My kids would watch tv all day if I would let them so when I do let them watch tv I want to make sure it’s something that we all can enjoy. Let’s face it. Some cartoons are just downright annoying! Hearing Calliou’s whiny voice is like nails on a chalkboard for me. I was excited to get to review a children’s tv show I had never heard of. When I read it was about a little girl who is a tomboy with a creative imagination I knew this would be just the show for my 8 year old daughter.
I got Missy Mila Twisted Tales Volume 1. Both my 3 year old and 8 year old loved all of the shows on volume 1. They liked it so much that it has become one of the top requested shows they want to watch (Despicable Me 2 is the big competitor in our house right now). They seem to really enjoy what they call her “silly accent” and funny storytelling.
The episodes on volume one include:
- The Hidden Princess
- The Toupouloupou
- Baba Yaga the Witch
- Djoha’s Last Lie
- Piboule and the Bear
- Strabiwolf the Telltale
- The Donkey and the King
- The Houses of the Pig Brothers
- Elvis, Captain Bloody-Nose the Pirate
- The Leprechaun’s Treasure
- Aurel the Mocker
- Pancho Pimento’s Riddle
This is what Organa Kids, the Missy Mila creators have to say about Missy Mila:
“Mila is an 8-year-old quirky, energetic tomboy who loves to tell you traditional story-tales but with her own twist. Kids will be inspired to use their imagination and to become storytellers themselves. Audience participation is triggered by Mila’s direct-to-camera asides all along the episode; her questions and games bring kids right into the story. Join Mila, laugh at the zany dialogs and fresh art in this innovative series which explores the world of classic tales.
Traditional tales are timeless stories that everyone loves to delve back into, generation after generation. Far from old-fashioned clichés, the series “Missy Mila: Twisted Tales” revamps this cultural heritage through the imagination and spontaneity of a present-day little girl. Mila’s stories are peppered with spicy anachronisms and offbeat re-interpretations. So, don’t act surprised if you see a prince applying hair gel before setting out to rescue a princess, unless the latter is a kung-fu champion, that is! As for the dreadful Minotaur, Mila prefers to picture him as the Toupouloupou, a sweetie pie with a sweet tooth. And why do the wolves always have to be depicted as the bad guys? And, in her very personal adaptation of the Three Little Pigs, Mila swaps the awfully shy big bad wolf for an affable bull that… rocks!”

This sounds like something my daughter would have liked.. Why does she have to get older..
That sounds like a great video!! I love that it appeases both younger and older children which is sometimes very difficult!
This sounds like a great show for little girls! I especially like that she is a tomboy this is something I could have related to when I was growing up! Thanks for sharing!
I was a tomboy once and can totally relate! I like this and sounds like the video is something to start with too!
You caught my attention with Cailliu. Sounds like we have a similar household. Thanks for the suggestions. We will be checking them out.
I was also a tomboy. My favorite kids show right now is Dora the Explorer, but i would love to win this , It sound really cute & adventurous
I really love Super Why, and thankfully, so does my son, Ty.
This looks like a really cute show for kids!
Sounds great for the kids:)
Looks like it has pretty good material for kids. I do not really like the current theme of shows today. They no longer foster moral values. Even cartoons have violence. I think Mila’s adventures would be a better option for the younger generation to watch. Thank you for sharing
My sister would totally love this! My son loves Super Why, he gets so excited when the song comes on.
