Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The show has a pretty great conceit -- because there are so many chimps living at the sanctuary, it's kind of like the chimp version of a reality show where chimps from different backgrounds have to learn to live together in the same house. In watching chimps navigate their rigidly-defined social hierarchy, it quickly becomes apparent just how close humans and chimps are to each other. Kids will likely feel seen when a baby chimp tries to get an older chimp to play with her, or when she has to learn to climb up a tree with her snack so other chimps don't take it from her. Kids will enjoy seeing the chimps climb, play with each other, and get into trouble. They also will learn facts about chimps and see how they really are our evolutionary cousins. Kids into animals and science will love watching the chimps' monkey business in this fun series.

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.
