Don't some of the kids on Barney seem a little too old to be realistically playing like that? I mean, some of these kids are obviously 10-12. I understand they are doing it as a job, but the kids watching the show don't.

  • I agree. I have always thought that one girl ( I have no idea what her name is.. she has brown hair) was too old to be doing the things she does. She just looks out of place to me.

  • It's based in a school.

  • 13 y/o goes from playing hot wheels, to hanging out woth his 16 y/o friend. He would have no problem playing like that, then, turn around and hang with 21 y/o's and actually fit in. So, I think it depends on the kid. If they are only playing like that, then,'s wrong. But, if they are also mature and age appropriate as well, then, who cares if they play like little kids also.

  • Alot of kids still "play" at that age... I know a 12yr old who still loves playing shooter games with his friends (like fake guns-- boom your dead! No man I hit you! Dont cheat!) lol....
    Im 25 & still love swinging & teeter toting!
    I think all ages of kids love planting gardens, and acting out stuff...

  • Yeah, they're a little old, and the heavy pancake makeup on them looks weird, but my 2-year-old loves the show, so whatever works for the audience is OK with me.

  • My son plays hot wheels. I am talking like the dancing, alphabet book games. Like today they had two kids that were at least 10 guessing animals that started with a certain letter. And playing zoo.
