Catchy songs, fun, harmless

These are short, catchy songs that are not overly annoying and have cute animations. Have not seen anything inappropriate. Some songs have numbers but I wouldn't say it is really educational, just harmless and fun. My kids watch this at preschool.

Is It Any Good?

This boldly animated series is the visual equivalent of listening to your preschooler's favorite CD in the car. The songs are simple and repetitive (very repetitive, in many cases), and they're destined to remain lodged in your subconscious long after the show is turned off. Many are silly, made even more so by the accompanying video that brings characters such as Connie Cockroach, Lil Yellow Chickadee, and the bug band the Mothballs to life.

While the learning component doesn't dominate Lottie Dottie Chicken, many of the songs and rhymes incorporate concepts such as number sense and color recognition in organic ways that don't broadcast to kids that they're learning by listening. This Brazilian show also features international folk songs for kids among its repertoire for a well-rounded soundtrack and a broader experience for kids in the audience.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
