One of the most important things to pack when we head out on a family car trip is a set of DVD's that will keep Liam entertained throughout the trip without Mom and Dad and big sister, Robyn pulling our hair out and wishing we were anywhere but the car... so when the Big Box of Playdates Vol. 2 arrived just before we left, I was so excited! One of the things I usually love about the other Nickelodeon DVD's I've reviewed is that they take one show and put together a medley of great things about a topic, but this time the 3 DVD set combines episodes from six different Nick Jr. Faves - Dora the Explorer; Go, Diego, Go!; The Wonder Pets; Yo Gabba Gabba; Blues Clues and Ni Hao, Kai Lan!
This set is great because you can put on one DVD for each leg of the trip and no one gets bored! We especially liked the Summer Vacation set, although since our road trip, Liam has taken to watching the Brothers and Sisters DVD the most!
Just check out all of the great titles that you get in this one set:
