Awesome Show!

Common Sense, why did you give this the same rating as Sunny Day? This is WAY BETTER. I might be a little biased as I'm an American Girl collector, but this show is EPIC. The plots are simple and sweet, the characters are amazing, and Common Sense is wrong that it's stereotypical! They only watched ONE episode, and said episode is the ONLY time they are a bit stereotypical. WATCH IT!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Absolutely beautiful 2D animation is the high point in this outing: The show has real eye-appeal: pink trees, winsome pointed chins, giant flowers in Easter egg hues. The friends' adventures are fun to watch, too: What young girl (or boy, for that matter) doesn't want to hang out with a group of best friends, tromping around the woods looking for fairies and rescuing baby animals? It's pleasant and a mellow option compared with more frantic, fast-paced shows.

The show can be a mixed bag; sometimes the girls act in stereotypical ways -- for example, when Willa (Lily Sanfelippo) picks up a worm to feed a bird, the girls fall about shrieking: "Double yuck!" "Bleah!" But they also appear to notice Willa's fearlessness, and the way they work together to gently solve problems is something young viewers can learn from.

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.
