A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Educational Value

No true educational value per se, but it does teach kids to "dig down" into their heart to be successful.

Positive Messages

A bit of a mixed message about doing what it takes to "win" but also making your own dreams come true, even if that means you have to get your hands dirty once in a while.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Encourages girls to "go for the win" in the game of life.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Promotes Disney and Pixie Hollow Games.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

It's Alright

It's alright; not my favorite song. It's perfectly fine for kids.

Alright Seriously? Horrible Cheesy Song.

What's the story?

For Pixie Hollow Games, Disney Channel star Zendaya (Shake It Up!) sings DIG DOWN DEEPER, an inspiring, "go get 'em" anthem that cheers on Tinker Bell and her friends as they compete as the underdogs in the Pixie Hollow Games.

Is it any good?

"Dig Down Deeper" is a fun, upbeat song that's meant to encourage the underdog in all of us to "dig down deeper" and do the best we can. Of course it's fun to win, to "take a chance and make the leap" to find the winner inside. Just make sure your little pixies understand that winning isn't what's most important -- it's working hard and doing your best.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what it means to be a winner. Is winning important? How do you feel if you don't win at something? How do you feel when you do?

  • How does this song make you feel? Do you feel inspired? Do you think the song is telling us to win, win, win, no matter what? What other songs or movies make you feel inspired?
