Though this story's characters are appealing for young kids, the overall experience ends up missing the mark. There's not much going on in the story, as the focus of Little Owl - Rhymes for Kid‪s is mostly on highlighting the rhyming scheme. And though some kids might get a kick out of rejecting the silly suggestions that don't rhyme, it's quite likely that others will just be downright confused by the whole thing. Some final suggestions are also a bit odd, such as using frozen fries. Others will be unfamiliar to a non-British audience, such as the word "patch" to mean a bandage. And the animation is very basic and simplified. For example, images are recycled and used again with different labels, and the head bump remedies hover over Owl's head in a half-hearted attempt to make it look like the Owl is trying the treatment out. It feels like the bulk of resources for making Little Owl - Rhymes for Kid‪s was invested in creating the story in 14 different languages. That linguistic variety alone may make the purchase worth it for some families. Otherwise, parents would do better just reading their kids a classic rhyming book.
