Positive Messages

There’s some quirky mishaps throughout, but friendship, family, loyalty, and love remain themes. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Heidi is sweet, charming, kind, giving, tries to be helpful, and is strong and fiercely loyal. Other characters also have their own charms and flaws. Some like Heidi, but others aren’t fond of her. 

Violence & Scariness

Some slapstick humor (spills, falls, etc.). A few mild arguments may seem aggressive to non-Spanish speakers, but the majority of exchanges are passionate and filled with humor.

Innocent romances develop, and a kiss or two is exchanged.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Heidi, bienvenida a casa is a Spanish-language, tween-oriented musical soap opera based on Johanna Spyri's classic story Heidi. There’s some innocent romance, arguments that are more slapstick than serious, and a young girl suffers from agoraphobia, but there’s no truly edgy content to worry about.

What's the story?

Based on Johanna Spyri's Heidi, HEIDI, BIENVENIDA A CASA (translation: Welcome Home Heidi) is a popular Argentine tween soap that gives the classic story a contemporary touch. Chiara Francia plays Heidi, a girl who lives in the mountains with her grandfather (Fernando Fernández), her best friend Pedro (Francisco Francia), and her animals. But when her aunt removes her from the home and takes her to the city to live in the Sessemen mansion to accompany Clara (Victoria Ramos), a girl with agoraphobia who is being looked after by Susy Rottermeier (Florencia Benitez). Once she arrives, she faces new adventures in the bustling city, but also meets a crew of interesting folks, including Toro (Victor D’Alessandro) and Emma (Mercedes Lambre). Together they live the highs and lows of every day life, all while problem solving, falling in love, and making music together. 

Is it any good?

This energetic series offers a very modern adaptation of the classic tale, but does so with the all charm and lessons about family, friendship, and love that the original story is known for. The characters are quirky, and the pop music performances, crazy adventures, and innocent romantic entanglements are geared towards tween viewers. The soap opera-like style offers some cultural nuances that may feel a little over-the-top when compared to U.S.-produced comedy series, and it may take a little time for non-Spanish speakers to interpret some of the humor when using subtitles. Nonetheless, even if tweens aren’t familiar with Johanna Spyri's ​book, Heidi, bienvenida a casa is compelling enough to keep them entertained.
