Barney is a wholesome educational show for kids. Teaches more than just abc’s and 123’s. Never meet a kid who didn’t enjoy learning through song.

Fans of sports and Barney lovers no doubt will enjoy BARNEY: A SUPER DEE-DUPER DAY. There's a lot of talk about exercise, with some fun songs that encourage kids to get up and move. And parents no doubt will love the push Barney gives for simple, imaginative toys such as balls. The segment on accommodating kids with special needs during playtime is especially well done and gives kids actionable tips on how to include everyone in games.

Kids who aren't as into active games may not be as entertained with this Barney film. The songs aren't as engaging as songs from other movies, and it drags on a bit more than usual. But the stellar messages make it worth a shot, especially for die-hard Barney fans.
