Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

Budding DIYers will like this sweet show and the pint-size Martha Stewarts at its helm. Not only are the kid-appropriate projects easy to copy at home (with some grown-up supervision and help), but Telmo and Tula's lively conversations throughout the creative process are a treat to take in as well. Kids can relate to the things they talk about, and parents will find familiarity in their easily distractible natures.

Using Telmo and Tula's projects as a guide is a great way to enjoy some hands-on productive time with your kids. In those cases that call for exactness, such as ingredient measurement, it's also an opportunity to show kids some real-world applications of basic math skills.

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.
