Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This family-friendly series shows how interactive puzzle games can lead to some fun times for people of all ages. The kids get to introduce their concepts, and talk about the kind of experience they want their families to have, and viewers get to watch as they work on building and testing each part of the room and design. It's especially amusing when the adult members of their family try to escape. Granted, while there's some brief discussions of what they are doing building, there isn't quite enough time in each roughly 23 minute episode to fully explain how STEM principles are being applied. Nonetheless, Create The Escape offers some clever entertainment, while highlighting the importance of critical thinking and problem solving skills.

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.
