    Corny to me, but the one-year-old? She’s IN LOVE!, December 2, 2009

    Yes, I know. I’m a big tv & book snob. We home school and eschew many things in pop culture. So if you try to tell me that this show is not good enough you are preaching to the chior. It’s corny. And silly. And sickeningly sweet. And unrealistic. And I could go on, but think about it. People talk baby talk to little ones all the time and that’s corny, silly, sickeningly sweet and unrealistic. We do it because we think they are cute & also because they respond to simple, animated, happy interaction. The producers of this show understand that. This is the only show my one-year-old loves. She has been hooked since about 9 months. As much as I hate to admit it, it grew on me and my husband. Our 13-yr.old rolls his eyes & bangs his head against the wall when it comes on, but even he can’t deny how adorable it is to see the huge grin on her face & the little diapered bob & sway this show always elicits.

    After a while I noticed that the primaries in the show are extremely talented. There are hints of classical training in music & dance and copious talent. I also realized that they consistently integrate musical terminology and concepts in each show. As I understand it, the song writers for the show have backgrounds in award-winning commercial songs which explains why each number is catchy & memorable. If you really listen, you’ll hear a difference between the music on this show & a lot of music content offered elsewhere. Over Thanksgiving my SIL played God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen on the grand piano in our parent’s living room. Guess who got up & danced AND got the beat right? My one-year-old Fresh Beats fan. Everyone was delighted! No, this show is probably not good enough, but you know what? I watched the Bugaloos, Land of the Lost and Gigglesnort Hotel when I was little & I turned out just fine.

    I have to admit I was not a fan at first. But then my 4 year old started singing and dancing along and I’m hooked. And so is my 1 year old. As soon as the opening song comes on my 1 year old drops what she is doing and runs (yes runs) over to the TV. She bounces her little butt and laughs. For those who are putting this show down…as a lot of others have said…this is for kids not you. And I may not be a trained and professional musician or dancer but I think they are very talented (Kiki, the one in pink is trained in Opera by the way and has been playing violin since she was 3 for all you snobby people who say they have no talent). It is wholesome, teaches working together, and gets kids into music and dancing. In my opinion, one of the better shows out there. I highly recommend!

    Really people? The show is made for kids not for adults. Do they care about whether or not the actors are changing their clothes? Are they concerned about production value or the acting quality? And frankly, I find it more entertaining than Yo Gabba Gabba which I find completely creepy. My son LOVES the music. It gets him moving and that’s really all I care about. This show is really the only one he reacts to when it’s on. I hope they keep creating new episodes! :-)
