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.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

Introduces some early vocabulary words and nursery rhymes, but it's not repetitive enough for most young kids to learn from it.

Positive Messages

There are positive themes throughout, such as it's okay to make a mistake, sometimes you have to look at things from a new perspective, etc.. But because they're presented in short skits and songs, it's unlikely young kids will be able to absorb the messages.

Positive Role Models

Characters model good behaviors. There's positive gender representations (like a female Old MacDonald) as well as songs and visuals that represent different global cultures.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

Part of the Rhyme Time Town series. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

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.

Rhyme Time Sing Along Songs are terrific!

I love the fusion of modern and classic songs.

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.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about which one of the songs is their favorite. Why is it your favorite (do you like the music, or the animals, or the silliness)?

  • Encourage your child to dance and sing along to the music. Lead by example and get in on the fun!
