Great for preschool to first grade

In each episode they discuss a topic and how it relates directly to the children's lives, have a craft idea with simple and often recycled supplies, sing a song based on the topic and act out a play! It's educational but also fun! With some "out of the box" ideas!

Fun for all ages

Tony and Vivian take care of the kids in their neighborhood. They sing, make crafts, and use their imaginations. This is a very positive show and engaging, short episodes for all ages. On Disney+ and highly recommended!

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

There are plenty of opportunities here for kids to play along and be creative -- though kids will certainly need supervision and help finding materials during the "craft time" segment. Parents might also find Tony and Vivian's over-the-top bubbliness a little too much to handle.

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.
