BING - NICKY cover image
Bing - Nicky is bright, fun and filled with wonderful, colorful characters.

Bing is a television series celebrating the noisy, joyful, messy reality of life when you're a preschooler. The stories are short, but full of drama -- everyday micro-dramas that young children and grown-ups will recognize as they learn to share, develop friendships and remember that there is always someone younger than you that might need your help, even when you are a child yourself.

The animated story is easy to follow, especially important for its target audience. The episode tackles issues such as being concerned that another child has your toy, realizing its more fun to help them enjoy the things you do, and that things may go wrong, but that doesn't mean they can't be fixed. The animation is very well done; the characters, backgrounds and visuals are lovely and enjoyable. It is well constructed for a preschool audience with clear and easy to view scenes. The backgrounds of the house interior, the car, and the outdoors are all very detailed and interesting. The background music is pleasant and non-intrusive. There are brightly colored clothes for the characters and a clearly diverse cast. The main characters are child-like characters that have distinct personalities. We easily know which one is younger. The main character, Bing, is very well thought out. The adult characters are positively portrayed and listen to the children, which is good to see. All of the main child characters are easy to understand and watch. There is a recap of this episode (Bings day) at the end explaining, from Bing's point of view, his feelings about what happened. This is a clever ending to the episode.

The message of this episode is about being a friend and how helping others is a nice thing to do.

I give Bing - Nicky 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 2 to 5. By Richard L. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST!
