A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Kids can learn about basic concepts like music, pets, and dental hygiene.
Rob and his friends support each other, working as a team to find answers to their questions.
Positive Role Models
Rob's friend group is kind and they help each other out, and the people (and aliens) they meet on other planets are always informative and willing to share their knowledge.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rob the Robot is an animated preschool series featuring a curious robot and his friends. Each episode revolves around Rob and his crew finding a problem, or mission, that needs solving, and visiting a different planet that will help them figure out what to do. Exploring planets (there's a music planet, a book planet, and even a monkey planet, for example) and learning about the concepts each one has to offer, Rob and his friends come to a solution. It's a sweet, high-energy show that gently teaches simple concepts, problem-solving, and social-emotional lessons.
Is It Any Good?
Space-loving kids will enjoy the adventures of Rob and his friends, and there's a lot of learning potential in each episode. Rob the Robot can be pretty funny, too; on a quest to find the Tooth Fairy, the bots end up meeting the unfortunate Toothpaste Fairy, but learn a bit about dental hygiene in the meantime. Young kids will like the countdown that happens before the crew blasts off to visit a new planet, and while the show is pretty fast-paced, it's still gentle enough that more sensitive preschoolers can handle it.
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.
