Absolutly terrible

Pretends to teach but confuses and is so lazy. The whole concept is awful with 2 pointless human children. Horrible show will no longer have on in my house.

Is It Any Good?

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

Building and racing are both totally preschool-friendly, perfect for fans of the Nick Jr. show. Kids don't really have to do anything to complete a race, though they can maneuver their truck for a better outcome. Even if they come in last (or third) place, they'll move on to the next level. The real fun is in designing the tracks, and the learning comes from short explanations of the science behind each feature on the track. Each of the three locations includes several tracks, plus kids can build their own, so there's quite a bit of variety of scenes. But the actual gameplay is pretty much the same throughout.

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.
