The characters are cute and sassy. The music is fun and the stories are entertaining. They feel like the types of adventures that an imaginative child might come up with while playing with their Littlest Pet Shop toys.
The DVD is probably best for elementary school age kids. Preschoolers will still enjoy it, but the episodes are complex enough that older kids will enjoy the stories and the humor. The show is good from an entertainment standpoint and there are also some good life lessons to be learned about character and friendship.
