Review this title!

What's the story?

The animation in TODDWORLD looks like a child's drawing -- bright colors and funny shapes abound. In each episode, Todd and his friends confront a challenge: a strange plant that suddenly pops out of the ground, or a lost baby platypus. The friends have to figure out how to deal with their many obstacles in a way that will be fun for young viewers.

Is it any good?


The lessons are simple but good: don't judge someone until you know them, and you don't have to look the same to be a family (the platypus' mom turns out to be a kangaroo). Everyone is accepted, and spontaneous, imaginative ideas and playfulness are encouraged.

There's not a lot of joking or fooling around, just straightforward but gentle lessons about basic life lessons. It's a nice show for families to watch together and could easily lead to good discussions about how the show's situations occur in everyday life.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the themes of the series and how they relate to themselves. What characters are kids most drawn to? Can they relate scenarios back to their own life?

Best childrens program on the television!

I absoloutly love this show. When it comes on in our house i have to get up and dance with my little ones - in fact if i'm out of the room my 3yr old shouts me to come in so i don't miss it! Yes, i know, very sad indeed. P.S does anyone know if the jukebox music is available to buy?

I love love love ToddWorld

The characters have understandable fears and problems to solve. Everyone treats each other with kindness and love. And, I hate to admit it, but the songs between segments of the show are really catchy.

Good Show! Different

This show is different...we LIKE it! The characters are different, wide variety! The show does not talk down to toddler/preschoolers. My grandson feels it's a 'big kid' show, but...I think it's aimed at kids from 2-6 even! Very nice.
