Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that JingleKids is a popular Russian animated series about kids and animals who live in a magical world enjoying their day-to-day hobbies. There are lots of little mishaps during the friends' adventures, but no one really gets hurt. On occasion crude weapons (like fake guns) are pulled, but nothing ever happens as a result. There are also some slight cultural nuances visible while the characters interact, but this doesn't have an impact on the overall stories or the positive ways they socialize with each other. Ultimately, it's more entertaining than educational, but appropriate for kids.
Is It Any Good?
This imaginative and beautifully animated series, which is extremely popular in Russia, offers a colorful cast of characters who live in a magical world enjoying their day-to-day hobbies. Much of the entertainment comes from the mishaps unintentionally created by Trouble and his furry counterparts, which often seems to have a domino effect on the rest of the gang.
But friendship is also a major theme here, and while there are moments of frustration, everything is always forgiven in the end. Despite some minor cultural differences in the way the characters sometimes behave, JingleKids offers some universal entertainment that kids will enjoy.
