Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

Bet on Your Baby combines cute baby antics and game show suspense to create some entertaining moments. Most of the fun comes from watching the kids doing their own thing as the parents encourage and/or even beg them to do the things that will help them win. Adding to the fray is Peterman's humor, which is showcased in-between rounds as she spends a little one-on-one time with each of that episode's featured babies.

Much is made about the fact that the children think they are on a spectacular playdate, and that they aren't exposed to anything that is harmful and/or intimidating during the show. However, there is something a little odd about having parents trying to manipulate their children to do something for money, even if it is for a good cause. But if you can get past this, the show offers some funny moments that are mild enough for audiences of all ages.

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.
