My three year old twins and I love this movie

"My three year old twin daughters and I have watched this movie a dozen times since Christmas. I will let my mini movie critics give their review of this excellent, educational and actually amusing DVD. "It's so funny. It's so cute. The Hello Kitty song is my favorite song, especially when Kitty says "Mimmy, she's my sister!" because I have a twin sister too.""It's funny but I learned alot of new things. Like don't eat a giant plate of food or you will get a big tummy ache, don't talk to strangers because Mama says they might not be as nice as they act, be careful crossing the street, and be careful when you go underground with Moley." All important lessons, told well."I laugh when Kitty and Mimmy go shopping with Dad and see the book store, hardware store and flower shop. I laugh when Kitty says that Papa's favorite store is the Eyeglasses store, because Papa wears big glasses." It tickles me that my children find that joke hilarious."I love the games in between the shows. Connect the dots is fun and I like the claymania game." The games are not easy, but after the tenth viewing, my daughters get so proud that they can figure them out.How can I add to this review? I will just add that parents will appreciate the lessons, done in a non-preachy, non-patronizing fashion, which keeps even three year old children engaged. Finally, parents won't pass out from sugar shock (as Barney does for us) because the stories are clever, production values are high, and there are funny observations and truths sprinkled throughout the movie. The only downside is that I can't get that bouncy theme song out of my head!We plan to buy Volume 2 and 3 when released."
Must-have for all little (or big) girls!

"My little girl, who will be four in 2 months, adores Hello Kitty. While the Sanrio licensed products are a bit steep in price, the Hello Kitty Paradise DVDs and videos are an excellent value. 190 minutes of non-stop Hello Kitty will entertain even the antsiest of children. The stories teach good values, usually have a "moral of the story" ending, and aren't too over-the-top saccharin sweet. I love watching these with my little one.Even though there are plenty of Hello Kitty DVDs and videos, stick with the Hello Kitty Paradise items. These items are orginally in Japanese, dubbed in English (no sub-titles). The writing and voice acting is so much better in this series than the American/English version (the one from the 80's). The American/English H.K. collection bores not only myself, but my little girl as well. We have watched all the episodes in all the videos a million times over, and I find it rather ridiculous that someone would find some of the episodes "scary" or "terrifying". I'd hate to see what the ghosts and goblins in Scooby Doo do to those kids...Overall, these Hello Kitty Paradise videos are an excellent gift for a child or an adult Hello Kitty collector. I HIGHLY recommend these Japanese treats for hours of fun, educational, and cute entertainment."
Too Scary Kitty

"I wish I had seen all of the reviews for this, before I purchased this video from Toys R' Us. This is the first video purchase I have been disappointed in buying. The other reviewer who noted the scary witch scene was right -- the witch sharpening the knife sequence was too scary!!! My daughter is still talking about how scary it was days later. While the other shorts on here were fine - the third one implied way too much violence for the age group that might normally purchase this -- I would not endorse this video for kids under six and/or kids who have not watched a lot of violence/scary scenes. The implied violence just seemed too inappropriate given the sweet, pleasant nature of the rest of the video."
Great themes and the kids enjoy it

"Our three toddlers watched a couple of the short videos right before dinner. So during dinner I found my 2-year old surprisingly civil and polite. After some brief inquires (to my 10 year old daughter) I found out that Kitty had learned some lessons on the tape. Outstanding! Every little contribution to parenting helps. Think Veggietales for toddlers and you've got Hello Kitty.Have multiple short videos is also pleasant because we prefer not to have extended TV viewing for our toddlers."
