Mates Austin, Pablo, Tyrone, Uniqua, and Tasha hit the high seas--and a couple of high C's!--in four swashbuckling stories from the animated children's TV series.

No need to go searching for buried treasure--it's right here in this action-packed DVD! Where else can preschoolers learn to navigate rough waters--literally and figuratively--while dancing along to a soundtrack that introduces them to garage band music, reggae, and mambo? There is so much to look at, listen to, and interact with in these tales--just like Captain Austin's hand, young viewers will be hooked!

For Babies 0-2?

MAYBE Babies may not know a lot about pirates or understand why everyone's going around growling, "Arrrr!" but they're still likely to enjoy these episodes one at a time. Two-year-olds won't be able to resist imitating the pirates' empowering "Arrrr!" themselves, and won't have any trouble getting up to dance when Uniqua sings, "You can't be a pirate if you're sitting in your seat."

FOR PRESCHOOLERS 3-5?

YES Preschoolers will adore learning and trying out new words like "scallywag," "scurvy" and "heave ho." They'll agree with Pablo that walking the plank "sounds like fun," and they'll quickly develop what the Backyardigans call "piratitude." They'll understand the friends' wariness about going to Pirate Camp--"What if we fall or run aground or get lost and never found? We might get sick and turn bright green, and those pirates mght be really, really mean."--and may surprise you one day with a "Shiver me timbers!"

FOR KIDS 6-9?

MAYBE Most kids in this age group have outgrown the Backyardigans, but those who still feel a little nostalgic for them will find much to enjoy. They'll especially find the humor in the classic "X" marks the spot idea twisted to include a "T," "U," "V" and "W!"
