Barney: Imagine with Barney Review

I received the below mentioned DVD for review purposes from HiT Entertainment and Lionsgate. All opinions are my own, or as otherwise indicated below. Barney: Imagine with Barney is now available on DVD, Digital Download and Video on Demand as of July 9, 2013 from Lionsgate And HIT Entertainment.
Imagine with Barney
Being the dad of a six-year old boy, this disc was too young for my son. With that said, I gave this to a cousin with a three-year old boy and girl to watch and critique.
Purple Dinosaur
First, a description of the program and synopsis...

Trusted by moms and adored by children, Barney displays sharing, caring, imagining, dancing and learning on television, online and through live events, home entertainment, toys and publishing. In 2013, Barney is celebrating over 25 years of sharing, caring and imagination with the Barney 25 Million Hugs campaign. Barney is inviting fans of all ages to help him reach his goal of sharing 25 million Barney hugs around the world through the site and via email, Facebook and Twitter.  

Come along for an imagination extravaganza! Join Barney and his friends as they use their imaginations to visit places near and far and explore their creativity through drawing, song and dance! The dinos explore a tropical island paradise when they bring a painting to life and go for a ride when they build their very own bus and airplane using imagination and teamwork! The dinos always know how to have a tee-rific time with creativity and good friends!

I'm working on getting longer reviews from my cousin now that they got a second DVD... Basically, the kids loved the songs, especially the bonus music videos. The big purple guy was enjoyed by the kids, even if mom might be sick of him by now. He kept them entertained enough for mom to get things done around the house. Good positive messages.


  1. I remember the days when I was ready to go crazy my son watched Barney so much. I can see what the attraction is for the little ones, but I am sure glad those days are over for me! LOL!

  2. Gosh - I didn't know Barney was still around! I'll have to get this for my step-grandson and see if he likes him.

  3. I bet my son would like this. I still remember when my younger brother used to love barney.

  4. Oh I love Barney! He was once the babysitter to my eldest! Barney DVDs had been a great help keeping her still and letting my do the house chores!

  5. I know my grandson would love this. His Dad used to watch Barney for hours and I was able to make dinner and clean the house knowing he would sit in front of the TV for as long as Barney was on.

  6. Oh, I remember when my daughter used to be so crazy about him! We had purple Barney's everywhere. After awhile though, that song got on my nerves and was so glad when something else took it's place!

  7. Oh this is perfect for my granddaughters. They are wild for Barney, and just sit transfixed. "I love you, you love me...". They will love this! scain54 (at) aol (dot) com
