    The Wonder Pets are going on holiday to the beach, but when they get there, they find out you can't take a vacation from saving animals. There's a hermit crab that has outgrown his shell and the Wonder Pets will need to a replacement shell. In the second part, the Wonder Pets have to help a baby dolphin trapped in a fishing net.
  4. Blue's Clues: Blue's Big Car Trip
    Donovan and Blue are going on a car trip and together, but Donovan doesn't know where they are going. (Fortunately, he's not driving.) Blue knows where they are going, so they play Blue's Clues to pass the time till they get to their destination.

    The Hula Ducks are throwing a party and Kai-Lan and Ye Ye are going to the party. They all have a great time, till Tolee gets eliminated first in musical chairs, twice in a row. Now the rest have to figure out how to make him feel better.

Also coming out this week is Big Box of Play Dates 2, which includes Summer Vacation, as well as Sisters and Brothers (review) and We Love Our Friends (review).

The Verdict

Nick Jr Favorites: Summer Vacation is good value for your money when compared to most other TV on DVD releases aimed at preschoolers. And if you don't have both of the previous releases in Big Box of Play Dates 2, it is an even better deal.
