Sweet, if vapid, animated preschool fare.

I have a child who is 3 and so far every episode we have started ends up having something scary in it that freaks my kid out. He doesn’t know about monsters and I feel angry that shows ever include stuff like that, you’re just introducing it into my kids mind now. I didn’t see much positivity about this show. Maybe for older kids but definitely not young kids.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

There are no striking lessons here and little narrative complexity. The dinosaur characters aren't particularly well delineated, and the human characters are pretty flat. But it's harmless, and if your kids enjoy it, it certainly won't hurt them to watch.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
