Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this full-length movie features the cast of Disney's TV series My Friends Tigger & Pooh, so your preschoolers may take an interest in the show (if they're not already fans) after enjoying this fun-filled tale. Kids will relate to the characters' troubles with friends, and the movie's positive messages about communication, compassion, and acceptance of others are so entwined in the plot that it's impossible even for youngsters to miss them. Mildly bad behavior (Rabbit is very bossy to his friends, for example) is resolved in a friendly manner, giving kids good examples of handling a variety of interpersonal conflicts. And if that's not enough reason to tune in, the seven catchy songs that underscore these messages should do the trick.
The friends must resolve typical kid issues like dealing with someone who's being bossy, having confidence in expressing your feelings, and being the peacemaker between friends who are at odds. Positive messages about accepting others' individuality and being a good friend are emphasized.
No outright marketing, but if your kids aren't already familiar with the series My Friends Tigger & Pooh, they may want to tune in after watching this movie.
