Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6):
Kids say (2):

Although TV geared toward toddlers and young preschoolers can have its drawbacks (and its opponents), this series chalks up a win with its unique format. Harry the Bunny strings together multiple three-minute stories in each 30-minute episode. This does two things parents are sure to love: It makes it easy to keep screen time to a minimum (provided that parents are monitoring closely enough to turn it off when it's time), and it trims excess content in favor of what's essential to the story's theme, allowing kids to focus on that theme from beginning to end without distraction.

The flip side for parents is that there's not much to dress up the fairly monotonous progression of the monologue stories, which makes it a tad mind-numbing for the adult crowd. Happily, though, there's a lot of value to what Harry has to say, and, even though a lot of it likely repeats what they hear from you, there's a good chance that this friendly bunny's kid-friendly presentation will strike a new chord with your tots. What's more, because his adventures stay close to home, they're easily replicated by parents and kids in their own environments.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
