Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (39 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Darling, kindhearted Oona will make fast fans of preschoolers who tune in, and they'll learn about various matters of science along with the puffin chick. She and her friends are curious about everything they see and hear in this beautifully animated, sweetly scripted show, and it inspires that same sort of enthusiasm for learning in the show's viewers. That said, the show's narrated style makes it feel more like an animated story time than a classroom lesson, so kids won't even realize there's more to the content than the cute characters' antics.

Puffin Rock also has great things to show kids about family and friend relationships, and parents especially will love Oona and Baba's sweet sibling camaraderie and Oona's willingness to play the role of mentor to her tagalong brother. These characters have a lot to offer preschoolers who watch, and the show's gentle pace makes it enjoyable to watch.
