Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (3):

This funny, fast-paced series is a breath of fresh air with its pairing of a four-wheeled protagonist and his (gasp!) female counterpart. Layne doesn't start out the story as a car enthusiast by any means, and she's hesitant to acknowledge any connection to VIN in the beginning, but it doesn't take long for the two to develop a rapport that involves Layne feeling protective of him. They make an odd but endearing team as they execute their mission.

Fast Layne boasts a likably multidimensional character in Layne, who begins the story in full control of her orderly and aspirational life but finds that forces beyond her control can cause detours that must be dealt with. With the help of her friends, she adjusts her expectations, thereby opening herself to new experiences that challenge her beliefs and force her to learn important lessons about teamwork. With humor, appealing relationships, and some pretty cool car tricks, this series has a lot to offer kids who watch.

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.
