Arthur: Brothers & Sisters...Out Now! Review & Giveaway!

Last week PBS released a great new DVD for the kids...Arthur: Brothers and Sisters is out now and was a big hit here at Reviewed by Mom.  Here is the scoop....


PBS Distribution has released “ARTHUR: BROTHERS AND SISTERS on DVD. Join Arthur, his family and friends for eight stories of the hit PBS KIDS series about the joys – and challenges – of having a brother or sister. From D.W. copying her big brother’s every move, to the Tibble twins discovering that Tommy is two whole minutes older than Timmy, this DVD features loads of sibling fun.


D.W. the Copycat
Yet another personality change for D.W., who’s decided that from now on, she’ll be just like Arthur. She’ll walk like him, talk like him, follow him wherever he goes. How can Arthur persuade D.W. that the world is only big enough for one Arthur?

Arthur’s Baby”
Arthur is not too sure he’s ready for a new baby in the house. What do babies do besides cry..crY ..cRY...CRY!  As the months fly by, Arthur imagines life with the new baby. Some of his fears seem to ring true: baby Kate doesn’t like him. Or does she?

D.W.’s Baby
Living with a baby is no picnic. No one ever told D.W. that babies cried all the time, and threw up on your clothes, and got all the attention. Just how long will Baby Kate be hanging around, anyway? And who would even miss D.W. if she ran away to Button Island? 

Arthur’s First Sleepover
Have you ever been afraid of the dark?  Despite D.W.’s threat of aliens, Arthur sets his tent for his first sleepover. D.W.’s mad that she can’t be a part of the sleepover, but she’ll have some fun of her own – with the help of alien lights. But, who will have the last joke: Arthur and his friends, D.W., or the aliens?

Francine Redecorates
Francine likes bats and lizards, while Catherine’s taste runs to lace. Normally, it’s fun to be different, but not if you’re two sisters sharing the same room. Space gets very tight at the Frensky’s, when this odd couple decides they’ve had enough togetherness. 

Sue Ellen’s Little Sister
Arthur and Francine would love to lend their sisters to Sue Ellen, who’s sick of being an only child. But Sue Ellen realizes you should be careful what you wish for, after her quest for the perfect sibling leads her to...D.W.

Two Minutes
Power shifts in the Tibble household when the twins find out Tommy is two minutes older than Timmy. Frustrated in his new role, Timmy enlists the help of an expert older brother tamer: D.W.!

The Pageant Pickle
School is almost out and Arthur can hardly wait for those lazy summer days by Muffy’s pool. Nothing could ruin such a happy time of year…except maybe – D.W.’s Spring Pageant!

Our Thoughts:  Arthur has long been a favorite in our house.  I love the family dynamics and the problem solving skills showcased throughout.  The episodes on this collection are perfect for this time of year when kiddos just might be getting tired of their siblings during summer vacation.  Each show does a wonderful job of describing real life conflict among siblings but an even better job is done showing kind resolution.  Our favorites were "Arthur's Baby" (my daughter is currently all about babies but NOPE I am  not expecting number 4!) and "Two Minutes" which we could really empathize with as my twins are two minutes apart :).

Buy It:  You can purchase this DVD at all major retailers as well as Amazon by clicking HERE.

Win It!  I am so excited to tell you that PBS Kids is giving one lucky Reviewed by Mom follower a DVD copy of Arthur:  Brothers & Sisters!  Thanks so much to the sponsor and good luck!
