Nice show.

I think this show is a good one, my kids enjoy it, and it's appropriate for their age. I have a 12 and 9 year old, and they both are having a good time watching it!

Cute show

Except, one episode focuses on buying a bra, and it's weird for little girls to be thinking about boobs. Also, in the Halloween episode, there's a creepy bobblehead toy, and Lizzie plans a ruse where she pretends to become possessed, scares the bully girl and grabs toy weapons, flinging them at people.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
