A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Some social-emotional lessons that will likely go over young kids' heads.
Some positive messages around helping others, telling the truth, etc., but they're not emphasized enough for young viewers.
Positive Role Models
Characters are generally trying to do the right thing but we only get to know them on a surface level.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Sea of Love is a gentle animated series meant for the youngest viewers. While there's no iffy content, there are shows with more substance that are a better fit for this age group.
Is It Any Good?
The animation and art are lovely, and the show has a slow pace that's well suited to the very young demographic. The Sea of Love characters' problems are relatable to little kids and the simple stories are easy to follow. Kids probably aren't getting much out of watching besides entertainment, though; the light social-emotional lessons aren't made clear enough for young viewers. It's hard to get to know the characters, so kids probably won't form much of a connection with them. While there's nothing concerning about this show, there are lots of shows for very young kids that have a more thoughtful, intentional, and educational approach.
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.
