What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that these little girls are training to become witches. Some moral lessons about empathy and care-giving might rub off on kids, but some of the language can be a bit gruff ("Kick butt" and "shut up"). Younger kids may find the line between fantasy and reality blurred.
What's the story?
In MAGICAL DO RE MI, three third-grade friends named Dorie, Reannie, and Mirabelle learn the ways of magic by casting spells and being mentored by their superiors. As Witchlings, the girls are required to pass eight stages of apprenticeship to become full fledged witches. They each have little fairy companions whom they must protect, which demands that they behave responsibly.
Is it any good?
Young kids will love watching them dress in their special costumes, and may emulate how the girls fly through the air on their brooms. Generally, the adventures center around helping other kids, and some themes include lessons of respect and working hard to achieve goals. There's less fluff than other girl-oriented shows, but some exaggerated emotional reactions and language ("shut up") can be distracting.

Families can talk about magic and magical powers. If kids could have any magic power in the world, what would it be, and why?
