Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this magic-of-Christmas tale where Pooh and friends save the day doesn't have universal appeal like the classic Pooh 'toons. It's like a long episode of the preschool-focused show My Friends Tigger & Pooh. You'll find lots of lessons in perseverance and helping others as well as plenty of hype around getting Christmas presents and asking Santa for presents; everyone gets what they asked for in the end. In one scene, some characters fall through ice into a hole, despair, and need to be rescued. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
Parents who grew up with the classic Winnie the Pooh shorts based on the A.A. Milne stories will be disappointed when they sit down with their preschoolers to watch this movie. The animation is computerized, there's no Christopher Robin (it's Darby now), the voices are a little off, and there's some gimmick involving Pooh and friends as private I's. But kids who enjoy the show it's based on, My Friends Tigger & Pooh, really won't mind. In fact, they'll love Darby and the sleuthing bit, and will love watching their pals save Christmas.
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.
