Is It Any Good?

Barney on TV may be tough for parents to sit through, but this DVD makes the task a little easier, thanks to all the lively international dancing -- mostly by kids in traditional dress. Kids love the big purple guy and he's always passing on such nice lessons for kids to hear, so we make the effort to hang in there, even though and it's impossible to get that "I love you, you love me" song out of your head days later.

Mixed in with all the jigging and samba-ing there are still a number of ditties on ice cream, taking turns, playing outside, trying new things, and more. They really pack in the songs to the point where this is a bit long for kids to sit through. Better to take it a few countries at a time, getting up to samba whenever the mood strikes.

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.
