A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
In some episodes, kids are interviewed and praised for doing their part to help their communities, such as a young boy who creates and delivers care packages to his local nursing home. Other segments of the series encourage kids to be kind to others, protect the environment, and encourage creativity.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that In The Nook is a short-form series on Disney Channel that airs during commercial breaks between shows and can also be found on YouTube. Teen and tween hosts share crafting ideas and interview kids across the country who make a difference in their communities. Hosts also dish about the latest episodes of some of their favorite Disney Channel series.
Is It Any Good?
This fun mini-talk show has charming hosts, lighthearted topics, and a lot of bad puns. Hosts and guests of the show record themselves remotely over what seems to be a video call. The lack of interaction and occasional lagging video signal can make for some awkward moments, but doesn't take away from some of the positive messages. Younger kids may enjoy some of the Disney-inspired crafting projects.
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.
