This new gift-set from the popular PBS KIDS series offers two ways to interact with Daniel Tiger. The DVD “Daniel Tiger’s Happy Holidays” includes seven grr-ific tales, one of which, Snowflake Day!, is a special double episode. The gift-set also features a Daniel Tiger figurine with movable head and arms. Kids will love watching these fun-filled stories while playing with the Daniel Tiger figurine.

The first TV series inspired by the iconic, award-winning MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, from The Fred Rogers Company, 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. As they closely follow and share Daniel’s everyday adventures, preschoolers ages 2-4 and their families learn the fun and practical strategies and skills necessary for growing and learning. One of the key ingredients that sets the series apart is its groundbreaking use of catchy, musical strategies that reinforce each theme and that preschoolers and parents will both sing – and use – together in their daily lives. DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, which debuted in September 2012, airs Monday-Friday on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
