If you remember watching Power Rangers as a kid, you are going to want to pick up this DVD set for your kids. I had no idea that my daughter was such a big fan of Power Rangers until the DVD set arrived. She promptly informed me that the red one was her favorite and she wants to become a Power Ranger when she grows up, lol. Since the DVD set came toward the end of DD's summer break, I told her that she could watch as many episodes as she likes because she will not be able to watch so much TV once school starts. I thought that there was no way she was going to watch all 10 hours of Power Rangers in a day. Well, she did not watch it all in a single day, but she did watched all 30 episodes in 3 days. She really enjoyed watching them fight the different monsters. A positive side effect of her watching so many Power Rangers is that after watching 30 episodes, she ended up spending several days drawing nothing but Power Rangers -- trying to perfect her art :). All in all, we thought this was a great set and we are happy to have on hand for the kids to watch whenever they want.
