All of the Moore children have had an affinity for the purple dinosaur. I am totally fine with that. Barney is definitely one of the best children's characters out there. I'm not down with the new ones: Doodlebugs (gay agenda), Wiggles (no diversity - really, would it kill them to put ONE non-white person on the show?), Teletubbies (senseless), Thomas the Train (Give me a freakin' break! ..it's the worst show ever; I couldn't last 5 minutes watchin it!). I sill love Elmo and the Sesame Street gang, it's classic, they teach numbers & letters, they have diversity, and they have good entertainers. Barney is also good because they sing and dance, it's educational (ABCs, manners, the infamous clean up song!, etc), and the kids are diverse.
Last week we set out to buy Amaya her own Barney since she gets such a kick out of him. We were disappointed when we found that ToysRUs doesn't carry ANY Barney! I guess that means that we're officially "old school". I was panicked until we found one at KBtoys that sings and asks for hugs...awwww! (then when you give him a hug, he tells you that your a good hugger (build's self-esteem!)
Anyway, here's Amaya with the purple one:
