Great way to expose children to the world around them

Our whole family enjoys this show. The characters are fun and engaging for our 2 year old, and there a level of subversiveness to the humor that my wife and I get a kick out of. It does a great job of showing how to respectfully interact with the world and different cultures, and is a great first step for teaching children how to be a citizen of the world. Plus the songs are always really catchy. It'll sometimes take us an extra 20 minutes to get through an episode with the number of times our 2 year old asks to rewind one of the musical numbers.

Culturally Educational, Entertaining, wierd animation

Most of the negatives about this show are that people just don't like the animation. Style or that the cartoon characters act cartoonish. Like someone else said it's like Rockos modern life. Over all though there is a lot to learn in this show about other cultures . The animation is definitely wierd but it does seem to help keep kids attention. The songs are pretty entertaining to them as well.

There's no end to joyful adventures with this foursome of travel guides at the helm. This engaging series tailors the international travel experience to youngsters' attention spans, presenting the exciting possibilities of exploring new places through the focused lens of a few key points in each destination. As Carmen, Leo, and Andy work on problems like finding musicians to fill in at the circus and selecting a special souvenir for a friend, they become immersed in the cultures, meet new friends, learn about special traditions, and even learn a word or two in the local language of each new place.

Let's Go, Luna! excels at delivering strong educational content without feeling like it's teaching. As the characters -- three of whom hail from different countries themselves – are immersed in the sights and sounds of various cities, kids get a sense of how buildings in Moscow differ from structures in Cairo and how people dress differently for their respective climates, even without the characters pointing out the discrepancies. Carmen's Magic Globe shows kids where in the world each new location is found so they can visualize the destinations' proximity to each other and to where they live. Perhaps most importantly, though, this show's global emphasis encourages tolerance and respect for cultural diversity as modeled by the enthusiastic young travelers.

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.
