Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Santa Paws 2 is the sequel to The Search for Santa Paws and the latest installment in the popular direct-to-DVD Buddies franchise. There's nothing inappropriate, but there is a sad subplot about a widower and his two motherless kids who are having a hard time dealing with Christmas. The Santa pups and young characters learn the real meaning of Christmas isn't stuff but a spirit of service and love.
Nothing overt -- a few slapsticky moments in the North Pole as the pups wreak a bit of havoc in Santa's workshop and the disturbing possibility of losing Christmas spirit forever. The Reynolds family is sad about the death of their mother/wife.
This movie features an overwhelming message about the true meaning of Christmas and the importance of combating holiday grumpiness and apathy with love and kindness.
The Disney Buddies franchise has spawned many movies, toys, and accessories for kids.
