Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Lalaloopsy Ponies: The Big Show introduces ponies to the Lalaloopsy world (and world of available merchandise) and features a brightly visual story about friendship and teamwork and little moments among friends. The messages are positive, if a little jumpily paced, and follow the dolls and ponies as they prepare for a big performance.

Is It Any Good?
Fans of the dolls likely will enjoy the addition of ponies to the lineup in LALALOOPSY PONIES: THE BIG SHOW. This is a visual feast for a preschooler -- bright colors, doll-like characters (replete with button eyes), and lots of fast-paced action and dreamy backdrops. There's not much to it, but the simple messages are positive, if a bit jumpy in terms of plot and story. The main concern for parents is that this feeds a direct desire for more merchandise in the Lalaloopsy world, but it's otherwise an upbeat adventure focused on the little things that matter a lot: finding out what your friends really like, learning that friends don't all like the same things, working together to achieve goals, and having fun.
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.
