Calling all animal rescuers.

Great for siblings to watch together. Pre schoolers and reception kids love it. Expect lots of animal rescue games after watching. Just over 20 minutes an episode.

I know who to sue if my kids are attacked by a wild animal

This show does have some educational aspects, such as helping others, problem solving, etc. However Diego does wonder off on his own, or at times with his cousin, of approximately the same age, without adult supervision. Also in some episodes some of the animals he helps are dangerous. This show has Diego playing with a jaguar on a regular basis, which while I can understand a trained jaguar, a young child may not realize the difference. None of the larger wild animals that are featured on the show would hesitate to eat a small child that approaches them, be careful of what your children are learning from this show, some of the themes could result in death if copied in real life.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7 ):
Kids say (19 ):

By watching Go, Diego, Go, preschoolers learn more about the Latin world while becoming acquainted with a curious kid who never says no to an animal in need -- and the show's cultural component can't be underemphasized. Colorful visuals of the rainforest along with snappy Latin American music add to the flavor and richness of Diego's world. Diego speaks Spanish to his sister, friends, and you, the viewer. Also, the actors lending their voices are all Latin, including Rose Perez, the voice of Click.
