Well they are back again and really the more things change the more they stay the same. This time round the Kidz are helping their friend with a party and all sorts of shenanigans ensue as they dance and sing their way through the whole debacle.

Once again these two jump around to songs and dance routines that kids could only get the hang of after repeated viewings and if you can get your kids to do this more power to you. Mine would not watch it after the first time and lost interest before it was over. The only redeeming part of the disc is that it does show real kids doing exercises that got my kids bopping around.

Vocals are heavily synthesised once again, dehumanising the whole process to the kids and it essentially is very try hard. The music is up tempo and good for bopping, it's the presenters that leave you cold.

There are 12 songs on the DVD and despite the "simple dance routines" promised on the back of the cover (and they are simple), there are simply too many steps to show in the space of time they give you. Amy does sound like she could pass off as a halfway decent kids show host however it just doesn't work for her in this format.

To quote Pauline Hanson "I don't like it". And when we're quoting Pauline about a kids (sorry, KidZ) disc, we are in trouble.
