great
22 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm 15 and since were out of school i have to watch toddler shows. The backyardigans is a kid show, but i like it. I thinks the songs and dance are the best. I love the theme song!

For anyone out there trying to get their kids to learn something. Watch this show. They use the imagination to go places and that is great!

I never used mine growing up, and that i regret. I always took everything seriously. But the Backyardigans are enough to pay back 15 yrs old seriousness!

I'd recommend this show to anyone growing up. A relief from Dora & Blues Clues. YOu know, the "typicals"
