Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Cute animation, likable characters (Paco the penguin is particularly humorous and original), and funny situations should keep kids engaged. Although there is some stereotyping -- the bad guys are comically Italian -- and an old-fashioned take on women's rights in the workplace is explored, it's all handled cleverly and with a touch of whimsy. It's unusual for a DVD of this type to include two episodes, but the stories blend well. The second part has more cartoon action and characters in peril than the first. Best for kindergarten and primary-grade viewers, it will have appeal for many for older kids, too.

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.
