My whole family loves this show!

My kids love this show. I love this show! Strong female characters that are also super cute and fun to watch. Great lessons in each episode, from teaching grit to working together to building confidence. They cover many interesting environmental stories, dealing with serious topics (pollution, deforestation, habitat loss, etc.) in a way that kids of varied ages can understand and enjoy. I'm thrilled my kids are watching a show with such great messages. They need to make more of these since we've watched all of the eps a million times already!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (16):
Kids say (9):

Character strengths and individual talents take special prominence in this series that celebrates uniqueness even as it shows how differences contribute to a strong team. The Rainbow Rangers may have a common mission in helping others, but that's where their similarities end. Among their ranks are take-charge leaders, soft-spoken caregivers, crafty planners, kind friends, and forward thinkers. No two Rangers are alike, but that never interferes with their friendships or their ability to link arms and save someone or something in need of their help.

In helping others, the Rainbow Rangers also find small ways to use their experiences to help themselves, as well. Often their efforts reveal a soft spot or emotional hurdle for one among their ranks, such as Anna Banana's fear of the dark or Rosie Redd's habit of jumping into a plan without thinking it all the way through. With the gentle encouragement of their friends, the Rangers help each other overcome the kinds of things that might interfere with their rescue missions and their friendships.

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.
