Rain or Shine is the eleventh episode of the first season of Ni Hao, Kai-Lan, and the show's eleventh overall episode.

Kai-Lan and her friends have planned a fun day to play, but their activities are ruined when it starts to rain, which makes Rintoo, Tolee, and Hoho very upset. Kai-Lan must find a way to get her friends to find ways to play in the rain.


The gang has planned to play outside. But just as they start their activities, rain begins pouring down, and Rintoo, Tolee and Hoho are very sad that they can't play with their things. Kai-Lan shows them how much fun you can have in the rain, even if they like playing on sunny days, just by enjoying nature.
