I like the concept of the PJ Masks, but I have yet to be impressed by the actual product. My kids love it though, so there's that. They are 3 and 5.

Points in its favour:
- gender balance accomplished by having a female villain (I like this a lot)
- Amaya/Owlette wears a colour that you can actually find in the boy's section of the clothing store (not pink or lavender but a nice bright red; I have nothing against pink or purple but I do get tired of every female character in a kids' series having to be saturated in one of those two colours)
- the graphics are very appealing; love the bright red/blue/green colour scheme

So, why don't I love it?
- I get tired of my husband trying to rename Amaya into Olivia because he's annoyed that the boys' character names alliterate but hers doesn't
- the stories feel quite preachy; like 'Daniel Tiger in a superhero costume' level of preachy; except that Daniel Tiger is very clearly a 'teach your kids how to cope with life' series whereas I expect entertainment from a superhero series
- the superhero abilities are kind of lame; they're not weak enough that it could plausibly be just some kids playing dress-up - but they're not a lot better than that; I expect this is due to the target age range (which I clearly am not) - but I enjoy a lot of the books that I read to my kids and these ones are just kind of meh
