Parents Need to Know

Is It Any Good?
MUMFIE'S WHITE CHRISTMAS is a bit dated, and, just as in Mumfie's Quest, there are some entertaining musical numbers and side plots that don't always make complete sense. But here is a short, low-peril holiday tale about the discovery of Christmas, anticipation of snow, hanging decorations, parties with friends, and helping each other along the way. It's chock-full of positive messages that offer positive upsides to unwelcome feelings (such as being an oddball, feeling left out, or making heat when the rest of the world around you is cold, as sung by the Eels in the story). Overall the tale focuses on respect, having a strong moral compass, and enjoying friendship. Excellent entertainment for young kids new to celebrating Christmas.
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.
