Not Educational or Interesting

Other than the 10 seconds the monsters morph, the show is dull. My son watched 2 episodes and forgot all about it. The plots are weak. We were happy to see a little diversity in Episode 1 But even that couldn't hold our interest...

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (27):
Kids say (2):

Preschoolers will love the antics of these newbie monsters, and parents will love the strong examples of self-control, kindness, respect, and determination that are impossible to miss in the stories. Let's face it: Being a kid is hard work. Every day is filled with making and (hopefully) owning up to mistakes, and then attempting to transfer the resulting lessons to future behavior. It's not always a successful endeavor, and just when you've mastered one issue, another one awaits your attention. Not only do the monsters show kids how to navigate this tricky terrain, they also remind kids that the learning process is a challenge they share with them.

Positive messages aside, Super Monsters is an exceedingly delightful show to watch because of its vibrant animation and colorful (both figuratively and literally) characters. It's a gentle way to introduce the concepts of magic and monsters to kids, as the characters' experiences are relatable to viewers' own. Just like preschoolers, these characters are prone to mistakes and subject to a range of emotions, so there's something positive to learn from every story, and it's easy to find a particular episode that explores an issue that hits home with you and your tots on any given day.

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.
