Is It Any Good?

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

With a unique mix of viral videos, video illusions, and good old-fashioned magic, this is a show unlike any other. Though quick transitions from clip to clip can feel chaotic, Eye Wonder will captivate young viewers as they'll continue to wonder how each trick is done. More than just entertainment, though, the series may also serve as serious inspiration for budding filmmakers (and maybe even a couple magicians-in-the-making too). The "How Did They Do That" segments take some of the coolest tricks and break them down step-by-step so that viewers can try to recreate them at home. As with any show featuring a montage of internet videos, parents should be aware of the potentially addictive nature of the series and may want to talk to kids about what happens in their brains when they watch a lot of short clips back to back. Instead of turning this one on and walking away, parents will get the most benefit from allowing only an episode or two at a time and then asking kids to either get creative using what they've learned or to move on to an activity that doesn't involve screen time.

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.
