Masterpeice. I cried at the Zing Zing Zingbah death scene. The boohball is a brilliant representation of poverty. Deepest thing anyone has ever had the pleasure of enjoying.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10):
Kids say (42):

Boohbah tries to give kids opportunities to participate in what happens onscreen. As in Blue's Clues, off-screen children help control the action. "Active viewing" is a philosophy prominent among today's children's programming. Shows aim to get children to use their brains and bodies rather than just passively watch a show. It's an admirable goal, but the real test is whether or not the show works with your kid.

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.
