Allmusic 2.5/5 stars[1]

In her review on Allmusic, critic Heather Phares says the effect of kids singing contemporary hits can be "fun or creepy" depending on the song. The punk-pop songs and nonsensical hits fare the best, but "it's more than a little unsettling to hear children singing along to the chorus of Britney Spears' 'Oops!... I Did It Again'."[1]
