Leo the Lion is a cute, fun and educational show that is sure to please young viewers. It involves a goal, challenges and fun messages along the way. The characters are distinct and adorable, with the story being completely kid-friendly for the younger set.

The story follows Leo the Lion and other animal friends as they set off on a trip to a treasure island. However, along the way, there are a couple of challenges. These lead to an interesting resolution that involves the characters learning a lesson.

The show is very cute, fun and has a predictable ending. The animation is very well done, with lots of definition and brilliant colors. The perspective and angles are very good. The backgrounds are well selected with details such as sailing accessories matching the story and characters perfectly. It's creative and very well chosen. The background music is unremarkable, a bit tedious, and very predictable. The voice talent works, although the dialogue is in Russian, so, I relied on reading the subtitles rather than listening to the voice talent. It has some educational value; for example, I learned that packs of dolphins can scare off certain sharks. There are some other interesting facts related to sea animals. My favorite part is the animation, which is cute, colorful and pretty realistic. The director is Andrey Arutiunov, who also directed Phantoms of the Sea in 2019.

The message is to know that valuables and treasure aren't always gold or riches.

I give this 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4 to 7. It's fun, entertaining and educational. Reviewed by Kyla C., KIDS FIRST!
