If you haven’t discovered UglyDolls, they’re awesome plush toys that live in the “uglyverse”, where ugly is a good thing meaning unique and special.
Here we travel to the wonderfully different town of Uglyville, where the free-spirited Moxy and her pals celebrate life every day. But when they happen to venture into the big wide world, they confront a desire for conformity and have to fight to fit in, before realising that there’s totally nothing wrong with who they were to begin with. As far as messages go in films for kids, this one’s right up there with the most crucial. People come in all shapes and sizes, and one person’s ugly is another’s beauty. More cynical types may just see UglyDolls as an avenue to flog (cute-as) cuddly toys, but if even one kid gets the right message then job well done.
