also a very helpful comlimentary quick reference toddler owner's manual; it is written only for parents of 2's, 3's, 4's, & 5's. It offers alternatives to "time-outs" and hundreds of short bulleted suggestions for every challenging behavior you can think of like bad words, biting, bedtime refusals, sibling fights, lying, tantrums, power sruggles, and whining that can drive you close to your wit's end.We highly recommend this video along with the A-Z trouble-shooting pocketguide.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best Parenting Video - full of humor and specifics !!!
    I have a 2 1/2 year old son whom I put him in Preschool three weeks ago and I have been called in many times to the school because he was not listening to the teacher/aide.The Director of the school thinks that there is something wrong with his hearing and suggested we get it checked.She went as far as to suggesting us contacting the special needs school.It was a Godsend that this video arrived the same day of the meeting with the Preschool Director.That evening, my husband and I sat down and watched it together (dropped my son off at Grandma & Grandpa's).I thought that it may be one of those boring text book stuff.To my surprise, it was entertaining, organized, and full of real life examples and scenerio played out by actors.Dr. Phelan provides us with very specific way and technique as to how to deal with our son when he does not listen. Dr. Phelan teaches us when we should start counting, when to listen to reasons, and where to adminster time-out. We tried it on our sonthe very next day and it WORKs - really like Magic.I no long have to yell at him or physically redirect him. It is so much less exhausting and it didn't have to escalate to the point where both him and I were angry. It has been 3 days since, and I only have to count up to 2 - He actually LISTENED!!!I am so delighted and grateful for Dr. Phelan's video.I plan to bring the video to school this Monday and convince them to watch it.If they don't that tells me that they are not willing to work with us and it is not a good preschool and we shall file a complain and go elsewhere.

