Comment: At least this girl, I think Lilli in thin pigtails in upcoming season 2 starting on Monday (ep 9). Also others at least in long (rasta) braids.

Also another girl in bib overalls or shortalls (other blog, currently rating 3).

I don’t like at all these thin pigtails. She looks better in regular hair.

Rating 3 for now only.

–Comment: Some girls, most at school in different pigtails and braids. One younger girl at home (young sister of main character) in very long, medium blonde pigtails, at school some older girls mainly in dark pigtails but short. Also at least one redhaired older girl in long pigtails.

Very interesting movie and location, set mainly in 1934. Novel by Michel Jeury. I have to check for more episodes of this series.

Also soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~5.


Update: Kidsongs


I only own one DVD but found some more girls in pigtails in other clips. But in total rather few pigtails scenes.

Pic 1 showing a blonde girl in pink bib overalls in “Mary Had a Little Lamb”. Another pic on my overalls blog. Also a girl in “Baby Animal Songs” and host in Kidsong TV (Western blog).

Pic 2 another blonde girl in a thick braid in “A Day at Camp” (also doing a wheelbarrow excercise).

Unbraided pigtails in “Baby Animal Songs” and Meet the Biggles, partly older girls.

Now also on my shiny shorts blog including girls.

Main entry here rating 6 at (also check out my overalls, blog rating 8)

Comment: At least 9 or 10 yo Melanie Gaffin in dark pigtails and also bib overalls. Also at least one teen girl with a braid (see my overalls blog, rating 5 also there one more pic of Gaffin). Pic from s1e8.

I think she’s rarely shown and often in not braided pigtails and maybe also a ponytail.

Great series.

For pigtails rating ~4.

Comment: Agnieszka Krukówna as 15 yo Janka (Janna in Germany) in medium long, blonde pigtails (pic from ep 7) but mainly in unbraided pigtails, and also other teen girls and probably girls and women. At school at least one in longer, dark pigtails (ep 4). And at least one with a braid. Many wearing dark blue sailor dresses. Also on my sailor suit blog rating 5, also showing Janka in unbraided pigtails. Pic 3 from ep 12?

Nice 1920s setting and lots of historical clothes (and hairstyles). Filmed in 1987. Many supporting actors, especially in ep 4 and 7, but mainly from a distance.

I also have her in Urwisy z Doliny Mlynów (1985) aka Die Kinder vom Mühlental (rating 6). Obviously much fewer pigtails in Janka. I still have to check the 3rd series.

Quite interesting, but few good scenes. I prefer the 1st series.

So rating 5 only.


Lecker Schmecker Wollny


Reality TV. cooking. Large family
Year: 2016-
Year in film: 2017
Country: Germany
Who in pigtails: Loredana ~12
Who in pigtails 2: Sarah-Jane ~17
Available on DVD: no
I own: no, partly TV recordings
Pigtail occurence: low *
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: 12 or 13 yo Loredana in long pigtails (pic 1+2) and older sister (3rd youngest daughter) Sarah-Jane in even longer pigtails in yesterday’s episode 5 (s2e1). Sarah-Jane also playing with the tip of the pigtails, tossing one back. Pigtails of both mainly on the front. Seems to be a modern way of plaiting and almost looking like the girls at Cologne carnival. Pigtails are woven and on the rear of the heads instead of the sides.

This is a spin-off and the girls are rarely shown in pigtails, also in the main series “Die Wollnys”, maybe more often and more girls in earlier episodes. They usually have a bun or a shoulder braid. Also the granddaughter toddler “Mucki” at least in unbraided pigtails.

Also on my bib overalls blog rating 5 and my bedroom blog rating 3.

Unusual food and funny series and family. But obviously all or most plots are written for them and so it’s not the real life.

I like long pigtails, but Loredana is shy of often looking unhappy and Sarah-Jane is too chubby.

Rating 6-7 for the pigtails.

Comment: First I thought, that this is Kate McNeil as main character Louise in short, dark pigtails in s1e9 but it’s another girl (Kate Crosby). Kate McNeil sometimes wore a ponytail. Maybe also other actresses?

Also on my bedroom blog, rating 6, and my shiny shorts blog, rating 9.

Great series, but I prefer the 60s classic.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: Most notably French Yeardley Smith in very long, dark blonde pigtails (and also open hair) And very short hair, cutting her hair off but not as pigtails. Also other women and or (teen) girls. At least Helen Slater in a blonde shoulder braid and open hair with one braided part, also wet.

Interesting movie. I like the 80s.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 7 (including women).

Usually I like long pigtails but somehow not this lady. Pigtails are also thick.

So rating 4-5 only. Needs to be rechecked for overalls scenes and younger girls.

Comment: At least Tiarnie Coupland around 16 or 17 yo in dark, medium length pigtails. Also at least one other, Asian looking teen girl in a dark shoulder braid and pigtails.

Currently running in Germany. But I don’t watch and don’t like this series with older teens.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 3.

Not that bad, rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: One older teen girl in long, blonde pigtails in yesterday’s episode 888. I don’t remember her name, but I don’t like her anyway. Several scenes. Pic from the beginning. Also one Asian teen girl in a long, dark braid.

Rebroadcasting today on Kika on 14.10h.

Better and younger girls in earlier episodes, also women.

Rating 3-4 for this one. Main entry, rating up to 7 at


Also another blonde girl in red or pink bib overalls in today’s new ep 889 (bib overalls blog rating 6, earlier scenes f/m rating up to 9).
