WAYBULOO's mixed-media format blends CGI with live-action characters and is very easy on the senses. Preschoolers will enjoy being transported to this whimsical, unhurried place, complemented by the focus on yoga-inspired moves that are paced slowly enough for little viewers to do them along with the characters. It's a recipe for gentle, soothing watching with an emphasis on self-expression and emotional and physical well-being.

That said, the show isn't without its faults, the most obvious being the characters' chronically infantile language. Though dialogue such as "Cheebies go find others" and "Yojojo happy!" is cute when it comes from the mouths of toddlers, it's grating from animated characters whom your developing preschools are bound to mimic. To add to the linguistic confusion, the Piplings also speak of themselves in the third person rather than in terms of "I" and "me." The bottom line? This series has plenty of positive behavioral models for kids, but the characters' dialogue won't do anything for kids' verbal development.

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.
