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.

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.
