Jenny getting a wedgie

I love the animation, adventures, and the characters, I hope they make a season 3 though
age 6+

A fun show for kids and adults alike.

This is a great show. The characters are fun, and the silly adventures they get up to are sure to entertain. Roi is an eternal optimist, Guava is a worry-wort and Jenny is gung-ho for adventure. It's even pretty funny for adults. It doesn't talk down to kids and isn't full of dumb or gross-out humor. Worth checking out!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This animated adventure series is refreshingly focused on confident, kind characters and pleasingly devoid of the usual drawbacks of most cartoons. Unlike many of its counterparts, The Guava Juice Show doesn't save its lessons for the last few minutes; instead it serves up themes of teamwork, perseverance, and kindness throughout its episodes. Humor is used throughout the show to keep engagement levels high and tensions low. The pace is fast so episodes do lack the type of singular central lesson that's easiest for younger viewers to grasp. The series is also threaded with subliminal plugs for the creator's YouTube channel via the characters repeated participation in challenges (e.g., the ice bucket challenge, a dance challenge, the hottest pepper challenge). Overall, though, this is a show parents will appreciate for its enduring positivity as well as its appeal to siblings of various ages.
