What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Furze World Wonders is a maker-themed series that's high energy and kid-friendly. However, it does feature lots of DIY inventions that incorporate pyrotechnics and other potentially dangerous elements. Safety precautions are shown, but viewers of all ages should not create (or use) these builds without the proper supervision of grown-up experts.

What's the story?

FURZE WORLD WONDERS stars former plumber-turned-inventor, stunt man, and world record holder Colin Furze as he helps people build DIY projects. From helping a struggling band build a new stage with amazing speakers and pyrotechnics to helping a BMX rider build a flaming bike and skate park, Furze works with his team to unapologetically create the biggest, most explosive, most over-the-top builds you've ever seen. 

Is it any good?

This energetic, kid-friendly series features Colin Furze figuring out how to create larger-than-life builds for activities like BMX competitions and music concerts. With the help of a team of expert makers, he's able to build and test prototypes in an effort to produce a result that's both functional and impressive. During the process, the people he's building for share what they do and why the build is important to them. 

Unlike in his other YouTube videos, Furze does take safety precautions here and doesn't appear to be risking his or other people's lives. Nonetheless, tweens may still be drawn to Furze World Wonders thanks to his high energy, sense of humor, and edgy inventions. As a result, kids may not realize that what they are watching are practical applications of science and engineering principles to DIY projects. It's more entertaining than educational, but there's still something to be learned from it. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about makers. What exactly is a maker? Do you have to have a background in science or technology to be one? 

  • If you had a chance to appear on Furze World Wonders, what would you want Colin Furze to invent for you? What would it look like? How big would it be? Would it be explosive, too?
