Editorial Reviews

Sally and her brother are whisked away to the Wee-Sing Park for her birthday, where they are entertained by a marching band, meet friends, open presents--and then get soaked by the rain. The garish, poorly-lit, amateurishly shot and edited Wee-Sing productions are a compromised choice for kids, but the songs, costumes, sets, and constant action are bound to be of some interest for little ones. --Tom Keogh

First, how I came to be watching this superb kid's video. I'm working on a lady's computer. In the same room is her TV, over to my left. Her 3-year-old granddaughter is watching this video, singing along, dancing, clapping, reciting the words spoken.
Not a bad kid's film, thought I. It was about the third time around that I found myself getting into it and humming along. The little actress in the red party dress is wonderful as Sally. Her dancing is lively and animated, yet so natural. Her expressions are perfect, not gee-whizish when gee-whiz isn't called for. Good singing voice. She's every bit as good as Shirley Temple was at the same age -- more natural and less theatrical. The other players do their jobs, too. The marching band is good and the kids' pantomimic playing of trombones, flutes and other instruments is a nice little touch.
The tight beat of the music, the sharpness of the drums, the one-voice sound of the choral singing all combine to give the music a captivating quality.
Amazon.com's review wasn't quite the back of a hand, but wasn't much above it. Garish? I thought the production was colorful. Poorly lit? It sparkled for me. Amateurishly shot and edited? With more than 30 syndicated TV shows under my producer/director belt I didn't see those defects. A comprimised choice for kids? After 15 years this video is still Amazon's number 12 best-seller for kid sing-alongs, has sold in the millions of copies. The lady whose computer I was working on said this he her 3rd copy of Wee Sing Together -- wore out the other two. The slip cover was positively tattered from use. Maybe Amazon needs kid reviewers for kid material.
Lacking that, old fogies like me will do. When I returned the next day with computer parts the lady thoughtfully tuned the TV to the History Channel. "Uh ... well ... Norma, do you have that Wee Sing video handy?"

My mother bought this as a VHS when I was a child in the 80s. I don't remember being so fond of it, but it kept my little brother reasonably entertained. However, since that time, plenty of cousins and family friends have borrowed our video and become obsessed. I can think of occasions when 3 different families have begged us to give them the video because their kids (ranging from ages 4-9) love it so much that they will watch it over and over and over again. (My mother wouldn't relinquish probably out of sentimentality reasons.) Now 20 years later, my daughter is 1.5 yrs old and we dug this video out to show her. She sat still for quite awhile watching it, something she has not done for any other video or program. I'm going to have to purchase the DVD for my own home.

I can't say that as an adult, it's a particularly enjoyable movie. The kids all overact every single line and exaggerate their facial expressions to the extreme. That said, the singing is fairly good, and the dancing and concept is cute. I don't know what the magic element is, but it seems to work to keep kids enthralled. Most of the songs are classics: Itsy bitsy spider, Bingo, Old MacDonald, If you're happy and you know it, Head Shoulders Knees & Toes, Rain Rain Go Away, etc.

If you have kids aged 4-8, I'd highly recommend it. Although I wouldn't recommend having your kids live in front of the tv screen, it's good for parents to have a secret weapon that will guarantee an hour of quiet while getting important chores done occasionally.

My mother purchased this video 20 years ago when her first grandchild was born and has passed it down to the remaining 18 grandchildren. They have all thoroughly enjoyed it and I was so excited to find it on DVD. My kids ages 18 months and 3 years love it as much as my niece did 20 years ago. They have learned so many classic nursery rhymes and love singing along while watching.

This is the most cheeseball, saccharine, out-to-recess video in my two-year-olds collection and absolutely her favorite. What song don't they sing? Eensy-weensy Spider, Old MacDonald, Loobie Loo, ABC Song, I'm a Little Tea Pot, Rain Rain Go Away, Bingo and More! You can do whatever you want for 59 glorious minutes because your child will be superglued to the tv! On the plus side, Melody the Mouse and Sally the Girl can sing and even dance. The boy however only can speak in a shouting voice. Another plus: no previews to fastforward through.(it really is a happy, dance-y show, as long as you don't have to watch it yourself.)

Watching this video through more mature eyes (well, fourteen-year-old eyes), I see how tacky it is. But all I can say is, when I was about two years old, I was obsessed with Sally and her birthday party. My mom reminds me of how the dancing, singing, oversized bunny entertained me, but what I remember most about WeeSing Together was how much I wished I was Sally, with her red dress, ballet shoes, and curly hair. Now my two-year-old little sister is just as infatuated with the video as I was at her age.In fact, I'm on Amazon now to order a new one, because our ten-year old tape has been played so many hundreds of times that it barely works anymore! My point is, the video is tacky. We can't even watch the other WeeSing videos without retching. But there's some certain magic to this one, and besides, as my mom says, if the kid's entertained, that's all that matters. And this definitely keeps the kid entertained!
