What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Remy and Boo is a sweet show for very young kids about the friendship between a girl (Remy) and her adorable pink robot (Boo). The storylines are simple and easy to follow, and each episode emphasizes a social-emotional lesson like taking responsibility for your mistakes or making sure that you take naps. Remy and Boo is a great show that preschoolers will love and parents can feel good about.

What's the story?
Remy is an adventurous six-year-old girl with a can-do spirit who lives in the seaside town of Dolphin Bay. Her sidekick is her puffy pink robot-dog Boo, who is there for her when she needs "snuzzles" or a gadget from his robot backpack. Remy's grandpa Pappy and curmudgeonly neighbor Mr. Periwinkle are often around, as are Remy's parents, who own an ice cream shop in town. Remy and Boo's curiosity often gets them into preschool-level-trouble. Remy skips her nap because she's so excited to watch the meteor shower, or Boo goes around Dolphin Bay stamping paint on things that don't belong to him. They learn from their mistakes together, and set things right by the end of each episode.
Is it any good?
Remy and Boo is a super-cute show for young kids that does a great job of teaching life lessons. Robot dog Boo is one of the cutest characters on preschool TV today, with his marshmallowy pink body and playful personality. He recharges by taking naps or by getting "snuzzles" from Remy (how adorable is that!).
Beyond the cute-factor, this show teaches social-emotional skills to preschoolers through simple storylines that even young kids will understand. Remy and Boo doesn't quite match the gold-standard level of social-emotional learning in Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, but it's clear that storylines are written with child development in mind. In general, kids at this age aren't very good at learning lessons from stories, so kids will benefit from parents reinforcing the message after they watch. But if you're not able to watch with your child, no worries. Kids will be still entertained by the characters and enjoy the relatable stories.
