Is It Any Good?

This colorful children’s series is designed to highlight how diverse we all are, and how, despite our differences, we can get along. While the young animals share time together at the preschool playing, snacking, fighting, and napping, each one looks and behaves very differently from the other based on their species. Yet, with their teacher’s guidance, they can find different ways to find common ground, even at such a young age.

The series is dubbed in English, which makes it appealing to non-Spanish speaking children. But Minimalitos offers lots of gentle, universally understandable moments that don’t require a spoken language to be understood. The activities featured resemble the typical behavior and play of the age group, and the animals’ reactions to events are easy to recognize. Overall, it’s a fun and entertaining option for preschoolers.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
