Is It Any Good?

Daniel Tiger is impossibly cute, and his parents are gentle and loving as they guide him through preparations for school and bed. He's a great role model for many youngsters. Indeed, kids likely will be drawn to finding out what Daniel Tiger does in his house and compare it to their own routines.


Though the song about getting ready stresses that there's an order to things (and rightly so: you generally eat breakfast before brushing your teeth), kids can do the tasks in any order they want. They can also get Daniel to school without completing all the tasks (like getting dressed). This could prove a bit misleading for some kids and may prompt discussion. Also, the routine doesn't cover everything a kid might do. For instance, Daniel Tiger doesn't have to go potty (or get a diaper change). The five-minute-timer function can be uniquely helpful for brushing teeth when it's set for two minutes, using the tooth-brushing song option.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
