Great for parents and kids

Accessible to young kids (2+ years) but still fun for adults. My 3 year old really enjoys this show. He does get a tad hyper when watching it, I think excited by Timmy’s naughtiness at times. That’s the only disadvantage for my family.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10 ):
Kids say (14 ):

Every aspect of this series is perfectly suited for its young audience, from the bright animation to the episodes' brief 10-minute length. Even the absence of dialogue serves preschoolers well, since they learn to recognize the characters' gestures and facial expressions as indications of their emotions instead of relying solely on words.

Fans of Aardman Animations' hit series Shaun the Sheep may recognize young Timmy as the baby lamb who gets pulled into the fray of the herd's antics in that series. Now Timmy is at least partially grown up and off to school, where he doesn't miss a beat getting into troubles like cutting in line, shirking on classroom duties, and hiding his classmates' things -- all very relatable themes for Timmy Time's preschool audience. Kids will see how these actions affect his friends and teachers and will benefit from watching how Timmy learns to consider others' feelings.
