A show about investment is inherently materialistic to a degree, but no specific brands, etc. are mentioned.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series will have the most appeal for adults familiar with the excitement and angst that comes with buying and renovating a home with the express purpose of reselling it for a profit. But some younger viewers might like its reality-show elements, including suspenseful scenes in which homeowners deal with unforeseen costs and interviews in which they lay their emotions bare.
Is It Any Good?
Property Ladder is entertaining, especially to viewers with an avid interest in home renovation and real estate (which probably doesn't include most kids). It does a good job of showing real estate investments as the risky (if potentially lucrative) proposition they are. Parents can watch with kids and take the opportunity to teach them about budgets and what questions to ask before putting money into a volatile project.
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.
