Not so long ago, we were drawn into the world of Charmville, where we found 3 adorable Little Charmers-In-Training; Hazel, Poise & Lavender, each one with her own magical powers. These girls bring the meaning of true friendship to life. If you haven't had a chance to watch this fun, sassy, sparkletastic show, aimed towards preschool girls ages 3-5 (although our sons like it too!), you can catch it on Treehouse TV. Through their magical misadventures, the Charmers quickly learn that true friendship, teamwork and self-confidence can overcome whatever mayhem their magic creates. Another great lesson they learn, is that even though they have magical powers they realize they don't have to rely on magic to solve or overcome every problem or difficulty they encounter.
So let's introduce these Charmers:
Firstly, we have Hazel. Hazel is the lead charmer with the most magical power. She's a fearless, curious, pint-size go getter who flies (leaps) before she looks. We can all related to having a little Hazel amongst us, are we right? Her magic wand adds even more sparkle to her big heart and passion for friendship, and don't forget her mysterious cat, Seven.
Then we have Posie. Think Phoebe from friends, but the sweet child version. Posie is a "spellerina" who can come up with spells for any occasion with a harmonious song and dance you'll describe as sweet and quirky. She is accompanied by her magical flute-wand and pet Owl (named Treble). They're a real hoot!
Lastly, but certainly not least we have Lavender. Lavender is a "potionista" in training, and a "fashionista" at heart. Her funky potion bottle wand helps stir up the perfect potions...and outfits too. We can only dream! ;-) Lavender is adored by her friends for her patience, honesty and Flare (her goofy but adorable baby dragon).
These 3 Little Charmers live in a magical land called Charmville, surrounded by fairies, leprechauns, ogres and more.
We loved this show from the minute we were introduced to it. Here's why; there are many shows out there marketed towards pre-school and elementary aged school girls and boys, and many of the characters in those shows just aren't very nice to each other. They're often cruel, judgemental, rude, inappropriately dressed for the age that's watching them, and just all around a bad example.
As Moms, we love the messaging and thoughtfulness, behind each episode of Little Charmers. Teamwork, kindness, learning from mistakes, true friendship and good intentions. These Charmers are learning to put their magical powers to good use, and send positive messages to the children watching the show.
We had a chance to meet the Producers and Creative Artists, behind this wonderful series Co-produced by Spin Master & Nelvana, at the Corus head office, in Toronto. Take a look at the video:
Our little ones have just fallen in love with this wonderful TV show, so we are going to be throwing them a little "Potion (tea) Party" with a magical twist! We can't wait to share all the magical details with you, so stay tuned!
We're going to show you just how easy it is for you to host your own Little Charmers, Potion Party and enter the fantastical, magical, sparkletastic world of Charmville.
