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.

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Everything's Rosie is an animated preschool series with strong themes about friendship and imaginative play. Rosie and her friends enjoy being outside in their garden home where rolling hills, rock caves, and meandering streams set the scene for their adventures. (Of course, the talking trees and animals are a boon to the imagination as well.) The characters' experiences teach them about getting along and solving problems (especially when mischievous Will stirs things up), and some stories also include more tangible learning content, as when Rosie and her friends investigate echoes and how they're made. These gentle stories and characters are a fun pick for preschoolers.

What's the Story?
EVERYTHING'S ROSIE follows the adventures of a young girl named Rosie (voiced by Joanna Ruiz) who spends her days playing and exploring with her friends. Her best friend and constant companion is Raggles (Emma Tate), a blue rabbit with insatiable curiosity. Kindly Big Bear (Wayne Forester) is always happy to join in Rosie's fun, even if his clumsiness sometimes gets in the way. Mischievous Will (Teresa Gallagher), sweet Holly (Gallagher again), outspoken Bluebird (Tate again), and insightful Oakley (Forester again) round out this group of friends who never lack fun and always find something to learn from their experiences.
Is It Any Good?
These whimsical stories of friendship and adventure are well suited to preschoolers' grasp of the world. Ribbon-haired Rosie is an endearing ringleader for her friends, who always enjoy getting pulled in to one or another of her escapades. Her expansive garden home has all kinds of nature-based features that inspire imagination, such as mazes, streams, talking trees, and a beaver dam and pool. Then, of course, there's Rosie's playhouse, complete with a slide she uses to get outside and all kinds of fun once you step in the door.
Everything's Rosie reflects the joys of cooperative play and friendship, but that doesn't mean there aren't moments of conflict among the characters. Just like in real life, they can be disagreeable and testy with each other, and they often have different ideas and opinions. Happily, though, they learn a lot as they resolve the issues that arise during their adventures, and there's always something positive for viewers to take from the content.
