What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Puppy Party is a 70-minute advertisement for puppies, particularly pure-bred puppies. They frolic, romp, wrestle, chew, and leap about, being simply adorable, as viewers get simple facts about their breeds and histories. Though it's unlikely to keep anyone's attention for the full 70 minutes, it's a fun and educational video to put in the background on a rainy day or for introducing kids to the wonderment and whimsy of puppies.

What's the story?

Celebrate the fun of puppies through a documentary-style, kid-friendly look at a slew of breeds at peak cuteness. Whether an Australian shepherd, cocker spaniel, Saint Bernard, or Yorkshire terrier, all puppies have a few things in common: their desire to leap, chew, wrestle, and tumble in various settings. The camera delivers the cute, and voiceover narration imparts trivia on breeds, histories, and behavior.

Is it any good?

PUPPY PARTY's 70-minute cute-fest of puppies being puppies delights and mesmerizes. It may not hold attention spans for the full viewing time, but it does offer a cuddly crash course at a kid-friendly pace on a variety of popular breeds with interesting facts about each along the way. Bloodhounds have a nose for fun, and Havanese were once circus dogs. Kids will delight at the range and variety of breeds presented here, from the tiny Chihuahua to the enormous Great Dane, and even if the dogs don't retain much about their origin stories, this is still a purely wholesome hour of fun. If kids are of pet-acquiring age, it also could be a good way to discuss adopting breeds versus shelter dogs and the importance of pet care.
