What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Andy’s Wild Adventures features popular British host Andy Day traveling around the world in an all-terrain flying vehicle to learn about the unique behaviors of different animals in the wild. There’s nothing violent, but there are some moments when the host finds himself having to get away from an animal before he becomes their prey. These moments could potentially be scary for sensitive kids, but overall it’s a great choice for animal-loving preschoolers.

What's the story?

ANDY’S WILD ADVENTURES feature British children’s host Andy Day traveling around the world to see animals do quirky things in the wild. Andy now works as a park keeper at Pickles Animal Park. During his breaks he goes to the workshop, where his friend Kip the Cat (voiced by Harriet Carmichael) is inventing something new. Together they travel on the KipMobile, a park buggy that Kip has converted into an all-terrain flying vehicle. From going to see how elephants in Kenya use dirt and dust to keep cool, to traveling to Yellowstone National park in North America to watch beavers build dams with their teeth, together they show audiences what kinds of interesting things animals do in the wild while learning lots of things along the way. With Kip’s help, Andy’s also able to get smaller in order to to observe animals as closely as possible. Sometimes it’s a little dangerous, but Andy knows when to leave the animals alone and get out of harms way. 

Is it any good?

This entertaining series showcases the unique behaviors of different animals around the world in their natural habitats. With the help of video footage and CGI animation, Andy's able to do things like swim with recently born strawberry dart frog tadpoles and bathe with elephants. Throughout Andy’s Wild Adventures, he shares information about the animals and their survival habits in a way that can be easily understood by young animal lovers.
