A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

Because the series is nonverbal, viewers see the characters work out their differences and extend friendship with actions instead of words.

 

Positive Messages

Some adventures require the bunnies to work together to achieve a goal or finish a project. Others see them competing with, teasing, and/or showing frustration with each other. While their sunny dispositions always win out in the end and they wind up every story as friends, there are moments when emotions like envy, anger, or fear are evident in their actions.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The bunnies love adventure and trying new things together, but they have different personalities that sometimes cause conflict within the group. When negative behavior like bossiness or mischievous intent arises, the bunnies must work out how to resolve the trouble.

Violence & Scariness

No violence that causes harm, but the bunnies' antics result in lots of tumbles, collisions, and other calamities that are meant to be funny.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Sunny Bunnies is a wordless preschool series about five brightly colored bunnies who seek adventures and often find trouble that they then must solve. Physical comedy like falls, tumbles, and crashes are common but don't result in injury. There's also some levity at the expense of the characters' different personalities -- one is bossy, one is afraid of heights, one is clumsy, etc. As the bunnies work to fix whatever calamity they've caused, they often find it's easier with teamwork. Because there's no dialogue in the stories, viewers must figure out emotions from the characters' actions and mannerisms.

My 3 yr old is laughing out loud

It's fairly simple, no talking which I don't mind. Silly antics of little bunnies, mostly physical humor. I don't love some of the role-modeling... Continue reading

What's the story?

SUNNY BUNNIES is the story of five round bunnies who emerge from drops of color emitted from a light source, typically the sun. Turbo is the group leader, a mini orange fireball with a bossy streak and tons of energy. Sisters Iris and Shiny love to do things together, but they're very protective of their belongings and sometimes get upset if they're taken. Big Boo has a good heart that helps his friends see past his chronic clumsiness, and Hopper, the littlest of the five, makes trouble for the group but always finds a way to make up for it in the end. Each episode sees the bunnies in a new location, exploring their surroundings, playing, and inevitably causing and cleaning up from some kind of a mess.

Is it any good?

With vibrant CGI effects and darling spherical characters bursting with personality, this preschool series masters the art of nonverbal storytelling. The episodes are short, running only about three minutes apiece, and simple enough that words are mostly unnecessary. The good news is that this makes it easy for young viewers to follow along. The less good news is that there's not much plot development or opportunity for stressing a message of any kind.

Sunny Bunnies is a joyful, comical show with silly mischief and friendship dynamics (competition, sharing, hurting feelings, etc.) that may seem familiar to kids. While they are resolved in unrealistic time and ways on-screen, they do raise some issues parents and kids can discuss after the antics are done.
