Kinderwood is a lovely, kind-hearted show for young kids. Kids will love the cute animal characters and the magical elements of the Kinderwood world. They will also very easily relate to the challenges the Kinderkids face -- things that may seem small to adults but feel very big to preschoolers. Each episode focuses on one main takeaway, like taking things one step at a time when you're learning something new, or that it's nice to give something away to people who need it more than you do. The characters seem like real kids (to the extent that talking animals can, of course), and they don't preach or talk down to their young audience.

Grown-ups will love how the show models building social-emotional skills. The characters are excellent at naming the emotions that all preschoolers feel, like being frustrated when you don't know how to tie a bow or being sad that your holiday celebration won't be how you imagined it. They are great role models that give kids tools to handle their emotions, and parents the language to use when encouraging these skills in their own kids.

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.
