Five Kinds Of Fun! is the seventh episode from Season 6 of Barney & Friends


A school lesson about "Explorers" prompts the kids to want to explore their own world—but they're not sure they've got the right equipment for the job. Barney helps them to explore with their five senses. Barney has five boxes- each representing one of the five senses- and each with a fun game or surprise inside. The children enjoy squishy paint, a guessing game of different smells, a listening game of sounds in the neighborhood, and tasting treats from Barney's kitchen. But the very best way to explore the world is by using your imagination...and spending the day with Barney!

  • This is the only other Season 6 episode to feature the Season 5 Barney costume. This could possibly be because the Season 6 Barney costume wasn't completed yet when this and Itty Bitty Bugs were being filmed.
