Is It Any Good?

Although young preschoolers might love the cute and bright imagery, those who aren't fans of the Lalaloopsy series might find themselves feeling a bit nauseated. Much of the story involves princesses and fairies telling each other how lovely they are and how lovely the decorations are and how delicious the food is. It's all very sweet and polite, but there's a decided emphasis on looks (and sugar!) that many parents might find distasteful. Although the plot does focus on friendship and working together, it's hard not to be distracted by the superficiality of it all.

Parents also may find it hard to discount the obvious ploy for merchandising. Fans of the Lalaloopsy series may be able to tell the difference between a Lala-Oopsie and a Lalaloopsy and be eager to collect an entire new series of dolls, but parents may be hard-pressed to tell the difference.

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.
