A classic, 25 November 2005
Author: cat_starcatcher from UK

As a small girl, not many things can get you to do aerobics. This can. It might be a little dated - all right, a lot dated - but it really works. The problems with it are the cheesy music, the over-enthusiastic leader, the hideously bright-coloured leg warmers and the bizarre animated Barbie, but these are the things that really work to make it a lot of fun for little girls. Doubtless there are countless teenagers and twenty-somethings in the world today who learnt the basics of aerobics from this video, and it still appeals. The issues of crass commercialism and female stereotyping may apply, but when you're a seven-year-old girl, those things really don't matter. All this video demonstrates is how to do the bunny-hop and get a bit of exercise, and that's why I would heartily recommend it to any parent with young daughters who would prefer the TV to encourage rather than discourage movement.
