Jake and the Never Land Pirates on DVD!

DISNEY JUNIOR'S #1 SERIES 
"JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES" 
RELEASES ITS FIRST MUSIC SOUNDTRACK & DVD THIS FALL

ALBUM SET FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 20
DVD SET FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 27

It was only a few months ago that we discovered Disney JR. A friend of mine introduced my daughter to Mickey's Clubhouse and she started asking for Mickey on a pretty regular basis, so I checked the TV schedule and put it on for her. Little did I know that the rest of the morning was also filled with great shows that she really enjoyed!

One of the shows she started to get really into was Jake and the Never Land Pirates. Each episode is based on the adventures of three kids, Jake, Izzy, and Chubby, as they try to outsmart Captain Hook and his side kick, Smee. I love that they have a show with two very familiar characters from the beloved movie, Peter Pan. 

The show is just a lot of fun. The characters are engaging and the adventures are exciting for little kids. They collect gold doubloons when they complete missions and always count them up at the end. They do incorporate educational aspects into fun. And they have a really funny duo, Sharky and Bones, who pop up throughout to sing funny pirate songs. They are quite the characters! The music is catchy and upbeat, so dancing along is a must.

This DVD contains 7 episodes along with 2 special bonus features.  In one bonus feature Jake teaches you how to talk like a pirate, yo ho! And the other is a really fun music feature. You have a collection of music videos that you can use in sing along mode or regular mode. This was a hit with my daughter! She doesn't really sing along yet, except for trying to repeat what they say, but she was dancing all over the place! And the DVD came with an eye patch, so she was dressed for the part. It also comes with a 7-track CD, so you can bring the fun on the road.

This DVD is a ton of fun and great for young children! I would definitely recommend that you check it out on DVD or try and catch an episode on Disney JR. You can purchase this DVD for $19.99!
