The Jumparounds?

For those mothers that allow their toddlers to watch Noggin. There are no commercials on the channels but they have little shorts between programs and they have a little musical group called the Jumparounds. It is made up of four teenagers, and while the music is positive and upbeat it reminds me of High School High, or Camp Rock. I understand that Noggin is part of Nick, but it is annoying to see something that is obviously for older children being played on a station for toddlers. Does this bother anyone else, or am I just being uptight?

  • that song gets on my nerves- it doesnt have anything to do with me thinking its not positive or anything for my kids but more for the fact that they play it a million and one times a day- do they really have to have that song in between every last show? omg!!! but if it wasnt on so much i would probably think it was cuter- especially since my kids love it so much

  • I don't like the whole High School Musical, Hannah Montana obsession with 4 and 5 year olds. I think it's weird, and inappropriate.

    The Jumparounds don't bug me too much, because all they do is sing and dance. If they had more of a show going on with it, then I think it'd bother me.

  • Well I guess there is actually going to be a show. I was on parents connect. They plan on airing it on Nick Jr for sure. It is supposed to be about kids at a music school that help out each other about real life problems and teach kids about music appreciation. I probably will just not let DD watch it when it is on. I think there are other shows on that station that are more age appropriate and teach music appreciation a lot better than some deranged cheerleaders. Besides, what is up with the white kid rapping (badly!). lol
