There's an appealing combination of adventure and mythology in each short, fast-paced episode. Courage and quick-thinking are central themes in The Mayan Crystal, as well as the bond between sisters and the value of an open mind. The suspenseful adventurous nature of the show will appeal to older listeners while steering clear of graphic violence for younger ones. At times, the storytelling relies more on the characters describing what is happening rather than actually showing it, but The Mayan Crystal stays focused on introducing its audience to glimpses of Mayan folklore and culture while keeping them entertained.

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.
