User Reviews

Although the creator might've been high, they were still smart...
19 March 2006 | by fuji-mujiSee all my reviews

Buddy-Rey obviously has not taken any child development courses in their life, otherwise they would know that this show is aimed towards infants to pre-school children, and you can't teach too much too early. All the colors and sounds are actually fundamental for a child's psyche...it stimulates certain parts of the brain that must be developed first...the areas that are reserved for reading, spelling, and counting haven't necessarily been activated yet, nor should they be. Buddy-Rey seems to be asking children to walk before they can crawl. When I first watched this...while in my senior year of college mind you, I was of course freaked out. But that is because my brain was much more developed than an infant....our brains can already process information to let us know what we are looking at, and make meaning of it. Yes, there isn't any sophisticated meaning behind this show, but it isn't teaching Shakespeare. Try to think like a baby, and you'll soon realize that it is actually an interesting show. If there are parents out there looking for a show for their newborns, try this one out. To us it may be disturbing and seem like a waste of time, but your children will prove it otherwise. Don't rush your kids too quickly into learning arithmetic and reading epic literature or it will in fact stunt their growth on more important levels if taught too early. If parents are worried about their impressionable children being shown "multi-colored phallic symbols", please remember that they have no clue whatsoever what a phallic symbol is, and will not be able to take this show to an inappropriate level. It is an innocent show filled with a vibrancy that our lives nowadays seems to lack.
