Great Show!

This is an excellent show for kids. Cute characters and it teaches excellent lessons. My two kids loved it and did not want to stop watching.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (7 ):

This colorful superhero series, which originates from China, features a squad of deer that are sweet and friendly, and unafraid of using their power. Each member of the squad, along with Sir Steel, represent one of the five Wu Xing elements (metal, sun, water, earth, and wood), making the idea of balance both important and necessary. These cultural nuances also underscores the fact that the problems we face are temporary, and that peaceful living can be restored after we figure out how to solve them.

The show offers lots of small lessons throughout each episode that young children can easily grasp. This includes things like the importance of wearing sun block, the value of practice, and the importance of being willing to help someone in need, even if you're having a bad moment when they ask for it. These messages are reinforced in different ways throughout each installment. As a result, kids who tune in to watch these wholesome and committed superheroes will have fun while learning some solid life lessons.

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.
