I have two little nephews (who are both getting close to 2 years old) who are starting to like these characters now. It's so much fun to introduce them to ones that I already know about and appreciate. What I really like about the HIT Favorites is that they are perfectly suited for the younger crowd. They are all about learning, caring, sharing, imagination and fun. With the singing, dancing and many adventures young kids will enjoy every minute of the Friends & Family DVD.

You can find the Friends and Family DVD from HIT Entertainment online and in stores now. Plus check out all the cool activities and more at
