Kids say: Not yet rated

This colorful and lively series is designed to introduce young viewers to basic science and engineering principles while encouraging them to go outdoors and have some fun. Each 11-minute installment features the siblings engaging in activities like fishing, zip-lining, and riding tricycles, all of which form part of a larger adventure full of exploration and discovery. They also encourage imaginative and creative thinking and building in order to problem-solve. Adding to the show are the cultural Maori references they occasionally offer throughout the process. Ultimately, Darwin & Newts offers an entertaining way of inspiring kids to spend some time offscreen finding other things to do.

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.
