Tracey Lee Smythe,
Right, bear in mind it is aimed at kids, that's why everything is so simple. But the thing is at 18, I like this simplicity. I liked the concept, and very often this show is cute and addictive. The CGI animation is simple, but it is colourful, well done on the whole and effective. The theme song mayn't be to everybody's tastes, but it is nice and memorable for kids to sing along to. The story lines and writing are indeed the epitome of simplicity, and for the better I think; you don't want your children to go "huh, what did he/she say?" which they probably would do if the language was complicated. And the stories did often have some valuable life lessons, when it comes to a kid-oriented show, that is a major plus in my book. The characters aren't bad either, not the most relateable, but they are at least likable and cute, and the voice acting wasn't too bad actually. Overall, very good for kids, adults may not be as impressed, but if the child in question is smiling and laughing you know that's a good sign! 8/10 Bethany Cox
