If you go online and look at some of the children’s DVDs that are available you will be presented with a wide choice of modern TV shows, but you will also see lots of classic shows from previous decades. This is not unusual because more and more adults are snapping up these DVDs for themselves.
It’s easy to see why. Modern technology means that a lot of the shows from the 60s, 70s and 80s that we used to enjoy watching as a kid are now available to buy or rent on DVD. So for many this is an excellent opportunity to relive some of our childhood when children’s television played such a major part in our lives, mainly due to the fact that it was our main source of entertainment at the time.
Most of us have fond memories of when we were growing up and I’m sure the vast majority of adults still have strong memories of their favourite programs they used to watch. So it’s perfectly normal for us to revel in a bit of nostalgia and buy some of these programs on DVD so we can watch them again.
Of course some of these programs might turn out to be somewhat of a disappointment when you now watch them from an adult’s perspective, particularly when you are now used to high quality programs that are professionally produced. However I would think the majority of people will love watching some of these old classics again and the fact that some of them have grainy pictures and dodgy sound just adds to the enjoyment and the authenticity because they are shown as they were originally broadcast.
It may seem odd buying DVDs of your favourite childhood programs but it’s not really because you will find a lot of these old favourites are selling in huge numbers. If you are still reluctant to buy them, you can of course use your kids as an excuse. Say you are buying them for your children to enjoy, and then you can sit down and watch it with them at the same time they do. Some of these classic shows are timeless and will be enjoyed by many generations to come, so they will probably enjoy them as much as you did. More and more adults are snapping up these DVDs because they are currently very cheap and best of all, they will hopefully bring those treasured childhood memories flooding back.
