Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Because we don't recommend movies and television to kids under 2, it's hard to imagine who this video would be a good fit for, but it is pretty cute. The wiggly-nosed bunnies, toy merry-go-rounds, even the embarrassed-looking Doberman wearing a Santa hat -- these images and the playful accompanying music may grab an infant's attention and hold on tight. Because there's no structure or storyline to pull it all together, though, kids older than the packaging's recommended age range of "1 to 36 months" aren't liable to sit still for it.

Although the soundtrack includes traditional melodies from around the world, the imagery is pure Christmas in America, which is fine, but there's something just plain wrong about a toy Santa and Mrs. Claus bopping mechanically to the Dreidel Song. Ah, well, you can at least feel good that a percentage of the video proceeds goes to worthwhile charities.

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.
