Inappropriate language

I had always thought that this harmless fun, but I recently heard a swear word in an episode in season 2. I even went back and checked this with the subtitles on and my fears were confirmed. This is completely unacceptable on a programme rated as a U. My suggested age rating is due to this language issue, though I recognise it's been made for much younger children, around 5 years and upwards.

Little children should not be watching this show because they are not mature enough for the violent people in this show. I couldn’t handle this show because it was soo ABUSING.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9 ):
Kids say (8 ):

This CGI series is pleasant enough, and its themes are worthwhile for kids, but it lacks a certain pizzazz that would convince parents it's more than just a lengthy Lego commercial. The stories are formulaic and seem designed for product placement, often hopping from one venue (ahem, play set) to another without furthering the plot. There are even instances of structures falling into heaps of bricks for no particular reason other than to remind those watching that they are indeed made of Legos.

Even so, LEGO FRIENDS captures the best qualities of friendship and illustrates them nicely for kids. Olivia and her friends never let their differences get in the way of what makes them alike, and they always appreciate each other's special qualities. It's not a perfect production, but this show has some merit for kids, so long as watching doesn't give them the "gimmes" when they walk down the Lego aisle at the store.
