Too creepy for my taste.

I watch kid's shows a lot, I am Elementary School teacher and babysitter. This is too weird and the songs were horrible. At least, this is no longer on Sprout.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (2 ):

There's a lot for parents to smile about in this block, since it combines quality preschool entertainment and feel-good shorts with strong positive messages for kids. There's also plenty of art appreciation by way of original music from the puppets and animated stories inspired by viewers' own artwork -- which hopefully will encourage kids to pick up the crayons and design their own masterpieces for the show.

Parents also don't have to worry that the show's three-hour timeslot means their kids will feel compelled to watch for the duration. With so many transitions between puppet scenes and the condensed versions of the animated series, there are lots of handy stopping points for easing your kids away from the television. In fact, the show's only sticking point is the inescapable promotion of the Sprout Web site, which facilitates kids' submissions of artwork and videos. But your preschooler isn't likely to make the connection -- at least not right away.

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.
