This colorful show follows a pair of charming balloon donkeys and their friends as they actively problem solve. Pip and Streak are very aware of their surroundings and are curious about the things going on around them. As a result, they are constantly raising questions about things happening around the barnyard that they don't understand. But rather than simply relying on others to explain things to them, they observe, collect information, and use some critical thinking skills to find some answers on their own. Balloon Barnyard's 7-minute installments are short enough to keep preschoolers' attention spans long enough to show them that it's ok to ask questions about the world around them, and that it's possible to figure a few things out on their own.

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.
