Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Young kids who are ready for some adventure in their viewing love the Paw Paws, who were originally on TV in the '80s. They work together, they ride flying horses, and, while they can defend themselves fairly well from Dark Paw and the "meanos," they always have their protective totems to fall back on. Few 4- and 5-year-olds would ask for more, and older kids without a lot of TV experience tend like it too, making it a good afternoon compromise for siblings. Some of the Native American imagery hasn't aged that well, but there's no cultural disrespect, either.

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.
