What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Miffy's Adventures Big and Small is a sweet series inspired by the main character in a series of children's books. Its strong messages about friendship are evident in every relationship Miffy has -- she's eager to try new things and to learn, and she inspires her friends to do the same. The show's brief length (episodes run approximately eight minutes) makes it easy to enjoy the show a little at a time, which is perfect for this age group.

What's the story?
In MIFFY'S ADVENTURES BIG AND SMALL, a sweet little bunny named Miffy joins her best friends Grunty and Melanie in adventures of their own making around their neighborhood. From keeping busy on a rain day to battling the nerves on a first camping experience, Miffy and her friends always learn something while they're having fun.
Is it any good?
The darling star of children's books delights in this simple, narrated series that's just right for the preschool crowd. Miffy and her friends are enthralled by the same kinds of experiences young viewers would be: watching a plant grow, splashing in puddles, trying a new food, and so on. They encourage each other and have fun together, all while reminding kids how worthwhile it can be to embark on adventures of any size.
With friendship as a recurring theme and constant reminders of the value of being curious about the world, Miffy's Adventures Big and Small is an excellent series for preschoolers. Need more reason to like it? The episodes run about eight minutes in length, so there's no concern over excess screen time with this one in the watch cue.
