What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the tween-oriented animated series Lola & Virginia features themes such as jealousy, competitiveness, and friendship. There's lots of bickering and scheming and not a whole lot of lessons to be learned from it, making this a less-than-ideal choice for young kids. But younger tweens will probably enjoy the antics.

What's the story?

The animated series LOLA & VIRGINIA features sixth-grader Lola, a brainy girl who's discontented with her average life, and her nemesis, snobby, rich, schoolmate Virginia Toffen. The two become enemies, with one always trying to outsmart the other to get what she wants, especially when it comes to their crush, the skateboard-loving Charley. Adding to the fray are their classmates, including Lola's friends Poppy and Haide and Virginia's friends Beatrice and Leticia. 

Is it any good?

The popular Spanish series, which has aired throughout Europe, Brazil, and Southeast Asia, contains universal youth-oriented themes such as school crushes and social competitiveness. But most of the show is focused on the petty, jealous competitions between Lola and Virginia, who are constantly finding ways to outdo each other. 

It doesn't offer a lot of moral lessons, but some of the sneaky behavior featured here often leads to unfortunate results. There are moments that underscore friendship and loyalty, too. Tweens who like this sort of thing will find it entertaining. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about Lola and Virginia's behavior. Are Lola's efforts to foil Virginia appropriate, even if Virginia isn't being very nice? Are there better ways of dealing with people you don't like? 

  • How accurately does this show reflect your real life? Do you argue with friends in the same way as Lola and Virginia? What are some helpful ways of managing conflict with friends?
