"This is a GOOD thing!"
Verified purchase
The premise of this show is how people who are different assimilate into a world not made for them. Watching the Roloffs--a family of six, three of whom are dwarves and three of whom are of average size--will give you the answer: Very well, thank you.
This is the most realistic family show out there, and this family--despite having what some people may consider shortcomings (no pun intended)--are as genuine and typical as any family of six can be. I love watching them interact (sometimes politely, sometimes not so much so), deal with life's disappointments, revel in the good stuff, and just be themselves.
Everyone I've told about this show has become hooked, because it's so interesting to see how the Roloffs deal with what some of us average-height individuals take for granted, from shopping at the grocery store, to driving a car, to cleaning the house. But what is really amazing is how much they are just typical people. This is the greatest appeal of "Little People, Big World." Size doesn't matter. As Matt said after returning from a business trip to see that his deck was finished: "This is a GOOD thing!"

A Fun family to watch.
Verified purchase
This is a fun show to watch. There is also an education that goes along with this show, at least for me it is an education. There are two dwarf parents, Amy and Mat. They are parenting four kids. 15/16 year old twins. One tall boy & one Dwarf boy. A 12/13 year old girl normal height and a 9/10 year old boy normal height. It is a chore when parenting the twins. Especially when the taller twin starts to talk back and the dwarf twin analyzes everything the father does in trying to get the taller twin to do the work needed. Mat really needs be married to Amy. She is the reason, the master mind behind the parenting. Matt is usually there to get things done, but there are times Amy needs to finesse the work her husband does.

EXCELLENT REALITY SHOW! GREAT FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!! GOTTA GET THIS ONE!
Verified purchase
With three little ones in the house its hard to catch anything on tv that isn't a cartoon. My husband and I are hooked on this reality show which is still on TLC. Once you start watching it you want to see more. You can learn so much from the Roloff family. I have been waiting for them to come out with these DVD's by season. I'm excited to see they are putting out season one and hope that they continue release all of the seasons here on after. I plan on introducing this program to my children as they get older (my oldest is 6). You get a better understanding of what "little people" go through in our big world. It's really neat watching all of the Roloff children grow up. You won't regret it pre-order your DVD today!

NO closed captions, but otherwise quite good
Verified purchase
The lack of closed captions is unfortunate because there's so much value in this set. I agree with previous reviews regarding the cheap packaging, but my hope is that this was done in order to keep the price as low as possible to reach those who might not otherwise buy it.

"Living Little," the first episode, seems like it might be useful, if a little long for that, in an adolescent anti-bullying campaign, and I think it would be useful to make something similar for younger kids. I thought the parts where Matt was presenting at the school assembly were most excellent!!

Little People, Big World - Season One
Verified purchase
What a wonderful video! Makes you realize what "little people" have to go through just to perform what are normal everyday tasks for the average sized person. Such a delighful family. Many lessons are taught about family life and in raising children, regardless if they are dwarfs or normal sized. I would highly recommend it as a video that the entire family would want to enjoy together!
