What is it about Barney?

On a lazy Saturday afternoon, when normal people should be sitting in front of the TV (or reading a good book, what ever suits you)... Omair and I were battling a crowd of parents to get tickets for the Barney Musical Bonanza.

Since Iman is a big Barney fan, we couldn't let this "once in a lifetime" opportunity pass by. So there we were, in line for the show. There were so many parents and kids. I really didn't think that Barney had such a hold on our little UAE market as well. But as it turns out, not only did people know the purple dinosaur, they were willing to push and shove for him too!

Luckily we managed to get tickets, we made it inside, AND we managed to see the show! All the horrible lines and waiting aside, it was so cool to see Iman's face when she saw Barney.

What is it about him that has them so mesmerized?

Sounds like fun. That's the kind of idea I need to come up with: a purple dinosaur...

How about an orange piranha...

D, I think that you have the right color... but a piranha??? I think the basic neccesity is arms and legs. How's that thing going to jump?

Hello! Long time reader 1st time comment poster :) My little boy is 19 months old now and he adores Barney - he has memorised the DVDs we have and knows exactly when a song is coming - come to think of it i think its the songs that the kids love.
Love the blog Hina - my wife and I are addicted!

Who wouldn’t want the most exiting thing in their life to be a singing dancing purple dinosaur.
