Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Workout Badges is a short and energetic workout series for preschoolers. The series helps children learn a new workout move in each episode, which is 8 minutes or less. The host, Joe Wicks, is joined by two kids and the cast of Hey Duggee as they help viewers earn badges for mastering a skill. Joe offers up fun facts related to the movement he's teaching along the way.
Is It Any Good?
Preschoolers will have fun moving their bodies and learning with Joe Wicks and friends in this engaging series. The Workout Badges features fun and trusted characters from the BBC series Hey Duggee and includes a cast of diverse children. The show doesn't always include real workout moves -- rather quirky body movements instead. While the badges are easy to "earn," kid viewers may be disappointed that they are only imaginary.
