LOVE love it! Especially how big brother Charlie deals with little sis Lola in such a loving, positive way.

We also downloaded the theme song from iTunes

I'm such an anglophile, naturally I love it.

But YES, big thumbs up for how Charlie interacts with Lola. Especially during his birthday party -- he is very mad at Lola for taking over, but he takes her to another room to calmly discuss it with her without an audience.

We are six: Me : Dh : Ds1('00) Dd('02) Ds2('05) Ds3('08) and, wow! Soon to be seven, Dd2 due 4/23.

We love Charlie and Lola around here too. Oldest DD brings home the books from the school library for everyone to read.

I love Charlie and Lola! Finally, a children's program that's actively enjoyable for adults.

They are very sweet to each other, and also convinced my daughter to go through a brief but passionate phase of eating many "moon squirters" (i.e., tomatoes).

This one was just on the other day. I said, "what do you think about Lola?" My picky eater dd1 said, "She sounds like a very fussy eater." Later on at bedtime I asked them what Lola did eat and how much you miss out when you don't try new things. We had fun saying TO-mah-toes.

My 4 year old loves it. Helps her get in touch with her English half. I like it too.

I watch Charlie and Lola, and I don't have any children yet

Lu - A ten year plan is forming, here's hoping everything lines up

I'd also like to add that I love that Charlie and Lola share a bedroom. My family thinks I'm nuts, nuts, nuts when I say that If we have another baby and it's a girl, she'll share a room with DS until he approaches his teens. I think that it is completely appropriate for a brother and a sister to share a room. Especially if DS turns out to be a sweetheart big bro, like Charlie!

That is one of my oldest DD's fave shows. For her it is right up there with The Wiggles, Johnny and the Sprites and the Doodlebops! Lol. It is a cute show and I love the English accents!
