Dress-up is a game we play, each and every single day. We can be most anything, fairy, doctor, dancer, king.
Chloe's Closet is a preschool edutainment series produced by MoonScoop. It airs on PBS Kids Sprout in the United States and Toon Disney in Canada. The show focuses on 4-year-old Chloe, who has an amazing imagination. Along with her friends and her security blanket, Lovely Carrot, Chloe regularly plays dress-up, using various costumes to go into Chloe's world and have all kinds of adventures, while solving problems or issues they have along the way.The main cast are:
Chloe: A young girl with a big imagination. She's created her own imaginary world that she and her friends regularly use when playing dress-up and having adventures. Chloe has a kind heart and is always up for adventure.
Lovely Carrot: Chloe's security blanket/Imaginary Friend. He's a small yellow blanket, with a toy duck head attached. In Chloe's imaginary world, Lovely Carrot comes to life. He's always trying to help Chloe out and look after her, but he can be a bit of a klutz.
Tara: Tara is Chloe's best friend. Being half a year older than her friends, she considers herself to be older and wiser. Tara can be a bit bossy and usually tries to take charge on adventures. She never quite seems to get that that's Chloe's job, though.
Jet: A boy who often plays with Chloe. He usually tries to turn play time towards more boyish games, but is always there to help her out.
Riley: Another boy who plays with Chloe. Riley tends to have his own way of doing things and it usually works for him. Occasionally Riley can dive into things before getting the full picture and it can lead him into trouble.
Danni: Another of Chloe's friends. Danni is a tomboy who prefers puddle jumping to playing with dolls. She's always up for an adventure, but can be a bit too competitive for her own good at times.
Lily: Lily is a gentle girl, who loves more girly activities. She tends to criticize herself and sometimes needs to be convinced to give new things a try.
Mac: Lily's younger brother. He's still learning to talk, but usually manages to get the point across. Mac looks up to his sister and the two tend to get along fairly well.
Chloe's Closet contains examples of:
Anachronism Stew: Chloe was taught that cave people and dinosaurs didn't live at the same time, but they do in her world.
Ambiguously Brown: Jet, but he pales in comparison to Danni, who has brown skin and hair, black eyes and, supposedly, Scottish heritage.
Bamboo Technology: Vehicles in Chloe's imaginary world tend to be made out of arts and crafts supplies, such as buttons, cardboard boxes, paper towel tubes and paper plates.
Catch Phrase: Chloe is quick to remind people that anything can happen in her world. The kids often say, "Pickle!" when something goes wrong. Though Tara prefers, "Oh, Crumbs!"
Conspicuous CG: A lot of the backgrounds shown while Chloe and her friends are imagining are very obvious CGI. For example, in one episode, Chloe and her friends become firefighters, and basically the whole background is CGI, including their fire truck!
