This DVD has two half-hour episodes, in which Christian singer/performer Mary Rice Hopkins and her loveable puppets Gringo and Ohno teach children positive values through entertainment and song. Episode one, “What’s in Your Hand?” explores the talents each person can use to glorify God. The audience is encouraged to use God and the Bible as their compass and to keep practicing their talents. Children are also told that every person can use their gifts to be small yet important. Episode two, “Choices and Values” teaches that what a person has in their heart is translated into words and actions. Children are asked to look inside their hearts and see that we are hurt when others make fun of us, and that can turn into us being sharp with others. If we are having family problems that can make us sad and possibly turn into a need to act out in order to get attention. The segment ends with a song saying that all things work together for good.

 

There was no objectionable content in either episode.

 

Because of its portrayal of positive values and its relevance to children, the Parents Television Council is proud to award Mary Rice Hopkins & Puppets With a Heart the PTC Seal of ApprovalTM. The PTC recommends this film for children age 3 and up.
