With its animation roots dating back to the '90s, Magic Adventures of Mumfie isn't so glamorous as many of the modern CGI series at preschoolers' disposal, but it proves that quality content needn't rely on fancy packaging. Whimsical animation and soft-spoken nature of the characters give this delightful series a calmness that's soothing to the senses, much like read-along time with the books on which it's based would be. What's more, the presence of a narrator helps tots connect the characters' actions with their emotions by making observations like "Mumfie was worried" to bridge gaps in dialogue. And of course there's the stories' focus on interpersonal skills, which gives kids great examples of relating to others in kind ways.
