Is It Any Good?

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

Blaze and company are the whole package; they're charming characters, great friends, and excellent problem solvers, especially when it comes to situations that involve some science know-how. Race to the Top of the World calls for them to experiment with momentum as they slide down a hill, trajectory as they trade cannon fire with some pirates, and buoyancy as they ride in a hot air balloon. All the while, this grand adventure tests their resolve and their determination to make it to the finish line.

The story's focus on social skills is equally vital to youngsters' development, and kids will find it easy to distinguish between Blaze's style of fair competition and Crusher's more devious one, each of which results in appropriate positive or negative consequences. Even though Crusher never seems to learn a lesson about cheating, youngsters will pick up on how it never works out the way he intends.
