Kidsongs is a series of home videos aimed at children aged 1 to 8. The videos are all live action and star a cast of kids who perform music videos of songs selected to entertain and motivate young viewers. Kidsongs get kids up and moving to a wide range of music -- from Old MacDonald Had a Farm to Rock Around the Clock. Each music video story has 10 to 15 songs joined together by a story line and theme; like Cars, Boats, Trains and Planes or Very Silly Songs.

Kidsongs are very high quality productions and have won many awards including eight Parent's Choice Awards, three "Best Sing Along Video" Awards by the National Parenting Publications Association, The Award for Outstanding Achievement in Children's Television and the ViRA Award for best Live Action Children's Video.

First generation (1985-1988)Edit

Second generation (1989-1991)Edit

There was also a compilation video called "A Day of Fun", comprising of 10 random songs from the first two generations. It was only available in VHS format and was discontinued in 1992.

Like the 1991 re-prints of all Kidsongs videos, this one also contains a promo for all 12 videos at the end.

Third generation (1992-1998)Edit

The Complete Kidsongs Video Collection (November 2001)Edit

In 2001, after the Kidsongs Television Show gradually stopped airing on PBS stations, most of the videos were re-released by Together Again Productions, now independent, each priced at $12.98. There was also a complete collection of all 23 videos, at a sale price of $150, and a complete audio collection in Audio CD format, priced at $19.98.
