Great educational show that's fun for the whole family.

My kids were getting bored with watching their umpteenth episode repeats of "Zoboomafoo." So I checked out some other shows and found this was the best new alternative for both my kids. They love it!

Eight-year-old Bindi proves she's more than ready to carry on the family tradition of mixing wildlife education with fan-pleasing entertainment. This engaging, fast-paced series is the first starring the daughter of the late Steve Irwin and his animal-activist wife, Terri. Her passion for critters of all shapes and sizes -- from tiny geckos to brawny gorillas -- practically oozes from her pores, and viewers are easily swept up in the excitement.

The need for conservation underscores every aspect of Bindi: The Jungle Girl, and it's all delivered in a kid-friendly way by an adorably spunky star that young viewers can relate to. Families will find lots to love here. Just take this caveat to heart: After watching Bindi snuggle with her housemates, be ready with ample arguments against your kids having their own open-air homes and critter friends.
