Amikor meglátja ezt a mesét zokogva remegve rohan oda hozzánk a félelemtől. Semmi figyelmeztetés nincs hogy ez a mese fog érkezni. Kisfiam kért meg rá hogy írjuk a Faranki és frank mese ne legyen többet a Nick junioron.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Sometimes parents just need a short and sweet show to help their kids through a long line or busy waiting room. Frankie and Frank serves up just that with educational 1 to 2 minute shorts that center on a charming relationship between a boy, Frankie, and a silly monster, Frank. Both characters are colorful puppets plopped in front of a no-frills white background, creating a setting that's both soothing and entertaining. In each clip, silly misunderstandings (usually by Frankie) will make preschoolers giggle as they learn pre-reading, pre-math, and important social-emotional skills. All in all, this is a show that parents can feel good about periodically pulling up to share with their little ones.

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.
