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.

Dull, repetitive animated songs for preschoolers.

There's simply nothing to recommend about this by-the-numbers, poorly animated, repetitive, and unoriginal effort. The dull, canned music is just the right accompaniment for the abysmal animation, the monotonous dance moves (10 seconds of motion, repeat and repeat again for up to five minutes). When such inventive children's music is available on CD, online, and elsewhere, opportunities abound for family-friendly, interactive song and dance. Dance! is not one of them. What a way to separate the parent-consumer from his or her hard-earned dollar!
