There seems to be no shortage of fun, educational shows on Nick Jr as they just keep coming. The latest one out of the oven is Butterbean’s Cafe, which makes its way to DVD and follows some fairies that know how to cook up tasty treats and loads of excitement for kids and families to enjoy.

Featuring seven episodes from the show including a special, double-length one, this DVD introduces everyone to a fairy named Butterbean and the adventures she gets into running her own café and bakery in the town of Puddlebrook. Along with her little sister Cricket, she also has her friends Dazzle, Poppy and Jasper helping out and getting in on the fun of using magic, smarts and teamwork to solve problems and make their cafe the best around.

Whether it’s learning how to make banana bread in the nicely titled episode “Grandma Nana Banana Bread”, or having someone in town switch out a terrible cake with one that Butterbean made in “Wedding Cake Switcharoo”, these friends can always count on each other to fix problems while having some educational fun along the way. From learning new recipes, to showing kindness and gratitude toward others, there’s always something cool for these fairies and viewers to pick up.

Watching this with my younger cousins who love Nick Jr shows was a nice treat, as we had a good time with it and a better time eating some of the sweet treats featured in the show as some of their parents made some of the recipes shown in the series. This brings me to only special feature this DVD has, but it’s one of the best I’ve seen, which are some recipe cards for kids and their parents to work on together to make the exact same goodies Butterbean and her friends come up with.

If you’re looking for the next fun show for kids and those young at heart, you’ll want to check out and even make some of the sweet treats from the Butterbean’s Cafe DVD. While the disc may only be 90 minutes long, you’re sure to have tons of excitement watching this multiple times along with cooking up all of the various recipes included that makes sure the fun won’t end anytime soon.
