Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This charming video is geared for kids as young as age 1. However, we (along with the American Academy of Pediatrics) recommend that children under 2 avoid all screen media (TV, computers, DVDs, videos) and therefore are only recommending it for kids 2+.

Of course, many families will feel comfortable sharing this DVD with their babies. One 18-month-old demanded to watch it again immediately after his first viewing. He was engaged by it, pointing, asking questions (in baby talk) and putting down his sippy-cup long enough to scrutinize the funny images of doggies hiking, kitties cooking, and raccoons getting the newspaper. Even his 3-year-old sister enjoyed watching and identifying the words as objects came on screen.

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.
