I don't know why everybody hates it!!!! I love it! There are some outfit's that other parent's might think are not okay, but nothing too sexy. There are some scary scenes with magic, but for kids over 9, that's not a problem! I rate it iffy, because there are alot of parents that don't like stuff like Bratz, but I have no problem with my kid's watching it! We have a Trollz doll too! I also love the positive message of friendship!!!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (10):

It's difficult to find any redeeming qualities in Trollz. Not only does it seem to exist purely to market a toy line, but it also lacks any educational or meaningful substance. Outside of maintaining their friendship, the only real concerns these Trollz have are hanging out, shopping, and obsessing over boys. Their language is also noticeably negative. Peppered among all of the slang are a lot of words like "loser" and "freak."

Even though it's not violent or scary, Trollz, like Bratz, isn't recommended for kids under 8. It's obviously targeting young children's natural aspirations to be older, then "fulfilling" that desire through shallow teen characters who only exist to sell products.
