The Super Music Friend Show is on!
For parents of children that need to mainline Yo Gabba Gabba!, Nickelodeon has made life a bit easier with this three-disc collection of the monster hit kids show. Party in a Box delivers 288 minutes worth of DJ Lance Rock, Muno, Plex, Toodee and Brobee and if you don't have the "Friends" song memorized by now, just wait: this release will ensure that your nights are besieged by the tune running through your head forevermore.
Here's what's in the box:
The Dancey Dance Bunch!
As is the game-plan, each disc features the episode of the same name and three other shows that are tenuously related.
But really, it doesn't matter; if you're at all familiar with the workings of Yo Gabba Gabba!—my favorite toddler-centric show by the way—the themes are consistent. DJ Lance wants to get your rugrats up and dancing, with any lessons being taught (e.g., eating well, not biting your friends, using your imagination) woven into catchy song and dance routines. It's a great set-up and a presentation that my one-year-old absolutely adores.
If you didn't buy any of these discs when they were released individually, and you have little porkers lumbering around the house that can do for a bit of gross motor skill, I wholeheartedly recommend scoring this Party in a Box. The sleepless nights due to incessant replaying of "Don't Give Up!" in your mind are a small price to pay for the emotional well-being of your child.
Standard-issue Nick release: full frame, 2.0 stereo, no extras.
Not Guilty. Do the Plex!!!
