Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Scenes of giggling, gurgling babies interacting with puppets on a brightly colored set may hold the attention of babies and toddlers. Dialog and peppy song lyrics are simple for even young children to understand, and each concept, from looking in the mirror to imitating sounds, is shown from multiple perspectives. Basic manners, like asking permission before tickling a friend, are also reinforced.

This DVD works great as a source of ideas for parents and caregivers, who can then turn off the TV and replicate the activities in real life. As nice as it is to watch a gentle scene of a baby feeling different textures, how much more valuable would it be to your baby to sit in your lap with a Pat the Bunny board book?

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.
