The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Kioka is a preschool series that celebrates imaginative play through the adventures of a young girl whose toys come to life when she shakes her magical snow globe. The characters make discoveries and experience new things at a young child's pace, finding humor, excitement, wonder, and occasionally a little worry in the unfamiliar. Through it all, Kioka remains a confident leader and loyal friend to her toys, who turn to her for guidance and direction. This gentle series is a sweet choice for preschoolers with big imaginations themselves.
What's the story?
KIOKA follows the adventures of an imaginative young girl and her animal friends who come to life when she shakes her magical snow globe and transports all of them into it. Together Kioka (voiced by Lexi Jourden) and her friends have fun, make new discoveries, and learn about their world and the things in it.
Is it any good?
With gently paced stories and simple animation, this series has the look and feel of a favorite picture book. Kioka's big imagination inspires the characters' experiences, which expose them to new sights, sounds, and emotions with mixed results that preschoolers will understand.
Much like Doc McStuffins and the magic she casts with a press of her stethoscope, Kioka delights in playing with her toy friends, and kids will embrace the idea that anything is possible with a bit of imagination. This sweet show emphasizes the value of curiosity, the excitement of discovery, and the joys of friendship.
