Is It Any Good?

The recycled-organic DVD packaging suggests that this enjoyable series is appropriate for age 6 months and up. But parents should know that both Common Sense Media and the American Academy of Pediatrics advise against allowing children younger than 2 years old watch TV and other screen media. Studies have raised concerns that early exposure to TV could be detrimental to attention span and cognitive development.

That said, the DVD models positive, fun, and easily replicated interactions for caregivers and young children ages 2-4, and may prompt creative thinking about how to reinforce learning through all the senses.

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.
