We received this as a gift. My children are 6, 4, and 2.5--and they all LOVE it! One of my children is high-functioning autistic (and sensory processing disorder) and he not only is able to follow along--he now SEEKS doing this yoga video! Many times when he's been overwhelmed/overstimulated he's asked to do this video. He'll even do moves/actions/words from the video (without watching it at the same time) now to help him calm down (and he's initiating this himself 80% of the time--which is amazing for him to be seeking ways to calm himself without being cued). It's a great tool for me, as a mom, for when I see him getting overwhelmed, I can cue him to do "star fish pose" or "happy baby" or to show me "downward facing dog--and let me hear you howl!"
It's a great tool in my bag of "tricks" to help ALL of my children. The end of the video has great calming poses that are great to add to bedtime routines--especially those days that are chaotic and the kids need more settling--this has been INCREDIBLY helpful!
I love that there is the option to do it all at one time--or that you can do it "chapter-by-chapter." The icons separating the chapters are cute and the kids readily identify them (and specify which chapters they want to do).
It's very engaging and easy for the kids to follow along! I love that it's ONE person to follow--there are no distractions, it's not over-stimulating, yet it still captures their attention! I highly recommend it!
