Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this single is from Pixie Hollow Games, a Disney Channel special that features some healthy competition among Tinker Bell and her friends. This theme song, sung by Shake It Up! star Zendaya, encourages "digging deep" to find the winner within and is fine for kids.

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.

Families can talk 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?

It's Alright

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

Alright Seriously? Horrible Cheesy Song.

It might be good for little kids, but for older kids like me, ug, this song sucks. It has a good message and all, and the beat is catchy. But the LYRICS?!?! WHO WRONG THAT SONG!?! really, just some lyrics are horrible..
