Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that A StoryBots Space Adventure, an installment of the StoryBots franchise, is an entertaining and educational hybrid animated-live action series featuring some of the StoryBots looking for answers to children's questions about space and space travel. It's colorful and energetic, and offers information in ways that kids will understand, but it might be too fast moving or fact-filled for younger children. The words "shoot" and "poop" are used too. The members of the Inspiration4 mission, a civilian mission being developed by the Space X program, are featured, but no specific information is offered about the program.
Is It Any Good?
The charming and educational 12-minute installment of the StoryBots franchise combines animation and live action to explore facts about space travel. It breaks down information about how rockets work in ways that children (and adults) can understand, while offering colorful and energetic visuals to make the lesson more engaging. The folks from Inspiration4 add to the energy as they enthusiastically answer kids' questions about what it's like to sleep, eat, and use the toilet while in space. The amount of information packed into A StoryBots Space Adventure might be a bit much for smaller children to understand, but it's definitely worth the watch.
