Lily is five-years-old and lives with her Dad in a little hut on the beach. Across the way is Driftwood Bay, the island that Lily can see from her window, and it is here that the characters that she has created from her imagination come to life. Every day the sea washes up a new treasure which sparks Lily's imagination about what might be happening on Driftwood Bay, and so, accompanied by her best friend Gull, the clever seagull, an adventure begins as they go across the way to Driftwood Bay.

Great for really small kids
18 January 2016 | by peramneusSee all my reviews

This is my one-year-old son's favorite show, and I can understand why. It is in fact the only TV-program he is willing to sit still for five minutes and watch. Even as an adult, I can enjoy it (and let's face it: a lot of children's shows are not enjoyable, they are incredibly boring and a gruesome pain to have to endure). I think part of the appeal is that each episode is well written. Part of the beginnings and part of the endings are always similar, taking place in the "real" world. Similar enough for recognition, but not close enough for repetition. Then, the main events takes place in a world of the main character's imagination, using the same locations and same colorful characters. All in all, each episode is something new, but still very familiar. Small children seem to enjoy that a lot. Further it is visually pleasing, the animations have a very distinctive style, and the music fits the visual style and the story very well. I get the impression that the creators of this show really enjoy what they are doing.
