Two preschooler favorite series have new movies released this week on DVD and On Demand.

Barney: I Love My Friends The big purple dinosaur and his friends learn some valuable lessons about what it means to be a friend — keeping promises, sharing feelings, and sticking together.  Included: a read-aloud book of hugs and a sing-along “If You’re Happy and You Know It”

I have one copy of this DVD to give away!   Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with Barney in the subject line and tell me your favorite Barney song.  Don’t forget your address!  I’ll pick a winner at random on January 9.

Angelina Ballerina: Sweet Valentine The adorable mouse dances, skates, and sings in five episodes about love and friendship, helping each other, celebrating Ms. Mimi, and being inclusive.  Included: Angelina’s picture game and “Get Up and Dance” music video
