Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that each episode of this paranormal newsmagazine series includes historical reenactments involving ghosts, witches, and the like, some of which might frighten very young or very sensitive kids.
Is It Any Good?
There's much to like about Mystery Hunters. Mengesha and Broccolini are easy to relate to and do a good job engaging the audience while reporting their stories. The show's vibrant graphics and visual recreations are sure to grab young audiences' attention.
What's perhaps best about the show, though, is that kids come away having leaned something about past and present-day puzzles. Parents should note that since many of the episodes deal with the paranormal -- including the existence of ghosts, witches, and monsters -- very young children might be frightened by the series' reenactments.
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.
