The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Space Racers is an animated series that focuses on space exploration and education with the help of NASA. There are some mild pop culture references (like "Spacebook"), and some competitive behavior between characters, but nothing to really worry about. Some stories focus on getting lost or risky moments, all of which end well and teach a lesson.
What's the story?
The animated series SPACE RACERS features a gang of rocket cadets blasting off to learn about the universe. Robyn, Hawk, and Space Race leader Eagle are great friends who love adventure, and take every opportunity to go on missions and explore the solar system. Starling, the littlest rocket, tries to keep up with the big wings. From investigating different planets, to finding their way home after flying into a solar storm, they enjoy every moment discovering what lies beyond Stardust Bay Academy.
Is it any good?
Thanks to some fun storylines and colorful graphics, the engaging series teaches about space and related themes with stories that easily appeal to most preschoolers. There are also lots of teachable moments that focus on values like team work, cooperation, and being safe.
With the help of NASA, Space Racers is also scientifically accurate. Astronauts even make appearances to help explain things, too. But it avoids being too cerebral by offering these explanations throughout each fantastic adventure; kids will definitely learn while enjoying every mission.
