Containing six (6) lovely, and just perfect for young children episodes from the all-new series, 'Care Bears & Cousins: BFFs - Volume 2' isn't exactly what I would call "groundbreaking" (or anything close), but what is does possess is a simple sweetness.
Nice and lovely in all the right places, and a little bit of fun to watch also, of course, your young kids will love it - and you parents may find some enjoyment while watching with them also. What do I think of it? I think it is a nice show that kids and their parents can easily enjoy together and that's all these are really created to be anyway. So, job done. Job well done.
The CGI is probably the thing that could turn people off, but once you get past that you'll find some enjoyment in this show. The characters are rather one-dimensional, but they're entertaining enough with their quirks.
The writing is also quite okay, and there are some jokes that will give you some giggles know and then.
The voice acting is good, and actually feels like the actors/actresses are putting in some effort. Music, well, sorry, but not much to say about it, only that it works for the show as all. So overall, this series is a great watch for kids, as well as adults.
The six (6) endearing episodes included are: "Take Heart", "Return to Tender", "The Bright Stuff", "The Share Shack", "Belly Badgered" and "Wonder's Heart" If you have kids, then you should most certainly cheek out this delightful Care Bear series.
