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.
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.
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.
