Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pinkfong Wonderstar is an animated series about the adventures of a pink fox named Pinkfong who helps solve problems for others in his community. The stories emphasize positive messages about kindness, sharing, compassion, and friendship, with relevant themes introduced at the start of each episode and reinforced as events play out. Colorful characters, engaging animation, and original music bolster this series and ensure kids will want to watch.
Is It Any Good?
Pinkfong's boundless enthusiasm is balanced by Hogi's more measured, cerebral approach to challenges, and the result is sweet stories that emphasize teamwork, friendship, and kindness. No problem is too big or too small for this dynamic duo, especially when Pinkfong taps into his bag of magical tricks and finds an unpredictable solution. Together these friends demonstrate that even though they are different from each other in many ways, it's the qualities that they share that really matter.
Pinkfong Wonderstar is structured somewhat unusually as each episode starts with Pinkfong and Hogi reflecting on events that already happened, which they synopsize using photos before delving into the story itself. It works well for the show, giving preschoolers a quick overview of the story they will see, introducing new characters outside of the plot structure, and drawing attention to the social-emotional theme that is central to the episode. All of this makes it easy for kids to grasp the positive messages the show has to offer.
