The kids had trouble staying engaged. The subjects covered clearly need to be facilitated by an adult. Younger kids were confused and older ones weren't interested. Some of the songs were fun and they liked the talk show host concept.
The basic premise is great: teach kids and families about being healthy. The content is respectful and the songs are simple. There is a mock panel of experts that receives telephone calls from children on various topics and then the singing begins explaining the basis of the topic being discussed in that particular episode. It seems a little disjointed at times and the menu is cumbersome and not easy to navigate. The production quality is a bit amateurish, with voices not appearing to come from the panelists mouths and a sort of PowerPoint style presentation for parts. There is good information in here.
In a music-rich, animated environment, children learn strategies for healthy habits, building a strong body and handling stress. Lively Q&A and hit songs engage children in a world of wellness and language arts, learning in a fun radio show format.
