My Friend Rabbit models constructive problem solving for young children, ages 4-8. In each episode, the story characters find themselves facing a different dilemma that is drawn from a typical childhood experience. Rabbit and Mouse usually lead us through creative problem solving, which involves tenacity and working in teams. The group may figure out how to make the most of a bad situation, invent toys from everyday objects, solve some of nature's riddles, respect their differences, or take care of others who need a little extra help. The characters specialize in converting a challenge into a social activity filled with optimism, creativity and humor. By showing viewers how the characters work together to come up with possible solutions, and persist with new ideas when one solution fails, the series helps children learn to "think out of the box" and figure out innovative solutions to problems in their everyday lives.

In each episode, the story characters find themselves facing a different dilemma that is drawn from a typical childhood experience. Rabbit and Mouse usually lead us through creative problem solving, which involves tenacity and working in teams. The group may figure out how to make the most of a bad situation, invent toys from everyday objects, solve some of nature's riddles, respect their differences, or take care of others who need a little extra help. The characters specialize in converting a challenge into a social activity filled with optimism, creativity and humor. By showing viewers how the characters work together to come up with possible solutions, and persist with new ideas when one solution fails, the series helps children learn to "think out of the box" and figure out innovative solutions to problems in their everyday lives.
