Top Ten Characters who can make a difference in the lives of children.

A list of the top ten (in my opinion) lovable characters from various franchises that are capable of making a positive difference in the lives of young children in this day and age.

1

Super Mario

Super Mario

A sweet-natured Italian plumber from Brooklyn, he is the hero of the Mushroom Kingdom and of many people's childhoods. He is tough and tenderhearted at the same time, he never gives up, he's always there when Princess Peach needs him. He is the international champion of video games and the reason I've just become a player of them myself.

2

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

A kind, wise, and loving intergalactic botanist. He has the cuteness of a puppy, the curiosity of a little boy, the wisdom of a billion years old, and all of the qualities desired in a best friend. He can also make a difference in the lives of young people, on and off screen.

3

Dobby

Dobby

Loopy, loving, lovable, he is Harry Potter's unofficial house elf and ever loyal friend and he's willing to follow his heart before any rules even if it causes some well-meaning meddling into the business of other's lives but just because he cares so much.

4

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake

She is a girl as sweet as the cake she is named for is. I love both the original and new incarnations of her show, though the original one is the one I hold dearest to my heart for its universal humor, charm, well-crafted messages to live by, and how Strawberry grows and develops a little more with each episode in a good way while staying the sweet, smart, and loving strawberry girl leader of the berry kids bunch.

5

Madeline

Madeline

A very small French girl with a very big heart. She is an excellent role model for boys and girls alike all around the world for her manners, love, courage, and charisma.

6

Paddington

Paddington

A kind and polite bear from Peru whose way of life is helping others, getting out of bad situations, and eating marmalade sandwiches.

7

Mumfie

Mumfie

The world's most special little elephant of all. His not-so-well-known series delivers very strong and positive messages about life, love, and learning.

8

Tigger

Tigger

The most playful, fun loving, zestful for life, not to mention bouncy tiger of all time. And as he says he is the only one of his kind, which makes him all the more special and endearing.

9

Petrie

Petrie

My favorite dinosaur from The Land Before Time series. In the beginning, he didn't know how to fly and was too afraid to learn how, but in the end, he achieved what he wanted to by just believing in himself. Which is a message that I and just about anyone can benefit from.

10

Mr. H.M. Wogglebug T.E.

Mr. H.M. Wogglebug T.E.

The biggest, smartest, and nicest of all insects in the world. He is a true optimist; he always tries to see the good in everyone and to look on the bright side. You can always count on him when the chips are down and turn to him for good advice. He is a gentleman and a philosopher and to learn more about him go here.
