I've been showing the puppet show series to my K, 1 and 2 kids and I need an update (to DVD) and I'm wondering if there is something better out there. Is this appropriate for the younger kids? Will they be engaged for 30 minutes?

BEST ANSWER: This is definitely appropriate for younger kids, but it's hard for me to say how well it will hold their attention. I can say that it's a very well made series; it's filled with great music, musicians, and information.
