This whimsical show teaches young viewers interpersonal skills and self-control strategies through the characters' adventures in a vibrantly colored land. Each episode starts with Mia and her friends pondering some kind of problem in the real world before transporting themselves to the imaginary one, where they encounter another challenge that helps them see the first from a new perspective. Together they relate what they learn to their real-life dilemma when they return home.

Mia's Magic Playground pays remarkable attention to little details that make it seem as though many aspects of the show stepped right out of a preschooler's imagination. From self-explanatory character names like the Leafthings, Nice Cream Bear, and SoccerSauruses, to the nature of a place that brings to life whatever its visitors can think of, this sweet series plays right into the senses of its young viewers. Happily it capitalizes on the chance to teach them some useful and applicable social-emotional lessons while it's at it, making Mia's Magic Playground an exceptionally well-rounded choice for this age group.
