Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (16 ):

Compared to other similar TV shows for preschoolers, 64 Zoo Lane doesn't have an obvious educational curriculum. But the colorful, sometimes-silly, picture-book-style tales are lessons all the same -- they emphasize social and emotional development. Although little mention is made of real animal behavior, the series does a nice job of featuring exotic animals from all over the world, including some that are endangered.

While definitely endearing at times, 64 Zoo Lane doesn't make a big impression. Younger children may enjoy the many bedtime tales told by Lucy's zoo friends, but there's no big draw for older kids or their parents. Watching stories before bed or naptime is a nice idea, but reading to your child beforehand is even better.
