Little House on the Prairie: The Complete Nine Season Boxed Set

I can hear Nellie Oleson saying, “I'll fix her. You'll see.” If you are a long-time fan who grew up with Little House on the Prairie likely you can hear that voice in your head, too.  If not, you ought to check out this iconic television series which was part of the growing up years of many North American women my age.

After a 1974 pilot movie, the series ran from 1974 through 1982, eventually filming 203 episodes that many of us watched when they aired and when they played in reruns year after year after year.

Derived from the books written by Laura Ingalls Wilder, the television program starred Michael Landon, Melissa Gilbert and Karen Grassle and was set in the farmlands of Minnesota in the 1870s and 1880s.

I was surprised, though I probably should NOT have been, to see that there is an incredible boxed set called Little House on the Prairie: The Complete Nine-Season Boxed Set available. Unfortunately, it has not been remastered and it is not available on blu-ray disc. However, those disappointments aside, it sounds like a phenomenal set for fans of the series.

PLEASE NOTE: 

Today, August 13, 2013, Amazon has this set as their Gold Box Deal of the Day at 42 percent off. 

 Here's a quick video peek into the series and the set:



Within the covered wagon themed packaging, you will find the complete television series and the pilot movie on an unbelievable 55 discs.  Plus you receive hours of special features, including cast interviews, a documentary about Laura Ingalls Wilder’s legacy, a tour of the historic site and more.

Amazon customer reviews are generally positive although some are disappointed that some of the shows were edited with scenes cut. If you are looking for a perfect, unedited set, this will not please you. However, if you are looking for an well-packaged, comprehensive set, it sounds like this is for you. I know it would make an absolutely stunning and special gift for a long-time fan of Little House on the Prairie. As a matter of fact, I would not mind finding it under my Christmas tree!
