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.
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.
