What's the story?
In RHYME TIME TOWN, best friends Daisy the puppy (voiced by Annabelle Westenholz-Smith) and Cole the kitten share adventures, use their imaginations, and solve problems in their nursery rhyme-inspired village. From designing a protective suit for Humpty Dumpty's (Jude Muir) inevitable great falls to helping Mary Mary (Maddie Evans) figure out why a certain lamb is following her everywhere, Daisy and Cole are handy helpers to have around. With new versions of nursery rhymes providing the soundtrack to their adventures, this pair keeps Rhyme Time Town and its residents living in harmony.
Is it any good?
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.
