Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that kids will likely giggle and empathize with the sleep-defiant characters in this video. Parents plagued by potty talk may be slightly annoyed when Baby Bear announces he needs to "wee" in "I'm Not Sleepy." Sound effects accompany his visit to the bathroom. In "Little Princess' Bedtime," the main character hops out of a tree in her nightgown, which flops over her head. She's not wearing underwear, but there are no graphic images. Families who watch this video may want to use it as a teaching to tool to help their little ones eventually fall asleep, the way the cuddling characters do.

Is It Any Good?
Children will find the little animal friends amusing and endearing. The opening stories, "Dad! I Can't Sleep" and "Bedtime Story," are the most clever on the video. "Get Into Bed," "Go To Sleep," "Little Princess' Bedtime," and "Sleep Tight" are enjoyable, but all teach very similar lessons about the importance of rest. Seventh in the collection, "I'm Not Sleepy," will captivate few kids. It's an attempt to identify children's tactics to avoid bed, but the uninteresting story rambles to no real end.
In the last cartoon, "Goodnight Everyone," a small boy's wild imagination brings his toys, his toothpaste, and even the moon to life as he tells them goodnight. This charming cartoon will bring a smile (and hopefully a yawn) to their faces.
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.
