Is It Any Good?

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

The key to this series is that it promotes positive peer pressure by giving the limelight to kids who've let their big ideas -- combined with smart finances -- take them places. Kids will be inspired by their peers' success and might find their own entrepreneurial wheels turning soon after. The show boasts a textbook's worth of educational material that's bolstered by its relevance to important life skills like managing money, setting and working toward goals, and coping with inevitable setbacks.

Biz Kid$ is a great choice for families to view together -- even parents may learn a thing or two from these financially savvy youngsters. Corny though some of the playful content might seem to the grown-ups, it's nonetheless effective in getting its messages about fiscal responsibility across to kids.

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.
