Growing up, I missed out on the Power Rangers phenomenon.  I am more than making up for that now.  With three little guys the Power Rangers are a main stay in our home.  It all started with my middle son, then age two.  His older brother happened to have a Power Ranger and the characters struck a cord with him.  He is very visually orientated and the colors associated with specific animals appealed to him.  Plus there is the added bonus of “elements” and of course, kung fu.  It is not unusual to hear him chatting about the elements of power- Earth, wind, fire…..

My boys first watched these original episodes the Mighty Morphin Rangers and have watched many of the new ones since then.  These shows are classic Power Rangers.  They are campy and cheesy, and my boys love them.  And so does my husband:)  In fact, it seems to me the male gender is naturally drawn to this teenage team squad.

I love having so many of these original episodes in DVD form for long family car trips.  I anticipate hearing, “Power Rangers Power Up!” quite frequently from the backseat:)

 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Season 1, Vol.1 is available for pre-order via Amazon for $15.99
