If you and your kids are at all curious about where the stuff you buy comes from, this show is guaranteed to interest you -- and you'll walk away with plenty of fun facts to share with your friends. (For example, who would have thought a factory team could pump out a whopping 60,000 frozen burritos in a single eight-hour shift?) The series is perfectly paced for grade-schoolers' attention spans, since it covers three different products in each 30-minute episode, and the narration is jargon-free and easy for viewers of all ages to understand.

Certain segments will appeal to viewers more than others, depending on your specific interests, but on the whole, Factory Made is worthwhile family entertainment. As a bonus, its focus on factories also shines the spotlight on skilled laborers whose craftsmanship is often overlooked amid the technological marvels of the production line.
