The care bears movie is fine for ages 2 and up. My children love it. I haven't seen anything scary in this movie. Maybe every child is different but my kids love it. They are always asking to see it. They run around singing the songs even when the movie is not on. I even watch it with them. I have been a care bears fan since I was younger.
It's definitely a good film. The music is not good but it's not really a musical cartoon anyway. There's some really scary parts with the evil book that turns the circus boy evil. When characters become evil and possessed by the evil book they get dark circles under their eyes like someone on drugs and it gets really intense and down right creepy. But the Care Bears and their cousins and a couple of kids save the day and they all become friends. And the evil book gets defeated and the circus boy turns out to be the old man narrating the story at the orphanage.

a good movie for preschoolers and kindergarteners but some iffy content
this movie has some iffy stuff in it like: some vilonce that is a little tooo scary for a young toddler. and lots of product placement for example if your child is young and loves care bears then after they waych this movie next time yougo to the store if they see care bear stuff they will bug you and bug you to buy it.
I had that film on VHS, but I'll rent the DVD version of it! The only thing that I'm concerned about is - well, just the Evil Spirit, but it's a joy to watch anyway! I'm a fan of Bedtime Bear and Proud Heart Cat!

not rated for age
We own this
The absolute only thing that is questionable for 2-5yr olds is the scary Evil Spirit. Your young children would appreciate you sitting with them if they are sensitive at all, but there is no hurting others, crude comments, sexual innuendos, etc. My 3,4,and 6yr olds all enjoy it. The songs are very catchy and cheerful, and present a sense of love and respect.
