A great show that teaches children valuable lessons

I am actually amazed by how entertaining and heart-warming this series is. Skylanders Academy is based off a video game series about heroes that stop an evil character from taking control over a magical realm called the Skylands. This series literally brings these characters to life in which they band together to form a team of heroes called the Skylanders. This series is filled with positive role models and has great messages such as, teaching children the importance of friendship, being honest, teamwork and not letting your ego get the best of you. Because this series falls in the heroism and action/adventure genre, the boys heavily outnumber the girls, but the boys treat the girls as equals and have strong bonds with them, and the girls are just as important and have contributing roles. There are female engineers, female ninjas and even powerful sorceresses! This series heavily pushes the importance of friendship and teamwork and the characters are very admirable.
