A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Kids can learn or practice skills, including identifying colors, shapes, numbers, sounds, movements, and animals. Repetition of concepts, especially through song, reinforces lessons.
The characters show kindness, collaboration, and an excitement for learning. They overcome fears like being scared of the dark, and they wear helmets while bike riding.
Positive Role Models
Miffy and friends treat each other kindly, help each other work through emotions, and practice skills like bike riding and counting or identifying animals and colors. They are diverse in "skin" color.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Miffy the Movie is targeted at the littlest viewers with its deliberate pace, sweet songs, kind characters, and basic educational messages. The characters, all bunnies and other animals, are diverse in "skin" color. They continually repeat clues and discoveries, including through song, which helps reinforce lessons. When a character expresses fear in one nighttime scene, the others comfort him. Their animated world, full of soft edges and prime colors, is calming.

Is It Any Good?
The soft-edged world of this Dutch film is reminiscent of Fisher Price's Little People, and the characters and story are just as sweet, positive, and educational. Miffy the Movie will soothe the littlest viewers with its lovely orchestral soundtrack and happy songs. Its uncomplicated world and storyline of characters overcoming minor challenges and solving basic riddles are both pleasant and instructive. The target audience can watch the 68-minute film in shorter segments now that it's streaming.
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.
