Eight and Unders Will Be Enchanted
9 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

My children, and now grandchildren, enjoyed watching this video. The 11-year-old now rolls her eyes, although she loved it "way back when." The two four-year-old granddaughters are thrilled to watch.

Adults will notice things like dual roles, chroma key compositing, and fishing lines helping Contrary Mary's garden "grow." But the kids don't care.

The performers don't make fun of the material or mug. They play at a good sincerity level for the grade-school-or-younger audience. The singing and musical accompaniments are competent. Costuming is in bright colors and suitable for the subject.

One of the best things about these programs is the lack of talking down to the kids the way some grown-ups can do. They appear to be enjoying being silly, for kids' sake. And that's fine.

You can probably buy this for less than five dollars online, and it should make your kids happy many times over.
