The perfect age group for this series is preschool but I can easily see children a bit younger or a bit older enjoying this series.
The series is different from anything currently on the air—with its expressive 3D character animation and the rich multi-layered, textured designs and environments—creating a vibrant, magical environment and featuring an amazing anthem in every episode. There are very age appropriate lessons that will be learned in each episode. I adore the innocence and good values of some of the lessons your children will learn with Bianca and her sweet Teddy Bear, Bob. Believe in yourself, help your friends believe in themselves, speaking up to help someone and many more amazing lessons will be learned.
One Birthday, a huge surprise, I made a wish and then closed my eyes. Would you believe my wishes came true. I have wish magic, just like my mom too! Wish, wish, wish, wishenpoof. Making wishes, wishes come true. This tune will be stuck in your head. Its one of the many sweet little songs that are sung.
Overall thoughts of the series:
I love this series. Bianca is just adorable. Bob, her Teddy Bear is just adorable! The lessons learned in each show are sweet and just the right values I want to teach my children. I love the 3D character animation, the vibrant colors, rainbows, mermaids, unicorns and future rock stars.
