Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animated series from the U.K. is cute and colorful, and there's no questionable content. Whether or not it grabs your preschooler's attention will depend on your child's age and sophistication: The stop-motion animation is subpar, giving the characters very stiff facial expressions, so some kids may not find them particularly engaging or endearing.
Is It Any Good?
If you're looking for the next great thing in stop-motion animation, this isn't it; the clay figures are rather stiff in their movements and facial expressions, so it's hard to be really engaged by them (even in a troublesome situation, some of them still look like they have a smile stuck on their face, which may confuse little kids). Also, there's so much going on in each episode that younger viewers may have a hard time following the action.
But the colorful characters and the situations they deal with are fairly imaginative, and the storylines are intended to teach good lessons like teamwork and looking out for one another. And how many other preschooler programs can you name that address organic gardening and composting?
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.
