A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Kids will learn some things about living a healthy, active lifestyle, but sometimes the tips can get lost amid the chaotic pace.
The idea behind the series is to inspire lazy, lethargic kids to become active. The show promotes an overall healthy lifestyle.
Positive Role Models
Overall the characters are tolerant of one another and try to get along; the "villain" unsuccessfully tries to tempt the kids into becoming lazy.
Violence & Scariness
Play sword fights, imaginary battles.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the series' premise is to motivate viewers to dance and be acrobatic and active like the main characters. But the brightly colored sets, rubbery puppets, and spooky villain -- combined with the fast-paced jump cuts -- can create an exhausting effect. Characters are encouraged to make healthy choices like exercising, cutting down on snacks, and reading, but the point is sometimes lost in the show's chaotic nature.
Is It Any Good?
Kids will like the acrobatic moves that Sportacus 10 busts out -- flipping throughout his spacecraft, jumping over any hurdle, and dancing with Stephanie. This enthusiasm isn't without its benefits. Kids might try to jump and flip the way Sportacus 10 does. The role modeling is also well-intended, but the show's fantasy style doesn't invite real learning to take place.
Parents might take advantage of the momentum generated by this program by turning off the television and getting active with their kids -- after all, that's what LazyTown is really all about.
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.
