Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The Odo and Doodle characters are highly adorable, and young kids will strongly identify with their everyday preschool problems. Odo's stories are easy to understand and use straightforward humor that will make little kids giggle. Grown-ups will appreciate these short (7-minute) episodes and can feel good about kids not encountering any iffy content. One drawback to Odo is that it doesn't go the extra mile to make its social-emotional lessons clear for kids. The lessons are definitely there, but they are not presented very explicitly and they are not repeated to help the content sink in. It's definitely a missed opportunity in an otherwise very sweet show for young kids.

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.
