This sweet brother-and-sister team has a lot to teach preschoolers about social skills and relating to other people, and siblings in particular. Their amicable relationship shows kids that it is possible to get along with brothers and sisters (always an important lesson), but it's their willingness to confront and fix their mistakes that's even more notable. While viewers don't have the luxury of actually rewinding time like Kit and Kate do, the concept is one that families could adapt to situations that arise, working with kids to identify the problem and consider constructive solutions before their own version of a do-over.

It's always refreshing when a series puts a unique spin on the typical parent-child dynamic, and Kit and Kate does so by casting the kitties' mother and father as the "mysterious stranger" who drops in at an opportune time to help the kids sort out their troubles. Rather than making the grown-up the automatic authority figure in the scene, this keeps the focus on the siblings and their age-appropriate resolution process.

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.
