Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Doggyland is a YouTube series produced and created by rapper Snoop Dogg. It features short videos (most under five minutes) with colorful animal characters singing and rapping popular nursery rhymes. Some videos address topics like bullying, diversity, and emotions.
Is It Any Good?
Preschoolers will be drawn to the vibrancy of the characters and the catchy rhymes, while adults can rest assured that none of Snoop's adult-oriented interests make their way into the videos. He does a good job narrating and singing as the "Bow Wizzle" character, and the channel features helpful messages about self-confidence and diversity. It's nice too that the video about sharing goes beyond the concept of sharing material items, and emphasizes the importance of being able to share your feelings with others. Doggyland's production value isn't exactly dazzling -- the characters and animation have a pretty generic look -- but little kids aren't likely to care.
