Formulaic series doesn't wow, but friendly themes persist.

I wanted this to be better for my girls.

I have two girls, six and eight, and I wanted this to be better for them. In my opinion, the characters seem stereotypical and the topics seemed to give my girls unnecessary worries about boys and friendships that they didn't previously have. May be better suited for older girls.

Pretty lame

This show is pretty lame. The songs are lame. The stories are lame and predictable. this show doesn't really have anything poignant to say, but I guess it's not a terrible message either. Very meh.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (4):

This so-so Lego series is less blatant in its product placement than its predecessor, but it doesn't offer much content that distinguishes it from the numerous other shows with similar themes. The characters are very one-dimensional, which adds to the already bothersome predictability of the episodes' plots, so viewers can easily guess how each girl will react to events and how the stories will play out.

As its title implies, the teen characters learn time and again that friendship is a powerful positive force, and every story offers the opportunity to rediscover their respect for each other. That's a good thing, and it's a message that can't be overemphasized for girls in particular. While not every character is exemplary all the time, the overall effect and eventual lessons are generally decent.
