Blue's Clues - Blue's Big Holiday [VHS]
If sleuthing, not Santa-stalking, is the name of your 2- to 5-year-old's game, grab your scarf and settle in for Blue's Big Holiday, a festive double feature that doesn't dissolve into folkloric fluff. The title episode arranges itself gently around December's gift-giving trifecta. Steve and Blue, off delivering presents, pick up on some peculiar goings-on at the homes of their pals: At Wynonna Judd's, a tree twinkles in the living room; at Lisa Datz's, candles symbolizing a miracle burn brightly; and at Tyrese's, corn and a cup, tokens of community togetherness, create a curiosity-arousing tableau. Who knew Blue hung out in such swanky celebrity circles? No matter--they're a mere sideshow here. The mystery we're meant to tackle is not who celebrates what and why, but which patch Blue wants to add to her holiday quilt. "A Snowy Day" also circumvents the seasonal trappings in favor of a romp through the white stuff. Before bundling up, though, Steve will need to get to the bottom of what Blue wants to play (hints: a carrot and a snowball factor in). He'll also have to skidoo into a calendar to fix an inappropriate winter scene (swimsuits in the snow?) and match some falling snowflake patterns for Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper. What's best about this collection is its bold choice to go against the holiday herd and bag the moralizing. Instead of getting all wrapped up in the dog days of December, it keeps its concept on a short leash, which means plenty of skill-builders and problem solving. It's perfect for preschool fans of the show, and parents hoping to head off the annual hoopla with calm, low-key holiday fare. --Tammy La Gorce

They Love Blue's CluesDec 30, 2014
By Rosemarie Spannos
I order this as a special treat for the children in the preschool classroom I work in. They just adore Blue and they loved watching this video. I order a preowned one and when it came it looked almost brand new. The seller even put it in a brand new clam shell case. When we played it for the kids it played with no problems what so ever, my coworker was so surprised that it was a used copy. The teacher was even excited to know that the sale of this VHS went to help sheltered animals.

A good holiday special for kidsOct 28, 2001
By carrie peck
I thought that the vidio was great. It teaches kids a little about the way that different religions spend the holiday season, and that they may know some kids that do celebrate those holidays. It also teaches kids to bundle up to play out side, share with their friends, and have fun.
