Just disturbing. The murder crosses the line. Come on Barney!
Kid, 11 years old August 30, 2010


Little fact:Ring around the Rosie is about the black death plague.
That counts as violence.

What's the story?

Ask a room full of young children if they love Barney, and you'll hear a choral \"yes\", if not a resounding cheer. This recording gets kids singing, clapping, and jumping without any prompting.

Is it any good?

RUN-JUMP-SKIP & SING is a combination of traditional and original songs performed by the beloved television characters Barney, Baby Bop, BJ, and the kids' chorus. One 5-year-old fan sang along, performed the appropriate movements to "Ring Around a Rosie" and "Skip to My Lou" (in the "Run & Jump Medley"), and enjoyed recognizing Baby Bop's voice.

The songs are short and catchy, and will maintain the participation and attention of most toddlers. Although the dinosaur's voice may get on your nerves after a few songs, your kid isn't likely to tire of it.
