Hop…Hop…Hop…Get ready to do the Bunny Dance! Playhouse Disney’s hit series Bunnytown will be available on DVD starting March 17th. I got a chance to preview Bunnytown: Hello Bunnies last week. The catchy tunes and colorful bunnies had me and my three-year old product tester hopping, dancing and singing along.   Silly skits teach subtle lessons about sharing and teamwork. Bunnytown: Hello Bunnies isn’t educational fare on the level of Signing Time on PBS or something similarly brainy.  But it’s sweet, funny and family-friendly. I view Bunnytown as the … Read entire article »
