Amazing show and great inspiration for our kids!

My daughters are 2 and almost 4, they both have loved the Slumberkins collection of different creatures we have collected so far. They aren’t interested in story time yet, but that will come with time. They loved seeing their friends on the big screen when I turned the show on for the first time! ❤️ What a special way to bring their favorite characters to life. We absolutely love our Big Feelings Fox because the color matches the Fox in the show. We are hopeful that Slumberkins releases more special edition creatures (like Big Feelings Fox) that will give our children the color they are seeing on the different creatures in the show, even if they aren’t puppet style like in the show. Although, a collection of Puppets like from the show would be an amazing addition to the Slumberkins activity section for sale. ❤️

Sweet show about feelings

I really enjoyed watching this with my 3 1/2 year old. She really enjoyed the characters and the storylines, and I appreciated how the character turned to the “audience” and processed their feelings. There were some silly parts that we got a good giggle out of, plus some relatable moments. All in all, I hope they come out with a season 2 and soon - we have the 8 episodes on repeat over here.

Is It Any Good?

This preschool series is fun, upbeat, educational, and entertaining. The Slumberkins series' social-emotional lessons build off its already well-respected brand. The show's themes are timely and important for young viewers to learn. The cuddly characters and beautiful animation are sure to capture preschoolers' attention. The joyful nature of the show is reminiscent of Sesame Street.
