Is It Any Good?

This delightful show's appeal isn't easily assigned to one age group or another, and that's a great thing if you struggle to find something all your kids can enjoy together. Younger kids will like seeing the characters' similarities to (and often more so their differences from) legendary story heroes such as Pinocchio and Humpty Dumpty. Tweens will hone in on the main trio's coming-of-age woes, some of which they might understand firsthand. And parents can rest assured knowing the show's content is a great fit for just about any age.

Teenage Fairytale Dropouts delivers some really admirable messages through three teen characters who are floundering their way through growing up. Sure, it has fun with the fact that Fury's still waiting to "develop" her wings and Jeremiah's small stature is almost comical given his genetic giantism, but ultimately none of these issues puts a dent in the teens' solid self-esteem. What's more, although each story puts the characters in a rebellious situation of some kind (borrowing the family's golden goose without permission or misusing magic, for instance), there's always an obvious consequence and some positive lesson to be learned from the experience.

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.
