Enough with inanimate objects talking.

If kids talk to inanimate objects in real life, it will make them look crazy.

This show was stupid. Why do bath toys come to life? The voices are annoying, Also it doesn't teach anything. I cried whenever this garbage came on. Do not watch this trash.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (4):

There's nothing on the surface that's at all iffy about this high-spirited series, and it's a sure bet that imaginative preschoolers will enjoy the colorful characters and their interplay. But in an age when parents have come to expect a little more from their kids' entertainment, Rubbadubbers falls slightly short, lacking obviously positive messages that really stand out.

The one thing kids will take away from the show is a sense of consequence, which is illustrated in each story as a character learns how his or her dreams would affect the world as he or she knows it. With some encouragement, preschoolers might learn to apply this kind of sequential analyses to their own musings, helping them predict the outcome of choices they face or ideas they have.

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.
