Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2):

Eloise is a beautifully animated adaptation of the classic book series that first won over readers in 1955. But while kids will get a kick out of Eloise's outrageously naughty behavior, some aspects of her lifestyle may make parents hesitate before they approve it for young viewers. The attention lavished on Eloise by her many adult admirers tends to inflate her already bursting ego -- although, on the flipside, she's outgoing and self-reliant and easily befriends many different types of people. What's more, Eloise's penchant for calculated mischief goes mostly unpunished, and is played for laughs throughout the show.

The adults' mostly half-hearted reprimands come across as playful exchanges, and Eloise never pays them much attention. The only adult with any authority over her is Nanny, but since she doesn't accompany Eloise on her romps through the hotel, she's rarely there to correct negative behavior. Parents will want to remind kids why they should never wander away from a caretaker and embark on solo escapades like Eloise does.

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.
