Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (16):

A truly educational show, Crashbox is a parent's dream: The time your child spends playing these brain-tickling games is anything but wasted. Despite two minor quibbles -- the characters' speech is sometimes hard to understand, and the complete lack of live humans as "teachers" feels a bit odd for some reason -- the lively characters are quite funny and entertaining and make learning a pleasure.

It's even likely that adults watching the show with their children will learn a thing or two (or more) and be amused by the whimsical presentation of the games. Crashbox's unique cyber-backdrop keeps it current, a nice counterbalance to what some may consider a rather dated and eccentric animation style.

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.
