Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Colossal Construction shines the spotlight on the largely-unseen field of civil engineering, and makes stars out of people who really deserve praise. These are huge, complex projects, and making them happen is an enormous undertaking. This series is ideal for children going through a bridge or skyscraper phase, or for older kids who never outgrew a fascination with building things, and/or might be considering an engineering career.

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.
