Kids say: Not yet rated

It's the rare competition show that can entertain both parents and their small children. Play-Doh Squished manages the feat while also inspiring a healthy dose of creativity in its younger viewers. That's because it's everyday adults and kids, not experts, who are shown taking part in crazy challenges as well as creating some pretty amazing Play-Doh scenes. The inclusion of mini Play-Doh tutorials throughout the episodes will also have little fingers itching to create. The exaggerated set and colorful creations are a feast for the eyes, Sarah Hyland is delightful as the show's host, and it's nice to see all sorts of people working together to form teams, from friends and neighbors to "mannies" and classmates. Lastly, each episode contains numerous instances of children speaking proudly about their accomplishments alongside adults who encourage kids' input and appreciate their contributions.

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.
