Upbeat and colorful, this YouTube Original is sure to hook viewers of all ages. Jam Van is educational but equally fun, and the roughly 10-minute episodes make for engaging screen time for little ones that parents won't feel guilty about. Parents will also appreciate the life lessons, like "Families come in all shapes and sizes" and "Teamwork makes the dream work," that accompany the exploration of American cities. With wide-ranging celebrities like Lin-Manuel Miranda and Brandi Carlisle, there's music for the whole family to enjoy.

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.
