Nice calming show

I like the 25 minute length and the work kids put in for their parents. The hosts do a great job with the kids and engaging kids at home. Sana is a wonderful role model.

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

From zen retreats to a space that sustains organic farming, the upbeat family-focused series shows kids working hard while enjoying the fact that they're doing something for their parents. The hosts and the kids are enthusiastic about their projects, many of which repurpose materials, and which are designed to support ecosystem function. Granted, only brief scenes of the design and build process fit into each 24-minute episode, but it still reveals some clever ways that a backyard can be reinvented into a functional family space. Best of all, Backyard Blowout might inspire other families to think more creatively about their outdoor spaces, too.

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.
