Love Monster is a heartwarming show that kids and parents will find easy to love. The lead character is a perfect reflection of preschoolers' inner worlds (though, this being a cartoon, he also lives alone and reads the newspaper in the morning). Each episode focuses on a problem that will feel very relevant to young kids, like being afraid of going down the big slide at the bouncy castle. As the kids of Fluffytown face these challenges, they are superb at naming emotions and communicating them to each other.

As a result, the social-emotional lessons illustrated by the plots will seem very real to kids and not too heavy-handed. There's also a focus on how it's okay that kids are still learning how to handle tough situations, and that they will keep learning these skills even when they're "elders." Kids will be drawn to Love Monster for the silly and adorable world he lives in, but they'll stay for the sweet stories about navigating growing up.
