New Hi-5 news!

Yes, this is new Hi-5 news, as opposed to old Hi-5 news. Which would be, um, olds?

Anyway.

I’ve got a few things to share about the group’s latest retail accoutrements, which will be of interest if you happen to have a kid who’s a fan of the perky fivesome. (And if you have no idea what I’m talking about, go check them out. I’ll wait.)

First of all, in case you haven’t noticed, there’s tons of new Hi-5 merchandise available at the Ty’s Hi-5 store right now. The new new clothing is adorable, though I am partial to the blue cape, I think.

Next, you may have noticed that Ty’s currently has three different Hi-5 DVDs in stock. That’s great news if you and your children are just discovering Hi-5; but what if you already own all three DVDs? What if you appreciate the learning that Hi-5 offers your preschooler but you think that if you have to watch one of those DVDs even one more time that you may just have to blind yourself with the spout of the nearest sippy cup?

Don’t fret! Help is on the way:

Well Go USA has announced two volumes of Hi-5 for release on December 5. Both volumes are single discs, and run for 50 mins. The first volume, “Action Heroes,” includes these songs:

  • Action Heroes
  • T-E-A-M
  • Underwater Discovery

While the second volume, “Move Your Body,” includes these songs:

  • Five Senses
  • Move Your Body
  • North, South, East and West

Both sets will include:

  • New DVD Carrying Case
  • Never Before Seen Hi-5 Fun
  • Karaoke Special Features
  • Hi-5 Stickers

Suggested retail price is $19.99 each.

This news may come as a great relief to you, and just in time for the holidays, to boot. Heck, my kids sing the “North, South, East and West” song all the time, and they’re not even preschoolers. It’s possible they just do it to see my eyelid twitch. But that’s a different entry altogether.

  1. anyone who has kids need to check out this show!!!! it is great fun and is educational and keeps the kids dancing! the cast is great, even if two original members have left! i am sure the new guys will be great! this show is good for parents too, because the music is upbeat and enjoyable! i find myself singing the songs! watch this show!!!!!

  2. just wanted to comment on the new hi-5 dvds. the action hero one is great! but i was VERY disappointed w/ the move your body one. we have the 3 previous dvds from hi-5, so we were excited to have new material to see! well, the move your body has at least 5 of the same segments on it as are on the other dvds! i feel very duped! hi 5 has many great shows that they could have gotten footage from, for the loyal fans that purchase anything hi 5 this is a VERY BIG LET DOWN, hope they don’t do this in the future!

  3. OK, so I thought I was the only one who had even ever heard of High 5. Who knew?
    Is it really true that there’s a NEW cast? Dang it! That blows.

  4. Discovery has not ordered any more episodes of the American Hi-5 show in the immediate future. If you are growing weary of the same episodes being shown over and over and over and over again, please take part in our campaign to convince Discovery to order more shows, with new members Yasmeen and Sydney!! HI-5 has been nominated for an Emmy three years in a row, but without new episodes to be filmed, those Emmy noms are a thing of the past! If we all work together, we can get these guys back in the studio, filming new shows that our kids love so much…

    We (the fans) have set up a petition site, another myspace and a website for fans to visit to express their support for our cause to get new shows ordered. I am also going to the Louisville, KY show the end of this month and will be drumming up signatures for the petition, maybe I will see you there! We have also created Tshirts with our slogan “Keep American Hi-5 Alive” so you can spot us at the shows and give your support. If you attend a Hi-5 show in the next few weeks, look for us!
