Kids say (4 ):

The unusual and sometimes jerky animation style of this preschool series takes some getting used to. It's a bit like a gif that goes on and on (and on), following a giggling and babbling Jake as he visits outer space, goes on a picnic, plays in the snow, and so on. As he smiles and gurgles, Isaac's voice translates Jake's thoughts for viewers and fills in the dialogue while he plays with his friends, lending a certain authenticity in its seeming unscripted nature and joyful interplay between siblings.

Baby Jake is a unique and occasionally charming series, but its unique style likely won't be a hit with every viewer. Those who like it enough to watch will find positive messages that suggest that trying new things and having new experiences can be a lot of fun. The show also reminds kids of the special bond that exists among siblings.
