Kid friendly and educational

I watched it growing up. I show it to kids I babysit and they love it! They dance and sing along with them. It’s cute. There is nothing bad in it at all!! They just help solve problems, by using There imagination, and with kid friendly comedy like how Dave always misses the high five at the end and makes a face. There’s more but i highly recommend!

Is It Any Good?

It's true that the show's basic premise harkens back to The Wiggles' heyday, but parents may find the Movers more enjoyable than their Aussie counterparts. For one, their musical influences for their stories structured around music video-like performances include everything from U2 to REM. There are no oversized stuffed animals of any kind, though a small Warehouse Mouse (voiced by Kevin Carlson) will fill kids' needs for a cuddly character. The problem-solving process in Imagination Movers encourages kids to brainstorm with the guys, who are always quick to remind viewers that there are "no bad ideas when you're brainstorming." Even the show's quirky props are thoughtful and serve specific purposes, like Scott's "wobble goggles," which allow him to view a situation from a different perspective to better understand it.

Of course, none of this will impress kids as much as the Movers' addictive sense of humor and quest for fun. The guys are clearly at home being their zany selves for their kid viewers, and even parents will find it impossible to not enjoy their high-energy, expressive performances. And there's no denying their well-deserved popularity among young music fans, who already appreciate their toe-tapping tunes and kid-pleasing lyrics.
