Cheers for ‘Growing Up with Hello Kitty’

GrowingUpWithHelloKitty1_2.jpgKIDS FIRST! youth film critics Camille Bajema (age 10) and Morgan Bertsch (age 7) give enthusiastic kudos to a couple of DVDs that are highly educational in their purpose. Growing Up with Hello Kitty - a two-DVD series released today - teaches kids about manners and about some very basic personal skills. The reason for Camille’s and Morgan’s enthusiasm is clear - it’s Hello Kitty, of course! The fact that it’s Hello Kitty whose experiences are the teaching moments is exactly what drew Natsumi Ueki and Robert Woodhead to the videos’ potential, and their company AnimEigo prepared the Japanese videos for the United States audience. Robert Woodhead visited on the KIDS FIRST! Coming Attractions radio show to talk about the project, and shares more in the blog posted just before this one with Camille Bajema’s and Morgan Bertsch’s reviews (below).

I’m reviewing the movie Growing Up with Hello Kitty 1. This movie is about two sisters, Mimi and Hello Kitty, growing up. Throughout these six seven-minute episodes, Mimi and Hello Kitty learn how to answer the telephone, eat their vegetables, clean up their messes, change their clothes, sleep by themselves and help their mother with chores around the house.CamilleBajema_sml.jpg

I like this movie because Mimi and Hello Kitty learn to have a positive attitude toward doing things that their parents want them to. They also learn how to be more independent. Parents will like these movies for their kids because it teaches basic skills and to respect and listen to their parents.

These episodes are short, so they hold a young child’s attention.

I recommend this movie for girls aged 4 through 7. I give this movie four out of five stars.

Today, we’re going to learn about the movie Growing Up with Hello Kitty. She has six episodes in each of two DVDs. You guys will love these episodes, just like I did.

It teaches you these: Talking on the phone; eating their vegetables; and also saying, “I’m sorry.” And cleaning your own mess. Oh, and [Hello Kitty] also has a twin sister – which they are nothing alike – and she has friends. MorganBertsch.jpg

I loved it! Five twinkling stars. [It’s for] boys and girls, or anyone who’s a fan of Hello Kitty. The ages are 2 to 7. It’s coming out on March 27.
