The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

Derryberry's characters and storylines focus on "kindness, diversity, sharing, family and nature." Kids can submit drawings to be posted on the site.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

This is, at its heart, a promo site for Debi Derryberry's new CD and book and her live shows. There's a store with CDs, the book , T shirts, a free ringtone, a free downloadable song when you join the fan club, as well as a place to watch her live show filmed at a school.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this site promotes the cute banana character created by entertainer and Hollywood voice-over artist Debi Derryberry, most famously voice of Jimmy Neutron. The site won't win any educational accolades, but if your preschooler has seen one of Derryberry's live shows or is a fan of her award-winning CDs, or has read the Baby Banana book, they will likely enjoy checking out this site with you a time or two.

What's it about?

MYBABYBANANA is the promotional site for the new book and music character created by child entertainer and Hollywood voice over artist Debi Derryberry. With a relatively new Baby Banana book on the market and an upcoming CD to promote, this site is more about getting this character and its friends a presence on the Internet and to sell the products than it is to develop a strong, educationally appropriate site for preschoolers.

Is it any good?

This is a cute site with a cute character created by someone who obviously loves entertaining children. Especially if your child is already familiar with Derryberry's live shows, CDs, or books, it's worth one visit. Print the coloring pages, play the two games and watch a couple of videos. But this won't be a site that gets a lot of repeat visits from most kids unless it get more interactive and less promotional.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the differences your child experiences when reading a book in hand, going to a live show of an entertainer, or listening to a CD vs. doing all of these things via Web site or video on a Web site. Which experience is most fun for them?
