Olivia is an all-new pre-school series from the creators of the Max & Ruby television series, based on the beloved books. The series is designed to invite preschoolers into the life--both real and fantasy--of an adventurous, can-do 6-year-old girl, her family and friends. Olivia is innately playful and imaginative. She moves in and out of fantasy and reality, imagining herself as a super hero, a pop star, or a mommy. Pre-schoolers love fun and creativity and no one embraces creativity and dramatic play like Olivia. Olivia’s world is created in CG animation, giving the show a 3-D look and feel. The series launched on Nick Jr and Noggin January 26, 2009.

We love OliviaAug 16, 2009
My toddler and I actually saw this TV show on Nickelodeon before we even knew about the books. We fell in love with the show, so I bought the book and it is my daughter's absolute FAVORITE. One of her first words is actually "Olivia". So of course, we give this DVD 5 stars. I've been hoping and waiting for months for them to release a DVD of it and I was so excited when they did! I just wish it had a few more episodes, of course ;) but it is a nice length for the price.
Here are the episodes included:
Olivia Acts Out
Olivia and Grandma's Visit
Olivia Plays Piano
Olivia Trains Her Cat
Olivia and The Crystal Ball
Olivia Plays Soccer
Olivia Packs Up
Olivia Is Invited To Dinner
Hopefully they will release more episodes on DVD soon! We can't get enough of Olivia :)

Olivia on screen!Sep 05, 2009
By Augustus Barringer
This series is so cute! The whole neighborhood came over (practically) when word got out that I got the DVD for my sons. We love Olivia's expressions and ear movements, and she's a great cartoon role model. This is a very clever, funny selection of episodes, highly recommend.

My Daughter LOVES it, and you can skip the commercialsMay 27, 2010
By B. Kilpatrick
My 2 and a half year old loves this DVD. She has had the original Olivia book, and we've read it to her since she was very young, so perhaps that's part of the reason she's so into this movie. If she has a choice, this is the DVD she picks to watch.
There are "commercials" for other Nick shows at the beginning of the DVD. You can't go straight to the menu; however, if you press the Next Chapter button 5 or 6 times, it will very quickly skip right through all of them.

Olivia Rocks with my 6 year old!Oct 28, 2009
By Daniel Agosto
My 6 year old daughter started watching the T.V. show and wanted to got to the library to read the books. After reading them for about 15 times; I purchased Olivia helps with Christmas, Olivia saves the Circus, Olivia forms a Band, Dream Big starring Olivia, Olivia Opposites and finally Olivia Counts (phew!) that's a mouth full. I would definitely recommend these books and more especially if your child loves to read oh and loves Olivia(May I remind you that she is a pig).

We like the later 2 betterNov 24, 2010
By D. B.
We first met Olivia through the Christmas DVD. We're super picky about what our kids watch and we loved the Christmas one so much that we went out and bought the Ballet one and this orignal one as well. I love the ballet dvd, but I cringed enough through the first few episodes of this dvd that we never finished it and I will be finding a new home for it. Like I said, we're super picky. This dvd is not as crisp in the story lines as the other two, not as original and clever. It relies a little too much on using contention, competition with friends, and sibling rivalry as humor. Since my kids are preschoolers and like to imitate behaviors instead of learn from them, I'd rather not have them watch this particular dvd. Having said that though, the others are wonderful and clever and I love them for the same reasons that I dislike this one. There is minimal contention, competition, and sibling rivalry in the others. The siblings are very sweet and positive to each other and we've all enjoyed the clever imagination and subtle humor of Olivia!
