Cheerful, bright, kindhearted, and scare-free, this 27-minute special is just right for preschool fans of the exclusive-to-Netflix mini-monster series. It would be helpful for new viewers to know that the very young Super Monsters (the children of famous characters like Dracula and the Werewolf) are learning to use their special powers. By day they are ordinary kids; their monster identities only come out at night. It won't take long, however, for the uninitiated to catch up. The little folks are happy, enthusiastic, respectful of one another, and love working as a team. They wear their monster identities gently, always trying to do good. Adults are genial, supportive, and often wise. Super Monsters and The Wish Star gently integrates Hanukah traditions along with the Christmas celebration, and references The Winter Solstice, as well. An enjoyable addition to the Super Monster catalog.

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.
