Perfect for tinies

I have two kids, one and three. It has occasional "violence," but that mostly consists of one dino roaring at another. No blood or even and actual injuries. As others have mentioned, it has little educational value, but it has great social messages. Everything is focused on being nice to friends, giving things, sharing, not bragging too much, etc. It's PERFECT for younger kids who you want to teach these social skills, though if you child is a bit older it may not be as great as other shows more focused on education. That said, it has a good message in every episode and you can feel safe with your kids watching it.

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (3 ):

This engaging series introduces young viewers to a new cast of dinosaur characters whose adventures thoroughly entertain. Gigantosaurus does a great job incorporating personality characteristics that will resonate with kids, from Rocky's undaunted courage in new challenges to Bill's cautiousness in the same. The mix of personalities remind kids that we don't need to be exactly like each other to be friends, and that there's always a lot we can learn from those around us.

Though not a purposefully intimidating presence, Giganto's size relative to the diminutive dino tots and the many near-misses between his oversized feet and their small bodies may be concerning to very young kids. What's more, the fact that he does not talk while all the other characters do adds to the mystery surrounding him. That said, this likable series promises to thrill young dinosaur enthusiasts, and its visual appeal and sweet characters make it a tolerable watch for parents as well.
