Wonderful Show for Infants and Toddlers

I think this is a refreshing and fun show that teaches many basic concepts that kids need to know for their language development; such as shapes, letters, colors, and animals. It also speaks about manners, going to the doctor, making friends, and sings learning songs. I like it because my infant absolutely loves to watch, dance, and participate with the show. I do wish it would specifically speak about God, rather than only speak of the morals in the bible. I understand that she may be trying to reach people that may not want to hear the word of God, but even Veggietales includes the name of Jesus. I think she could have included some word somehow. I don't know. Otherwise I really enjoy the show and so does my son!!!

Great message and music for kids of any age

These programs holds my one year old's attention for the full episodes. He will watch the first few minutes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse but then loses interest. He is fully captivated by the songs and talking.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (4 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

While the show is based on a wholesome educational curriculum, Gina D and her friends can be quite silly and off the wall. Despite all of its action and the dazzle of its colorful special effects, the series lacks that special something that would make it stand out among other preschool programs. The characters in particular aren't very likable (the baker lady is actually a gruff man in an old-fashioned homemaker outfit), and the puppets are poorly done.

Some have said that Gina D is likely to take the place of Mr. Rogers. But there's really no comparison. Gina D's Kids Club may keep your child's interest, but its overly sappy content and zany characters may have you changing the channel. The recipe for success is there, but the ingredients -- the acting, the sets, the puppet design -- could be a lot better.
