My little girl is almost two at this time, and she loves singing. She is very interested in learning new words and concepts, too. This show is perfect for her. Its goal is to provide positive male role models on television, as well as to thrill kids with music and action entertainment. It is not as far-out as Captain Kangaroo or as fantasy-filled as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. It doesn't need to be. It is tailored to suit modern children, kids who need more realistic father figures than what we usually see presented on TV. The Movers don't interact with eight-foot-tall, make-believe dinosaurs, slapstick cats and dogs, or an idiot sponge-person. The puppets on the show are cute and limited to a small amount of screen time. Disney has a hit with this series that seeks to provide a lot of music, a lot of positivity, and a bit of education to boot. It's more grounded in reality than most programs found on children's television these days (for example, "Yo, Gabba Gabba!"), and features a violence-free warehouse in which the Movers can interact with other amusing or pleasant human characters, such as Mr. Knit Knots and Nina. The music featured on the show is strongly reminiscent of '80s and '90s pop rock. I like it, and my wife agrees that the Imagination Movers is just right for our little girl.
