An Honest Review

After really loving Ninjago I thought that Chima would be really good , perhaps even better than Ninjago! But sadly it did not live up to my expectations and many people will say the same . I honestly tried to power through the first season of Chima with a positive attitude but it quickly faded. The voice acting doesn't really match up with the situations and at times the voices can be very annoying. Although it does have it's good moments , there are other times that I just can't say the same . It is just as violent as Ninjago . I would only recommend this series if you are an extreame animal lover and you are a very young child who finds amusement in slipping over and blowing raspberries. Honestly , a bit of a disappointment.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8):
Kids say (23):

LEGENDS OF CHIMA is a thoughtful, beautifully designed animated series that exceeds expectations for a story designed to sell accompanying toys. From the characters' complicated relationships to the mysticism behind the evolution of the talking animal species, this is far more than a one-dimensional tale meant to merely fill kids' time. Instead it explores friendship, trust, loyalty, and honesty against a backdrop of conflict that's mild enough to appeal to grade schoolers (and their parents).

Will the show add to the lure of LEGO's themed products for your kids? Absolutely, but this shouldn't be the only factor in your judgment of Legends of Chima. Its unique story offers numerous teaching moments that deal with issues like impulsiveness, emotional bullying, and the fallout of misplaced fear. Even better, the show is so enjoyable, you may want to tune in with your kids, which makes it easier to chat afterward about the topics it raises.
