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.

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.
