The best show for little ones on Netflix

Our daughter loves this show and every True variety. I am pretty picky on what we watch but approved of True right away. It is really nice and funny and cute and wholesome.

Pleasant adventures in a world of cute

Beautiful animation, and adorable character designs! Everything is fantastical and designed for maximum cuteness. Great mini songs throughout. The character Bartleby the cat, is excellent.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (1):

This delightful series offers more of what kids and parents have come to love about True and her compassionate ways. In Wonderful Wishes, she seeks out opportunities to help others, and when she can't manage the job by herself, she finds the tools she needs to do so with others. The process isn't always a quick one, but she's never discouraged in her efforts, and in the end she is rewarded for her perseverance.

What sets True apart from many of her character counterparts is her thoughtful approach to identifying the problems she solves. It's not always obvious what's causing the trouble, and often finding out is a multi-step process that requires patience and contemplation. Similarly, the wishes' roles in a solution aren't always clear from the start, but True trusts herself and their powers, and teamwork eventually wins the day.

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.
