Engaging and informative. I love this show!

My 3 year old really likes this show. We have only seen a couple episodes. She goes around singing some of the songs. I love that the episodes are around 5 mins long. Very educational. Some of the concepts may be a little over my daughter’s head, but she gets a lot of it. I really like the fact that there is a mindfulness moment in every episode too.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Each episode of this lovely series combines live action with animation to produce a colorful and engaging nature program from which preschoolers can easily learn. Each mystery requires kids to be curious about the outdoors, and to think critically about what they find. It also encourages them to be gentle and respectful towards these natural environments. But what makes the show truly unique is the effort it makes to teach children how to stop, breathe, relax, and mentally focus on where they are and the wonders around them. Overall, Scout & The Gumboot Kids is a fun and gentle program that offers lots of great lessons about nature, and about living in the moment.

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.
