A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

Kids see the characters solve problems in creative ways using their skills with tools, craft materials, baking supplies, and more.

Positive Messages

The Lalaloopsies are forever discovering new talents and recognizing their friends' gifts, which they pool together in feats of teamwork. Each story gives them an opportunity to solve problems in creative ways, which often creates messes before successes. Friendship and individuality are recurring themes. Characters are predominantly female, but there is one boy in the rag doll cast.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Each Lalaloopsy is special in her (or his) own right, with unique talents and traits that make her a good friend and important part of the community.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

The Lalaloopsy brand includes toys, games, clothing, accessories, and numerous other TV shows and movies.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

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.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how friends find common ground. What difficulties arise in being friends and working with someone who's very different from you? Do the Lalaloopsies ever let their differences interfere with their relationships?

  • What magical aspects of the characters' home do you most like? What would you add if you could?

  • Does seeing your favorite TV or movie characters on the store shelves make you more inclined to want them? Why is it fun to have clothes or accessories with your favorite characters' images on them?
