Editorial Reviews

Twins Kitty and Mimmy soar in their magic hot-air balloon to rescue a failing bakery, heal a sick girl with some magic presents, help a professor chase down his broken robot, and touch down in a land of pretty paper crafts. Chock-full of lessons about helping others, doing chores at home, and learning safety and etiquette, this 8-episode collection also contradicts itself by allowing the kittens to talk to strangers without their parents and even enter the home of an adult male who asks them for help. (He ends up being the father of the sick girl, but that could add to a youngster's confusion.) Sanrio's cash cow is all giggles and cutesy voices, making her a little too saccharine for most boys. And, while the cultural icon may be the cat's meow to such disparate celebrities as Sarah Jessica Parker and Christian Aguilera, the Hello Kitty's Paradise series is strictly for her youngest fans. (Ages 4 to 10) --Kimberly Heinrichs

Product Description

Episodes in Volume 2: Episode 1 "The Magic Bags" Kitty and Mimmy go to Magic Land and find some magical bags which have the power to create happiness. "The Dust Monster" Mama encourages Kitty and Mimmy to do their spring cleaning by giving them a book on the dust monster. Episode 3 "Put on a Happy Place" Kitty and Mimmy become interior decorators for a day and help a baker turn his dismal bakery into a happy place. "The Train to Grandma's House" At the train station, Kitty and Mimmy learn lessons about safety and how to behave in public. Episode 5 "Paper Play" Kitty and Mimmy go on an imaginary visit to Paper Land - a special place decorated with everything they ever made out of paper. "Sizing Things Up" Kitty and Mimmy learn the difference between a little and a lot. Episode 7 "The Broken Robot" Kitty and Mimmy imagine what it would be like if they had a robot to do all of their chores for them. "What's in Store?" Kitty and Mimmy use objects from around their house to "build" their favorite stores. While playing this game, Kitty learns the importance of sharing and asking permission to borrow things.

4.0 out of 5 stars good for preschoolers March 16, 2004
By A Customer
This is the second DVD of four that are available in the Hello Kitty "paradise" series. It features cartoons about Hello Kitty and Mimi in imaginative play, and episodes on things such as manners, sharing and taking turns. This DVD contains: The Magic Bags, The Dust Monster, Put on a Happy Place, The Train to Grandma's House, Paper Play, Sizing Things Up, and The Broken Robot. In between each episode were little games such as guess the animal and shapes that bounced around... which I found was rather uninteresting, and as an adult, I wanted to fast forward past them. I also felt the Magic Bag episode left me hanging without a proper conclusion and the Dust Monster almost seemed like it was trying to scare kids into cleaning (although it works out fine in the end). But, I do feel it has good lessons for preschoolers, so I'm giving it 4 stars. But, if you are an adult Hello Kitty fan like I am or want something for a child slightly older than preschool age, I suggest the Hello Kitty Furry Tale Theater series instead (ie, Hello Kitty Becomes a Princess, Hello Kitty Goes to the Movies, etc).

5.0 out of 5 stars The return to Hello Kitty Paradise January 28, 2013
By CZerega
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I started getting my daughter in Hello Kitty via Youtube to see if she would like it since we don't cable/ Dish/ Netflix to watch things at the moment. This DVD is filled with mini stories of Kitty and Mimi (her twin sister) White experiences and in between episodes is little games such as what animal is it as they reveal a corner with an additional hint, mixing colors, and what is the object.

This is a very cute movie with great stories and life lessons sprinkled throughout and would highly recommend to anyone into the Sanrio universe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anime that's friendly to young children September 8, 2009
Hello Kitty's Paradise: Fun With Friends is the second 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 ten to eleven 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, and the games include such things as "Guess the Shape," "Animals! Animals!" and "Kitty's Caterpillar Quiz."

The episodes included on this disc are: "The Magic Bags," "The Dust Monster," "Put On a Happy Place," "The Train to Grandma's House," "Paper Play," "Sizing Things Up," "The Broken Robot," and "What's in Store" (which is mislabeled on the back of the box as "What's in the Store"). The episodes either encourage children to use their imaginations or work to teach kids important lessons about life. Lessons included on this disc are sharing, counting, safety, manners, and making new friends. As a parent, I appreciated that the English dub versions of the stories included on the 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.

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.
