This show's striking animation speaks to its overall feel; it's unlike anything you've seen before but is mesmerizing right from the start. The vibrancy of the colors and detail on and around the characters is exceedingly enjoyable, and its setting in a somewhat futuristic world where plants and animals can talk adds to the mystique. Yes, the strange animal-human hybrid characters are a bit on the geeky side, but they make being so seem surprisingly cool.

DIY is an entertainment experiment that works really well and is destined to win over fans who like their shows a little off-kilter. With adventures that are rooted in STEM concepts and character experiences that emphasize the value of curiosity and the problem-solving process, DIY is a hidden gem among kids' series.
