People get so offended I hat this generation for once let a child have fun it’s a good show it teaches them to make stuff and ask for help

I love this show

Oso helps teach problem solving skills to young children. Parents are so quick to step in and solve problems for them, that they don't learn this skill. When they get to school and have to face any problems, they over react and get frustrated instead of just thinking on their own. The "3 easy steps" helps them breaks down the task that needs to be done if they are overwhelmed. What adults doesn't need that, too? Lol

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (20 ):
Kids say (24 ):

Oso is a welcome hero for every kid who's ever envisioned her cuddly teddy bear as a living, breathing best friend. He's the consummate champion for the kids he helps, and preschoolers will relate to the characters' troubles and benefit from seeing how they and Oso follow simple steps to fix them.

Special Agent Oso's interactive format encourages kids to think independently of the characters and try to solve problems on their own, and the educational content ensures that they'll pick up important preschool skills along the way.
