Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is the rare instance of a non-pet or child-based animated film. Appliances that are imbued with likable personalities and voices struggle with feelings of abandonment and obsolescence, and decide to set out into the city to find their master, the young boy who used to visit the summer cottage where they've been left. The movie has some funny moments but feels more like a journey film than a comedy, as the friends face and overcome some genuinely disturbing challenges. Appliances are dropped into waterfalls, sucked into quicksand, disarticulated, and chased by a malicious supermagnet at a dump.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.

Violence

More dark and threatening imagery than you would expect. Even though the violence is directed at household appliances, kids may be troubled as the appliances are dropped into waterfalls, sucked into quicksand, disarticulated, and chased by a malicious supermagnet at a dump.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Friends of the appliance genre band together to overcome dark and scary obstacles; good-natured grumbling about one another's faults doesn't get in the way of them sticking together through thick and thin. Nice message too about the value of the tried and true over constantly needing newer, better things.

Consumerism

One scene shows a billboard with the TDK logo; since it's the only placement in the entire movie it does jump out.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
