Imagination and Nursery Rhymes

Having an 18m old who loves this show, it's on repeat and honestly I don't mind. The show has interactions with each character that make you laugh as an adult, and hearing the nursery rhymes you grew up with (even when lyrics are changed to fit the episodes theme) and seeing characters from these nursery rhymes is almost nostalgic. On top of it being entertaining enough for adults, it's great for kids imo. It teaches friendship, imagination by playing make-believe every episode, along with helping others and going on adventures. There's only 2 seasons and I can't wait to see what else they have in store for my little one. (she also enjoys RTT's sing-along episodes and the YouTube music videos).

This is obnoxious programming. It provides NO educational content, repetitive music, and questionable themes.

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (5):
Kids say (1):

This sweet production's charming animation style bridges the vintage nature of nursery rhymes and fresh new iterations of the characters and music. Daisy and Cole are engaging tour guides for viewers' journey into Rhyme Time Town. Each story begins with them engaged in some kind of play or imaginative adventure into which a neighbor arrives with some sort of problem that Cole and Daisy immediately assume as their own. After some attempted fixes that miss the mark -- and multiple opportunities to learn from mistakes -- the Rhyme Time crew comes through.

Rhyme Time Town is a surprisingly pleasant watch for parents of the target audience of preschoolers, thanks mostly to the new mixes of old classics like "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and "Mary Had a Little Lamb." This is a soundtrack adults won't mind listening to over and over (and over) with their little ones, and the stories have fun with reimagined images and personalities from these familiar stories.
