Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (8):

By combining the tech-savvy interests of today's tweens with their concerns about the environment, Cake really speaks to its audience. Plus, encouraging kids to re-use ordinary items educates them about consumer waste (learning to use what you already have is a lesson that can't be taught early enough) and gives them a creative outlet.

Overall, Cake offers a fresh, innovative take on modern tween life -- with the added benefit of craft ideas that inspire kids to look at objects with a different perspective. If your tweens want to try out some of the ideas, make sure they're supervised, particularly if tools like glue guns and Exacto knives come into play. But other than that, rest assured that Cake is a great kids' show that has a lot to offer creatively, socially, and environmentally.

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.
