The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that We're Lalaloopsy illustrates important social themes for kids such as friendship, kindness, and appreciating your own uniqueness. The rag doll characters and their darling pets are inspired by a marketing line of toys and other kids' products, so kids' susceptibility to this kind of advertising is something to consider. This charming series is as sweet as it is silly at times, and the characters' adventures show kids that solving problems can be fun when you're working with a team and being creative. With original music rounding out each episode, this lighthearted show is a fun pick for young kids.

What's the story?
WE'RE LALALOOPSY is set in Lalaloopsy Land, a colorful place bursting with the adventures of its rag doll residents: Jewel, Dot, Rosy, Crumbs, Spot, and Ace. Each day presents the Lalaloopsies with challenges and fun, plus the chance to solve a problem through creativity. With new friends to be made in the visitors who stop by, this is one fun place to be.
Is it any good?
They're not entirely new characters to TV, but this Netflix series brings the Lalaloopsies to the screen in new vibrancy and detail, thus magnifying their positive messages about friendship. For kids watching, there's no place more appealing than this curious land with quilted trees and weather that precipitates gumdrops and coconut shavings. It's magical and filled with fun, mishaps, silliness, and engaging music.
The commercial tie-ins aren't to be ignored, particularly if watching We're Lalaloopsy will introduce your kids to a new batch of toys and games to catch their eye on store shelves. But the show's visual appeal is second only to its prominent themes about self-identity, self-esteem, and being a good friend, all excellent reminders for young kids.
