A good show for little-littles

Justin Time is a cute show for toddlers and pre-schoolers. The educational value here is pretty high; they will be learning without even realizing they are learning. My 19 month old's interest is held throughout. The show isn't chaotic or over-stimulating. There is, as expected, no violence, sex or inappropriate language. This is completely appropriate for your little one.

This title has:

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

With easy-to-digest lessons about animals and ecosystems, Justin Time holds preschoolers' interest while imparting knowledge. Justin is often bumbling around whatever place he lands, which will also appeal to kids, who can feel like they don't understand the world they live in. The smooth, bouncy computer animation is easy on the eyes, with a color palate that's cool and easy, not as eye-gougingly bright as some cartoons.

It's also very positive that Justin's parents appear in each episode. Unlike some shows where Mom and Dad are puzzlingly absent, leaving the kids to go off on adventures alone, the parents in Justin Time bookend each adventure. It's nice to be appreciated.

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.
