For all ages

This show is nice for parents as well. It's a decent length episode, cliff hangers, and interesting characters. My son is 6 and watches it, probably a bit on the young side. I would say age 8 and up. The episode where one of the knights dies out of the blue was a bit upsetting. He comes back in the following episode, but how can the kids know that.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This visually appealing series holds its own among the bevy of Lego productions, delivering action, adventure, and a lot of well-placed humor, but it doesn't break any new ground. The knights are a spunky group, and the mix of their very different personalities creates problems in some cases and good examples of teamwork and cooperation in others. It's also notable that the lone female character of any count is Macy, who'd rather be a down-and-dirty knight than a pampered princess. Clearly there's a strong undercurrent of girl power at play within this male-dominated story, and that's always a good thing.

Nexo Knights is entertaining enough that it can stand independent of its commercial ties, but, as with every other Lego presentation, it's important to consider your kids' susceptibility to this kind of subversive advertising before you let them watch.
