Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (86 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Simply put, this series is the stuff little kids' dreams are made of. Bubbly Bianca and her cuddly bear friend are in the business of making people happy by fulfilling their wishes, and when she's not using her power for others, she and Bob explore all kinds of different places by way of it. Not only does Wishenpoof! appeal to preschoolers' sense of adventure, it also celebrates the joys of having a generous spirit and caring about others.

The show could have stopped there and still garnered fans big and small, but happily it goes the extra mile to make sure that its message sinks in for kids who don't share Bianca's special powers. In these cases, Bianca finds that not even magic can take the place of friendship and loyalty, which prove to be the most powerful forces of all.

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.
