A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

Some stories show the characters investigating a mystery of some sort that has a learning component to it. In one episode, for instance, Rosie and her friends must learn the origin of a strange echo they hear, so kids learn about echoes and how they work. It's not a primary aspect of the show, but it does round out the content.

Positive Messages

Rosie and her friends embrace adventure and look to learn from each new experience. Kindness, communication, and compassion are recurring themes in their relationships, and they engage in active play that's healthy and fun. Will's mischievous nature sometimes causes strife for his friends, but it's never mean-spirited and usually inspires laughter, not frustration. The characters show creativity and teamwork in their problem-solving skills. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Rosie is curious and outgoing, and her positive attitude makes her fun to be around. Her friends are a well-rounded bunch, and any negative traits (vanity, a sense of mischief) cause few problems but do offer the characters the opportunity to solve those that arise. Positive characteristics such as selflessness, patience, and kindness are on display in all their interactions.

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.
