One of the best children's show's of all time!
29 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can remember sitting down and watching this show with my daughter everyday, as she would not let me do her hair until she saw how the girls on this show looked! Always funny and thought provoking (even for small children), this show stands out for me because it featured real people, rather than cartoon characters. This give my daughter a real sense of what the message of each show was, plus she learned that people of different ethnicities can live together and share as well.

She especially loved it when Abuelo was on the show, as her own grandfather died before she was born! I had hoped to be able to take her to one of live shows, but they never came to our city! Thanks Ron and Natalie, for making my child's first years that much more magical!!
