Hello Kitty's Paradise Volume 3

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Hello Kitty's Paradise: Share & Care is the third volume of DVDs released for Hello Kitty's Paradise. The back of the box claims there are eight complete episodes included. However, the box doesn't explicitly state that the episodes are roughly 10 to 11 minutes in length; two "episodes" actually make up one whole episode of Hello Kitty's Paradise.

In between the stories, and sometimes at the beginning or at the end of the show, there is a "Fun and Games" section using claymation. On this disc, only two types of games are included: "Animals! Animals!" and "Kitty's Caterpillar Quiz." Personally, I didn't care much for the "Fun and Games" pieces, and I didn't think they were very well-produced. Also, there are times with the writing for the games that I felt the writer was talking down to the children in the audience. While there may be young children in the intended audience, I felt the writer expected the kids to not have much understanding of what was expected from the games.

The episodes included on this disc either encourage children to use their imaginations or work to teach kids important lessons about life. On this disc, life lessons include minding manners, caring and sharing. As a parent, I appreciated that the English dub versions of the stories included on this DVD provided positive messages for their intended audience. I also appreciate that the English dubs of the actual stories were written in a way that the episodes didn't talk down to the audience.

My four-year-old daughter enjoyed watching this DVD, and really enjoyed the music that's included. She also enjoyed trying to guess the animals in "Animals! Animals!" and "Kitty's Caterpillar Quiz." She also seemed to enjoy the cute animation, the bright colors, and the stories.

Admittedly, this is a "low frills" DVD release. The main menu has options for Scene Selection and DVD Credits. The DVD Credits is a screen which shows who worked on this Hello Kitty DVD release.

The Hello Kitty's Paradise DVD releases contain anime that's very friendly to young children. However, girls will probably be more interested in these DVDs than boys, due to the "cuteness" of Hello Kitty. If you have a young child at home and are looking for kid-friendly anime, then I would recommend the Hello Kitty's Paradise DVDs.

In order to write this review, I checked out a copy of this DVD through the King County Library System.