    5-0 out of 5 stars New Stress Reliever- 1-2-3Magic!
    I'm a 34 year old, stay at home Mom, trying to raise a 6 year old daughter. She's a very demanding,stubborn,and mature child. I'm also raising a 16 year old with Down's Syndrome,and my husband is away alot with work. Before I saw the video of 1-2-3 Magic,I was at my wits end with my little tyrant,who was definitely running my home.Every supper time was horendous,getting out the door in the morning was the same. She was upsetting the whole family and I'd basically tried everything.She didn't like what was put before her for supper,and never finished it. Her focus was on dessert. Getting up for school and out the door in the morning was just as bad. She didn't have anything to wear and what she did have was stupid,according to her. I tried punishing her with the usual things like "time out",I yelled at her when my patience was gone,I took away her privileges,nothing worked. When I was asked to view this video 1-2-3 Magic,I was skepticle,but agreed anyway. After just a few minutes,I grabbed a pen and paper and started making notes. It was as if Dr.Phlen actually knew me and my child personally. That same day after watching the video,I waited patiently for my beloved 6 year old to come home,and I sat her down and explained briefly,the way things were going to be around here. I picked some things out of the video that was applicable to my child,and instantly started incorporating them. She was appalled that she had to start "paying me" for doing "her" chores,only if "she" refused to do them herself of course. She has also started making her bed before going to school in the morning,and getting better at the supper table. I would definitely incourage all parents to watch this video,it sure changed my family's life for the better. It was a relief! Thank-you Dr.Phelan for relieving some of my stress and enjoying my beloved 6 year old again. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars NOT a good choice
    For a video that is intended to be educational for very young children, this is the worst!My primary complaint is the serious speech impediment of the main character, Baby Bear.How does this help children learn to speak properly??In addition, his attitude is terrible.Finally, some of the animation (the letter "F" faces) is scary for young children.My daughter (who is about to turn 2) has several of the Sesame Street videos and this is the only one that I absolutely would NOT recommend.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!
    My two girls love to watch it all day over & over agan LOL. My girls are 3 & 1 and my 3 year with in the first two weeks she is starting to say the letters of the Alphabet along with the DVD. This is a must for kids early development.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Speech impediment of main character is an issue
    OK, on the good side, this video contains all the favorite Sesame Street characters; is fairly long; has puppets, cartoons, animals, music, and some celebrity cameos; and most importantly, teaches kids the alphabet in a fun way. My 4 children have enjoyed it. However, one big issue with this video is the speech of the main character, Baby Bear. Sesame Street has always used the most ordinary looking children (not model-types) and has made its muppets with varying character traits, apparently, in an effort to show children that people come in all shapes and sizes - very "PC" and this was true even in the 70's before being "PC" was even defined as such. Having an instructional video with a speech-impaired puppet, though, is problematic. Forget trying to show kids that "Oh, some children speak like that and so that's part of the real world and it's OK". No. This is an educational video and I'm surprised and annoyed that this bear seems to say every possible word there is with a mispronouned "R", or as he says "aww" (rhymes with raw-ooo). So everytime this video is watched, my 2 year old thinks that it's correct to say "Beawwww" instead of Bear, "lettewwws" instead of letters, "twide" insted of tried, etc. Besides the educational shortcomings, the Awwwws begin to seriously grate on my nerves. If you can live with the fact that a main character in serious need of speech therapy is teaching your kids how to speak, then you may find this video enjoyable. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a good movie to learn about math skills
    I enjoyed this movie so much 'cuz it help me thru my math skills and how I can use them to study and learn. This is the best school movie I ever enjoyed incl. the soundtrack. I was 5 or 6 when I grew up w/ this and I liked it a lot. I mean a WHOLE lot.
    5-0 out of 5 stars This has 2 much excitement
    you tired of learning multipliplacation by talking and no videos?Well,those days are over because of Schoolhouse Rock!-Multiplication Rock (1973).This is more fun then just having to talk about multiplication and not understanding it.It has songs,too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Schoolhouse Rock Testimonial
    When I was in third grade I never could get my times tables down pat- the sevens and twelves proved especially tricky. So my mom checked out this video from the library, and that changed immediately. I could rattle off my multiplication tables as fast as everybody else after watching this only a few times. Amazing! That same year I got put in advanced math. Coincidence? I think not! All the songs were just so catchy. I loved it when I saw the NIKE commercial playing "Three is the Magic Number", that's one of my favorites. Anyways, parents, this is a great buy for your kids and I doubt that you'll get tired of the tunes. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Don't Know Why It Worked But It Worked
    We started trying potty train my son when he turned two and things moved along slowly.After we got this video it was like we hit a switch.All of a sudden my son would run off to the bathroom anouncing his intent as he went.It is silly and simple, but he enjoyed watching it and obviously connected with the message.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Boring, Short and too graphic
    First of all this video is too short, it shows the same thing over and over and it gets old really fast.Neither me or my son can stand to watch it more than a couple of times.The song is kind of catchy, but it gets old fast too.The potty does look different from any kinds I have seen as well.On another note, it shows it in his diaper when he has gone potty, I mean isn't that a little much?I think its just plain gross and my son probably didn't evenknow what it was supposed to be anyways.I know one of the reviewers said the kids looked too young but some of them looked too old too.I swear one of the kids in it looks like hes four.I wouldn't waste your money on this video, the repetetive nature of it bores the child too quickly.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good video for starters
    My son loves this video and watches it excessively. It does present the partsthe body involved in pottying, but how can you expect your kids to go if they don't understand how and why they go. It's a cartoon so it's not like its realistically graphic. The potty shown in the video is the older bowl style so you child might be confused by the newer models, but kids are smart. I'd say this would be rare. I'm only mentioning it as a warning, so you're prepared to have to hunt down a similar style potty. (The Baby Bjorn potty is the closest I found and my son associated the 2 right away by acting out part of the video when he saw the potty.) My only complaint really is that it doesn't detail what goes into learning how to use the potty. It just says "he sat and sat but nothing came out. Later he made poopoo and weewee but not exactly in the potty." (shows an accident on the floor) Then the mommy keeps changing a diaper and later he sat on the potty and was able to go in the potty. It's probably all kids need to know, but I was a little disappointed that it didn't really present all the practice and work that must be done before most kids go in the potty. Of course, this way it leaves it open for the different training methods. ... Read more

    My daughter loved this video, but she never seemed to notice the children on the potty.She loved the clown at the birthday party.Birthday party?! What does a birthday party have to do with going potty? I have to admit that the birthday boy didn't go potty, but his sister Katie did. (Katie didn't use a potty chair or a potty seat.She looked about two years old and used the toilet.)Then, it showed Lizzie who was reading and going to the potty.Eww! I didn't like the three boys going to the potty scene.Disgusting! I'm Mary and I don't reccommend this!

