Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that TrollsTopia follows the same lead characters of the Trolls movie and the Trolls: The Beat Goes On! show, but expands the universe by introducing whole new tribes of trolls. There's great music and positive messages around friendship, but also a fair share of potty humor (the glitter farts remain constant across the franchise). Some of the characters, especially newcomer Val Thundershock, can be pretty sassy when talking to each other. Overall, Trolls fans will love meeting the new trolls and watching lead character Poppy try really hard to befriend them.
Is It Any Good?
Kids will love the fun characters from the new tribes and how they perform catchy music in different styles. There's lots of random silliness that will tickle this age group's funny bones. Like the other Trolls series, Trollstopia is visually beautiful with its candy-colored world and copious amounts of glitter. Lead troll Poppy has a very high emotional intelligence, and sets a great example for how to be a good friend and how to openly communicate your feelings.
Parents may be less enthusiastic about the potty humor, and how the rocker Val Thundershock has a rude rock-and-roll attitude (though Poppy is attempting to reform her). Also, by creating tribes based on musical styles, the show falls back on associated stereotypes and makes the tribe members all kind of one-note. However, overall this show is mostly pure fun, with some positive messages.
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.
