Positive and uplifting

My 2.5 year old son loves this show and my 9 and 11 year old daughters will sit and watch it with him as well. It has very positive language especially concerning things that might make young kids upset. For example “we haven’t found it, YET!” One of my personal favorites was talking about how she loves when she makes a mistake because she learns from it and can try again. Encourages kids to keep trying.

Entertaining and Educational

My daughter really enjoys this show. It has catchy songs and fun colors but also teaches basic items such as colors. It keeps her engaged without me worrying about inappropriate content. I love that there are activities to help her be creative and use her imagination too. Lots of fun and definitely a show I feel safe with her watching.

Parents say (27 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Gabby's joyous escapades inside the playhouse in her bedroom are so much fun, and kids with a soft spot for felines will love them even more because of how that theme is carried through many aspects of the show. Each day a different problem presents itself, and Gabby turns to her dollhouse friends to help her fix it. Visiting them takes her through the house's many rooms and gives her opportunities to craft, bake, sing, garden, experiment, and play with them.

Gabby's Dollhouse is also a place where she and her friends learn about working together, learning from mistakes, solving problems, and being reliable for each other. Each room in the house is a magical world in and of itself, and as Gabby visits them, she and her friends cooperate in creative ways to solve the problem of the day. Although not every attempt is successful, each one teaches them something important, and they're better for the experience. Original music and an engaging animation style round out this appealing series.
