I heart Charlie and Lola

charlie.lola2I absolutely love Charlie and Lola. The characters started out in books by Lauren Child and became an animated series at some point in time. In their native England, Charlie and Lola are on the BBC, but here in the US they are on Playhouse Disney. Charlie is the older brother and Lola is the younger sister. Charlie narrates and Lola causes the trouble. I don’t know what it is about this show/book that I like so much. It’s funny, but it’s intelligent humor – even for pre-schoolers. The lessons are all very important, but the author doesn’t beat the kids over the head with them. Everything is very subtle. And the artwork is incredible. If you aren’t a regular viewer of Playhouse Disney, you can check out some clips and even a webisode at the official Charlie and Lola website. If you love them as much as we do in this house and you’re interested in some Charlie and Lola swag, the good folks at Pink Milk have lots of really cool stuff — and they will ship outside the UK. They are the only source I’ve been able to find that will ship anything outside of Europe.

This commercial break is over. We now return you to your regular programming….

  1. I’m not familiar with this show, but the Wikipedia page seemed to know that YLE has bought it. So most likely it will start showing here sometimes.

    And hey, if you have trouble getting the stuff, I actually do live in Europe. So if you have something in your mind that you love but can’t get shipped, just tell me and I can put it in the next swap package!

  2. My wife and I, after we got married, got 2 cats from the Humane Society (brother and sister kittens), and we named them Charlie and Lola. Our daughter loves the show 🙂
