Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The machines really look great: Bright, shiny, sympathetic and expressive, sort of like a cross between the Pixar Cars cars and a Muppet (not surprising really, with Henson's hand in this), they're very interesting to watch roll around. That alone will probably be the focus for most of the show's audience; the show's conflicts are just gravy.

There's never any real tension to stress out preschoolers; whenever the younger characters on the show need guidance, an older machine is always at hand to lend a steadying influence. All of this gentleness may bore the pants off parents and older kids but imagining the writers trying to come up with endless transportation and construction metaphors may amuse you.

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.
