Is It Any Good?
Angelina Ballerina is charming. The young mouselings are sweet to each other and earnest in their attempts to be good dancers, good students, and good kids. This collection shows how the best intentions can easily go awry, in ways that might seem familiar to young viewers. Even better, it shows how kids can make wise decisions and solve their real-world problems. There's nothing flashy about this series -- no explosions, no robots, and no tie-ins with fancy toys. Instead, it's just timeless, wholesome entertainment for young children.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
