Relationship Focused Show for Tweens

Talking Tom and Friends is a cartoon geared toward upper elementary age kids and tweens. Its dramatic, colorful, and fun. It doesn't has a super deep storyline. If follows the relationship between tom and angela (the main cats). The relationship itself is pretty shallow. Basically, the two main cats kiss, avoid talking about it, and play out the "awkwardness that can come with a romance." One episode is dedicated to Tom trying to figure out the perfect way to ask Angela out on a date. Their relationship is affected by social media, friends, and other things.Relationships are complicated, but this is a cute, kid friendly introduction to that. However are down sides to this show. Ben a dog is shown on a video call with Xenon a human woman with blue hair and says shes his girlfriend. This doesn't model a good dynamic for kids and pops up pretty often. Hank is in a relationship with the TV (actual electronic decive not someone on it). Its a funny show as long as you explain to your kids the contrast between the good relationships and the bad.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (20 ):
Kids say (32 ):

Talking Tom and his cohorts have entertained many a kid by way of interactive apps in which the characters repeat a modification of what users say into their devices. Just as there's little depth to the virtual activity, there's not much below the surface of this series, but that certainly won't be a deterrent for kids who want to watch. Those who do will enjoy seeing Tom and his friends interact, and, with so many personalities, there are plenty of moments that will get them laughing. Also, if your kids haven't used the characters' apps yet, don't be surprised if this encourages them to seek them out.
