We’re a Buddi family!!

I LOVE Buddi, and so do my kids. It’s such a hidden gem, I can’t believe it isn’t everywhere! The visuals are gorgeous, and the characters are so sweet with the cutest noises. My youngest kids, 13 months and 3 years, love watching and are absolutely enamored with the show. The older kids enjoy watching the little ones react and laugh with the characters! I highly recommend this show for anyone with young kids needing a burst of happy and fun.

This show is the 2020 equivalent to Teletubbies: it is likely to delight very young children but not teach them a ton. The design is stunningly beautiful with the characters' vibrant colors and candy-like scenery, and its musical soundscape is similarly pleasant. Each episode is one continuous string of musical chimes and sound effects. Toddlers will enjoy the characters' voices, which are kind of like digital baby babbles (think if Wall-E was a baby).

While the show is very much benign, its loose themes of friendship and emotion are not likely to be absorbed by its young viewers. The characters don't talk, and the shows are so short, that the very vague lessons like "share toys with your friends" are not concrete enough for this age group.
