my daughter who is 4 told me she saw this on TV one day with her dad. So I bought her the dvd. This show turned out to be too much for her. She got all stressed out and anxious everytime someone was in trouble. it really freaked her out because she cared so much. We ended up stopping the dvd

This title has:

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (4 ):

Two- to 4-year-olds are sure to find the story, the rich and textured animation, and the singing captivating. The action moves along at a nice pace and the songs are sweet but not cloying -- bearable for parents who will be asked to play the DVD over and over again.

Wonder Pets is surely the first TV show for preschoolers that is performed entirely in operetta, where the music is recorded with a live orchestra and much of the dialogue is sung. Very sensitive children might be alarmed by the situation that the Wonder Pets find themselves in, but the episode is handled so lightly and optimistically that they might not even notice. It's sweet to see the mini-trio of marine fans who help the self-rescue along.
