Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

Jump! highlights how double Dutch jump roping has evolved from a common children's game to an international sporting activity requiring strength, speed, acrobatic coordination, and endurance. It also shows how, in the United States, competitive double Dutch continues to give kids, particularly in urban areas, positive opportunities to learn life lessons in goal setting, teamwork, leadership, and being part of something meaningful.

The competitions are fun to watch and offer some insight into the techniques both jumpers and rope turners must master. But, even though the coaches and parents are mentors, some of the trash talking, family drama, and a few of the jumpers' obnoxious behavior gets to be a bit much. If you can get past the standard reality conflicts, the show offers an interesting look at the unique double Dutch community.

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.