    Learn some of the hottest dance moves you've seen in music videos, awardshows, and concerts from the likes of Britney Spears, 'N Sync, and Jordan Knightfrom this 55-minute video. Darrin Henson moves with limbs of taffy as he teachesthe energetic and innovative moves he choreographed for the biggest celebrities.He breaks down the patterns into individual moves, then quickly puts the movestogether, and then you perform the pattern with video clips from the stars forwhom it was choreographed. Great fun! Unless you're blessed with instant recall,though, you'll need to rewind segments of the tape frequently to learn themoves. And unfortunately, Henson cues his own "right" and "left" instead of theviewer's (the opposite, because you're facing him), so you have to continuallyreverse his directions in order to mirror his moves. Recommended for limber,experienced dancers--coordination required! Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great Popping and Locking Routine
    Most of the choreography on this DVD is lackluster and uninspiring. But there's a great--and very simple--popping/locking routine at the end. It's very different from everything else on this DVD. And there are some brief but helpful technique points at the end of the DVD.

    5-0 out of 5 stars OMGOSH!!!!
    This video was great if you're a beginner. I had NO IDEA what I was doing, and my friends were still amazed by the dance moves I got down! You only have to watch it like 10 times, and it is SO WORTH IT!!!! But I think it's only for Beginners-Advanced Dancers.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not for Beginners
    This is a fun video to watch and it has a good message. But its NOT as easy as "1,2,3". I teach some of these same moves to my students and we have to take a great deal of time with each element of the more complex steps. This video is great if you can already dance this style and just want to learn some new moves. But it will be very dissapointing for someone who has never tried this before. I have it in DVD and that allows me to review and slow down the action much easier than you could with VHS. Still, it is challenging. Worth having, but not as a first instructional. Also, it is a bit dated by todays standards. But still fun. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Prudence--the round-cheeked, pony-tailed heroine of Alona Frankel's book of the same name--can provide further inspiration to young daughters with her video adventure. As with her print counterpart, the animated Prudence wonders if her grandmother's gift could be a birdbath or a flowerpot before she settles down to the business at hand. Unlike the book, Prudence gets a grand introduction in the form of a music video of "The Potty Song," complete with toddlers frolicking among portable potties. A lyric sheet is included and moms will appreciate the equality mindedness of songwriter Art Frankel ("Wee-wee goes there / Poo-poo goes there / Then Daddy wipes behind me and that is that!"). The second half of this 24-minute video is a "Parent's Guide," in which a prominent pediatrician goes over the basics: signs of readiness, terms, methods, and expected ages (for example, girls usually train before boys, but don't force it).

    5-0 out of 5 stars An effective little movie!
    My little girl liked Prudence and the little potty chair. Yes, the potty chair doesn't look like the potty that everyone I know uses, but my two year old wasn't that analytical about the look of the potty. She knew what the little girl was trying to do- what she herself tried to do, and failed. When that little girl made the "poo poo" in the potty, my daughter went into the bathroom and sat and did it too. She must have thought that if SHE can do it, I can too.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Great if you plan to use a chamber pot.
    This DVD is weird.It looks like the little girl is peeing in a water pitcher.We sent it back along with the book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A total Joy to Watch
    This was a joy to watch. Just as fun as the book by the same author and same title.My 20 month old daughter is very excited every time I play this tape.She sings and dances along with the tape.I don't see yet how it will help me in teaching her to use the potty but it is fun to watch. Consistency, patience and probably this tape will work. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Hearing-impaired (and Academy Award-winning) actress Marlee Matlin bookends two "Blue's Clues" episodes and gives the tape its theme by teaching Steve some American Sign Language. In the first story--in which Steve and friends attempt to ascertain where a certain blue dog would like to eat her snack--Steve teaches some signs and follows signs of another kind on poster boards. The written signs, of course, lead to the canine's clues, designated by her famous paw print. Blue Scadoo finds Steve jumping into Jane's book and meeting her deaf friend Carly, who tells a story in sign language. In the second episode, Steve tries to figure out where Blue wants to go by using a map the cunning dog has left behind. He eventually jumps into a Candyland-style game, finds Blue with the Gingerbread Girl, and winds up going to the library. Children ages 2 to 5 will enjoy and learn from this 51-minute video.

