A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Rhyme Time Town Singalongs is a charming collection of songs from Rhyme Time Town and is appropriate for all ages, though it's most relevant to little kids. Each episode contains three songs sung by the characters from the Rhyme Time Town show. Some songs are simple and familiar nursery rhymes, while others are brand new and have mini scenes to set up the music. They're re-imagined and modernized (think: a female Old MacDonald), and many represent global cultures.
What's the story?
RHYME TIME TOWN SINGALONGS focuses on the re-imagined nursery rhymes from the full Rhyme Time Town series. Each episode features Humpty Dumpty, Daisy the puppy, Cole the kitten, and their pals singing three songs. Some songs have a simple music video to go along with the song, while others are part of a mini-story. The songs introduce some of the lessons that the full series explores more in depth, like making mistakes and learning from them, or looking at a problem from a new perspective.
Is it any good?
Like the Rhyme Time Town series, Singalongs features adorable characters and charming storybook-like art. The characters bring the songs to life and make each song interesting to watch. The clever re-imagining of nursery rhymes invites parents to experience songs they've heard one million times before from a different point of view. Unlike a lot of recordings of nursery rhymes out in the world, the vocal performances are sweet and natural, and the songs are not annoying to listen to. Some of the songs are re-mixes from parts of Rhyme Time Town episodes, but some are new for this series.
Kids will love spending time with these great characters and hearing fun songs. If kids (or their grown-ups) are expecting wall-to-wall music (a la CoComelon or Little Baby Bum), they may get a tad frustrated with the dialogue that is mixed in between the songs. The scenes themselves are fun and have positive messages, but it may be different than what you'd expect from a show called Singalongs.
