Cute movie

The movie is a little tedious for adults but very enjoyable for kiddos. The dolls work together to search for Pillow.

A FUN movie for kids!

I've had to watch this movie about 3 times a week for the past two months, and must say I actually like it!! Sure, it doesn't have ABCs & 123s like most have complained about, but so what? There's plenty of that out there already. And I totally disagree with other parents comments about age. I've had a 2, 3, and 6 year old glued to this movie, they loved it. This movie promotes working with others and having a positive attitude. To be honest, the folks in government could benefit from this movie! LOL It's a cute movie, and the girls who did the voices did a great job bringing the dolls to life with their own unique personalities. It's a FUN movie!!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (5):

The only way the folks behind this endeavor were able to produce a 70-minute movie from such a flimsy premise was to pad the story with far too many tiny obstacles to overcome. Lalaloopsy Land may be full of sweetly named locales such as Milky Lake and Dandelion Meadow, but not even the cutest hand-sewn dolls can save this tale from becoming a soporific endeavor for parents and movie-savvy kids. Sure, the littlest viewers and Lalaloopsy fans might get a kick out of the dolls' attempt to find Pillow, but the plot gets old really fast for anyone old enough to read.

Halfway through, grown-ups and older kids (as in, already in elementary school) might decide they'd rather take a nap rather than continue to watch the sugary-sweet girls and their pets continue on their seemingly never-ending search for their friend. On a positive note, kids who are sensitive to any tension or mean characters will find this tale free of both.
