Kate & Mim-Mim: A Christmas Wish Review
*Disclosure-I received Kate & Mim-Mim: A Christmas Wish in exchange for this review, however, all opinions are 100% my own.
Let me start with how much my son and I enjoy Kate & Mim-Mim. When I received the opportunity to review A Christmas Wish, I couldn’t wait to say yes! Once it came in the mail, it lived up to all of my expectations.
This movie comes with three different stories, all following the same winter theme. Don’t judge me, but my son and I watched all three episodes in one day! It was one of our “veg out in front of the TV” days, made possible by Kate and Mim-Mim.
Jayce enjoyed the silliness of Mim-Mim and the other creatures from Mimiloo, while I loved the little lessons built into the episodes. My favorite episode was A Christmas Wish. In this episode, Kate shows what a good friend she is as she sacrifices something special to her to make the letter launcher work. Jayce’s favorite episode was snow bowling. He’s already planning on doing some snow bowling himself once we start getting snow. Hopefully, we have a few more months without it, but Jayce is ready if we get it early this year!
Overall, I would highly recommend watching Kate & Mim-Mim: A Christmas Wish. It’s a great show for the whole family and this particular episode series is perfect for the start of winter.

“A Christmas Wish” (extended adventure)
It’s a stormy Christmas Eve and Kate worries that Dad won’t get home in time to put the star on the Christmas tree. In Mimiloo, Kate tells her friends all about Christmas, and everyone is excited to send a wish to Santa Claus. But when Tack’s letter launcher malfunctions, it looks like Christmas will be ruined!
Kate wants to build a snow fort, but there isn’t enough snow in the yard. In Mimiloo, Kate, and her friends go snow bowling in the Winter Waterfalls. They use snowballs as bowling balls and snowmen for the pins. But when the gang slides down into an ice cave, Kate will have to think creatively to help them escape.
“Chilly the Snowman”
Kate’s sad because her snowman is melting! In Mimiloo, it is a sweltering hot day so Kate, Mim-Mim, and their friends head to the Winter Waterfalls to cool down – only to find that all the ice is melting! To re-freeze the waterfalls, Kate will have to find Chilly the snowman who keeps the Winter Waterfalls cold, snowy, and frozen.
Inspired by a real-life little girl, “Kate & Mim-Mim” follows the fantastical adventures of five-year-old Kate, who, together with her toy rabbit Mim-Mim, travels to the fantasy world of Mimiloo where Mim-Mim comes alive as a larger-than-life playmate. In each story, Kate and Mim-Mim and their group of loveable friends discover exciting new places and set off on adventures, all in the hope of solving a puzzling problem Kate has encountered in the real world.
