Fun stuff for kids!
10 July 2002 | by desmeiSee all my reviews

This is one of my 3 year old daughter's favourite programs, and I gladly encourage her to watch it. It's a cute little show that encourages activity (the "clock" stretch, dancing), storytelling, friendship, etc. while addressing common fears and concerns of small children. I like the Foley family, too! :o)

The actress who portrays Loonette is fantastic. I totally disagree with the poster that thought a woman playing a child is creepy. I'm sorry, but I find Mr. Rogers MUCH more creepy and don't appreciate his condescension towards children. There are also a few jokes that fly over my daughter's head but get me giggling.

Two thumbs up!
