Great Show

I didn't grow up watching the original show, but I've seen a few episodes online and it was awesome. Soleil Moon Frye doesn't disappoint in this show.

Feel good fun

Being around many kids daily of several different ages, this show is great to watch with them. The kids on the show talk milder than alot of real- life kids the same age. It puts a positive feel on many different subjects without being overly pushy on any of them.
