Cute show

A sweet show that's safe for kids to watch. The characters are friendly, positive and happy and are very family-oriented. They are colorful and can represent all types of kids equally. They also always show the characters being physically active or creative, which is great to see.

A motivation for the children to dream big

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (10 ):

Henry Hugglemonster offers preschoolers a delightful hero who's always up for adventures and never misses a chance to learn something new. As a middle kid in his family, Henry always has feelings to share with his viewers, and his interactions with his parents, siblings, and friends model positive communication and relationships for tots.

Based on an award-winning children's book called I'm a Happy Hugglewug by Irish author Niamh Sharkey, Henry's stories will resonate with the preschool set because they're seen through his eyes. The appealing characters are surpassed only by creative animation that brings to life Henry's monster-filled world and all the unique personalities within it, so there's a lot to like about this energetic, well-rounded preschool series.

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.
