Don has suggestions for child-friendly anime. I can’t express enough gratitude to him for this.
I think I’ll start saving up for Binchou-tan next for my daughter (now 4). She also (somewhat surprisingly) enjoyed Someday’s Dreamers, so I would like to add that to the recommended-for-kids list. Small girls really seem to relate to the whole “magical girl” genre, and my daughter in particular was quite taken with the idea of a magic bracelet/ring that she can use for her “magic power”. Plus she got hooked on the theme music almost as hard as with Sugar.
