Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (6):

Bananas in Pyjamas is the kind of satisfying show that preschoolers will love, and parents will be relieved to let them watch, knowing they can grab a quick shower without worrying they'll see something awful. Despite the fact that there are no parents in evidence, any "problems" the bananas have are of the fun variety: B1 and B2 hope to move their beds closer to the refrigerator to make getting snacks easier, or they want to take home a fish from the ocean.

Rat may temporarily gum up the works by doing something sneaky, but everything is solved neatly and quickly, no feelings are hurt, and everyone's ready for a good snack and possibly a nap by episode's end.

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.
