Just in time for kids getting ready to go back to school, Nickelodeon’s Bubble Guppies are here to help ease the transition from summer fun to heading back to class in Bubble Guppies: Get Ready for School. This DVD contains six fun-filled episodes that center around a school theme for the most part (only two episodes really have anything to do with school) and features some pretty cool extras that kids will enjoy.
In the DVD’s self-titled episode, the guppies help out a friend that’s scared on their first day of school, and the gang helps out the only way they know how, by singing songs and showing that school can be a fun place to learn and make friends. The other school-themed episode is “Good Morning, Mr. Grumpfish”, which deals with the guppies having a substitute teacher that they help get to know the class by singing about their favorite things that’s really just a clip-show of past episodes and songs.The other four episodes included on here aren’t really centered around school, but they’re still just as exciting and fun as any fan of the series can expect.
When the episodes have ended, there’s a few neat extras for kids to check out. The coolest extra that children are sure to love is the free pencil case that’s included with the DVD. It’s a nice pouch featuring colorful art of the characters all around it which also has a secure zipper on top that kids are sure to use for carrying their pencils and crayons in. To help go along with the case, there’s two short music videos under the DVD extras called “Get Ready for School” and “Pencil Case”. I really got a laugh out of the pencil case song as it’s a pretty funny parody of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” that parents and their kids will find themselves laughing at together.
Nickelodeon has done a great job with the Bubble Guppies: Get Ready for School DVD. The company has done a great job bringing these six episodes to DVD which come in colorful and clear along with some pretty neat extras that parents and kids will love, with the bonus pencil case being a really nice touch. If you’re looking for something to help make going back to school easier on the kids, then look no further. This collection of episodes is sure to keep children’s spirits afloat with underwater Nick Jr. fun.
