Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Wonder Pets! is a very kid-friendly show about being part of a team, gaining confidence, and using responsive communication (the original musical compositions feature communication through song, like a mini-opera). It will help preschoolers and kindergartners learn more about working cooperatively with others.
Is It Any Good?
Even though Linny, Ming-Ming, and Tuck are animals who sing opera and fly in a toy boat, they're very relatable for young viewers. First off, thanks to the preschoolers who provide their voices, they sound like real kids. Also, by using photo-puppetry, the animators manipulated photographs of animals to give the characters realistic visuals.
More precocious preschoolers and some kindergartners may find the fuzzy softness of these three pets, and the show in general, too young for their taste. Too bad, because The Wonder Pets!, which combines adventure, an exemplary model of teamwork in action, and interesting information about different animals in our world, is a brilliant addition to the world of children's television.
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.
