Average stories and negative behaviors

Watched 2 episodes of Lego Elves. The stories are OK but rely heavily on drama between the characters. Some scary scenes that are presented in graphic anime cartoon style. But what disappointed the most were the behavioral elements that I do not want my sub-6 year old exposed to (one of the characters calling another one "ugly"; a male elf roughly handling another elf to see if she is wearing the bracelet that he wants to take from her). Bottom line: there is better quality programming available for kids.

This title has:

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

This series is jam-packed with little girl bait -- sparkling rainbow oceans, a flowing-haired Pegasus or three -- and though the plot has a similar amount of depth, there's still something kind of fun about it. The quests Emily and her elf friends go on can be a tad generic, sure, but it's always nice to see a show with a high percentage of female characters, most of whom jump right in on the action and don't need a boy (or boy elf) to lead the way. The girls are depicted as competent and strong. The characters show bravery and compassion, and the elves are always using their special element-based powers to help each other (and Emily) out of various scrapes. Despite the commercial tie-in -- and the likelihood that your child may start begging for the "Naida's Epic Adventure Ship" building set—there are worse messages to expose your kids to.
