Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Grandpa In My Pocket is a British preschool series that highlights the bond between a grandparent and his grandchildren. They share a fun secret together and get into adventures along the way. Things sometimes get knocked over, and on occasion there's some mischievous activities, but it's lighthearted and contains positive messages about family.
Is It Any Good?
This live-action British series creatively explores the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren. Grandpa Mason is able to share his exploits with his grandchildren, who are more than willing to assist him during his exploits. His willingness to wreak a little havoc on occasion also creates some fun moments.
The stories are lighthearted, and the overall series, albeit full of British humor, will appeal to a universal preschool audience. But Grandpa In My Pocket is also a celebration of the important role grandparents (or other family elders) can play in children's lives that can be understood across countries and cultures.
