“Daniel’s Birthday”
It’s Daniel’s Birthday! Daniel is very excited to go to Baker Aker’s Bakery with his mom to pick out a cake for his party. When they arrive home after a bumpy ride on Trolley, Daniel is disappointed to find that his cake is smushed. It turns out...smushed cake is yummy too!

“I Love You, Mom”
Daniel wants to surprise Mom tiger with her favorite banana bread because he knows it is one way to say “I love you.” Dad and Daniel head to Baker Aker’s Bakery, where they learn about the bread-making process. Daniel and Dad surprise Mom and she happily shares the banana bread gift with them too!

“A Trip to the Enchanted Garden”
The Tiger family is making strawberry pancakes for breakfast this morning, but when Mom looks more closely in the kitchen, she realizes there are no more strawberries left. They all head to the Enchanted Garden, where Mom Tiger shows Daniel the strawberry patch. Daniel is very curious, and learns that if he looks closely, he may be able to answer his own questions about how strawberries grow and learn something new.

“Fruit Picking Day”
Daniel and his friends are enjoying a Fruit Festival in the Enchanted Garden. Prince Wednesday grows upset because his big brother Prince Tuesday can pick the highest fruit off the tree branches, but he can’t. He wishes he wasn’t so little! Then, when the festival-goers spot a very special magical golden pear on the ground, Prince Wednesday is the only one little enough to reach it.

“Be a Vegetable Taster!”
Teacher Harriet introduces Daniel and his friends to the school’s vegetable garden and convinces them to pick out some healthy veggies for their snack. They explore the garden, picking and trying different vegetables…with mixed results!

“Daniel Tries a New Food”
Miss Elaina is having dinner with the Tiger family and she encourages Daniel to try some new food: Veggie Spaghetti and Banana Swirl. Daniel is convinced he won’t like Veggie Spaghetti, even though he’s never tried it before. Miss Elaina encourages him to be adventurous and try the new food. She does the same herself, and even though she doesn’t like all of it, she’s proud of herself for trying.

“Baking Mistakes”
Daniel and Prince Wednesday are at the bakery helping Baker Aker make cookies for the Neighborhood. But Prince Wednesday accidentally spills the milk! No crying though because mistakes can happen. Soon the boys learn they can try to fix their mistakes – and learn from them, too. Trolley cookies for everyone!

“Daniel’s Allergy”
When Daniel tries a peach for the first time, he learns he is allergic to the fruit. Dad and Doctor Anna take care of him, and Doctor Anna tells Daniel how he can take care of himself, too.
The first TV series inspired by the iconic, award-winning MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD stars 4-year-old Daniel Tiger, son of the original program’s Daniel Striped Tiger, who invites young viewers into his world, giving them a kid’s-eye view of his life. One of the key ingredients that makes the series a standout is its groundbreaking use of catchy musical strategies, grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark social-emotional curriculum, that reinforce each theme and that preschoolers and parents both sing – and use – together in their daily lives. DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, which debuted in September 2012, airs daily on PBS KIDS (check local listings).

Disclosure: I received a copy of this DVD to review to facilitate my post.  All opinions expressed are my own.  Your opinion  may differ.


  1. This looks like a great dvd for little ones. PBS has some great programs.

    1. I agree. They have true quality programming.

  2. This sounds like a great DVD especially for those kids with food and other allergies! It would also be good for other kids to understand what those kids go through!

    1. This is so true and had my thoughts exactly.

  3. PBS has been around for so many years with great shows for pre schoolers and young children. I love the concept of Tiger's Neighborhood (so much better than when I was young with the Coyote always running of the edge of the cliff.) The idea of food and the healthy aspects and not so like allergies.

  4. You know how much Mr Rogers loved his Daniel Tiger. I think Daniel has taken over where he left off.

  5. My granddaughters love daniel tiger as much or more then i loved Mr. Rogers. Hope he is enjoying the after life.
