The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Tumble Leaf: Spring-a-Ling Surprise is a charming special that's as entertaining and educational as the regular series. As in the usual episodes, main character Fig, a curious blue fox, finds an item in his thinking box and then figures out a use for it while solving his problem of the day. Today's problem: finding some lost eggs along with new friend Bloom the Bunny. Young fans of Fig and his crew will learn more about the outdoors, perseverance, and working with friends to meet a common goal.
What's the story?
In TUMBLE LEAF: SPRING-A-LING SURPRISE, Fig and friends are on the search for some missing eggs. Without them, they won't be able to witness the “big surprise” promised by new bunny friends Bloom and his daughter, Bulb. Characters are very kind to one another as they work together, and the planting of the special eggs brings everyone together in the end with a little spring magic.
Is it any good?
This special is just as beautiful and engaging as the regular series, with a focus on having fun outdoors and solving problems with friends. While Spring-a-Ling Surprise lasts a bit longer than a standard episode of Tumble Leaf, the action doesn't slow down, and there's a great payoff at the end. It's a fun, simple celebration of spring for preschoolers, and the vibrant colors usually employed in this stop-motion series are in full bloom here. Plus, the addition of two new bunnies makes it extra special for fans both new and old.
