AKGVH FAV Vintage Valentine Video Roundup




Back when I had my pre-k throughout the 80’s, I recorded several Valentine cartoons to show my wee ones every year. Thankfully, I have kept those tapes and now I have been able to view them with my children and now with my wee grandbabes. 





Over the years, I have found viewing reels pertaining to certain subjects have enhanced their interest in the subject at hand. On youtube, I have been able to find some of our FAVS for your wee ones to enjoy. If you would like to purchase any of these videos, scroll down to the bottom of this post for the links!



My wee ones love to sing this song throughout the Valentine Holiday Season. Your babes will be playing this video singing along drivin' you nuts all days as well:








Disney aired a Valentine Special that I recorded as well in 1984. I have not been able to find that exact reel, but the following Disney Valentine compilation comes close to what I have:
