My 5yo and 2yo boys love Charlie & Lola. A lot. The TV is faithful to the excellent books, if anything better. A big factor in buying DVDs for kids is being able to see it many times without wanting to slash your own wrists. This passes that test. Although you may see it through Disney, it is not Disney in style.It uses longer words and imagination, not qualities you associate with Disney. But what makes Charlie & Lola unique is that it's not girly, albeit written by a woman. Practically every book and TV programme has the girls as the sensible smart ones, and the boys being loud, foolish with occasional thuggery. Although Charlie is not portrayed as perfect, he is the sensible one. I'm not obsessed with media images of boys, but this is a good one.