    My daughter is deaf and loves watching blue's clue, so I was some what disappointed with the limited signing.There was a small protion of consistent signing during story time, but that was a small segment.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Delightful
    When they say All Kinds of Signs. They mean all Kinds of Signs. My daycare kids love this video. It's really just induction to sign language as well as other signs such as street signs, bathroom sign etc. Blue's Clues - All Kinds of Signs is a cute helpful video just don't expect it to be a great sign language video.
    4-0 out of 5 stars More on ASL for kids
    This is an entertaining video. My son loves Blue's Clues...but not until he was about 2 yrs old.Earlier, he did not "get it" in terms of "finding a paw print". Another great Blue's episode that I am not sure is still out is "ABCs & 123s". At 25 months, I swear my son understands how READING works from this video!The counting part is really good too.My son tries to count everything! However, for those of you looking for more ASL sign language for kids, the BEST by far, are the series called Signing Times.website is www.signingtime.com There are six videos/DVDs in the series that increase in complication.The first one is "basic" signs like milk, eat, apple, more, etc.I started showing this to my son at 8 months and he was signing to ME from the highchair at 10 months.Then, I added the next volume(please, thank you, share, etc) to his viewing and so on.At 25 months, he knows over 50 signs and uses them. He sometimes can't make the sign exactly right with his hands...but,I know what he means to say and that is the goal (increased communication between you)!I must say, I've learned all the signs myself!Her style of teaching is entertaining and it sinks in! www.signingtime.com check it out. ...

    I am 39 , and I grew up with SHR every Saturday Morning. There are some great ones on this tape, but If you are like me, you wanted more, so I go the DVD set. All in all, I would recommend the complete dvd set, but if you only want a good taste of SHR, then get this tape. You cant go wrong either way. Hey, its SHR.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Tricks Still Work
    I bought this several years ago for my sister at Christmas, and heard it was fine.But just reading the list of videos that are on this tape, I see them flash right before my eyes. Therefore, I feel perfectly qualified to review this product for you.I don't quite know what I would have done without Schoolhouse Rock.Well, maybe not Grammar Rock, although those were some of my favorites ("Conjunction Junction, what's your function?").But I know that when I come up against a problem in my adult life that forces me to multiply an odd combination,like 13 and 7, I immediately go back to a skater telling me "Now here's a chance to brush up on your new math tricks, 'cause 8 times 12 is the same as 10 times 8 plus 2 times 8...80 plus 16, 96!"And when the MSM has me totally discombobulated about what's happening with the law that was supposed to be passed last year about the Hossenpfeffers not killing off the Bellywhackers, suddenly I find myself singing to myself "I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill..." and I remember the process.And how long it can take!(Now, you have to understand, teachers for babyboomers took special classes on how to make history and civics as boring as possible.So Schoolhouse Rock and Little House on the Prairie were our only exposure to what our past was like.Accurate or not.)

    I hate that we own this video!! Of all the "There Goes a..." videos, this one is ALL FLUFF!! I love the concept of these videos but was really dissappionted in this one: Dave and Becky are particularly annoying with their futile attempts at humor in very un-funny fiascos that even my kids were bored with- and they LOVE these videos!! Do your family a favor, and skip this one, but get others that ARE GREAT: Dumptrucks, Tractors, Bulldozers and Trains, to name a few. ENJOY!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best of this popular kids video series
    Deputy Dave and Deputy Becky are at their charming, goofy best as they explore the world of police vehicles and equipment, including cars, helicopters, boats, bikes, horses, radios and body equipment.They also spend some time with a K-9 unit and get locked in a jail cell.The usual antics are funny and not as perilous as is sometimes the case in the series.Kids love these videos and it won't drive the adults crazy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars see a variety of police situations...my kids love this video
    The show is hosted by Becky and Dave, who pretend they are police officers as they host this show. As usual, they continue with their goofy antics, doing things wrong because they don't follow directions as explained, they get into trouble, etc. All the while they introduce us to various police officers in different settings and situations. They ask the officers questions about their jobs and the officers answer them in a manner that is not condescending or patronizing to children.Read more
