Great role models for older uptight kids just not toddlers

Its not a really bad show but it does havd its kinks. There is an ongoing relationship between shamish and tracey...THIS IS NOT APPROPRIATE some drugs are taken when tracy invents a coke machine but instead of the soft drink it makes the drug!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Besides being incredibly cute, this animated Australian show also manages to entertain while teaching kids an important lesson: If you use your brain, anything is possible. It's doubtful that McBean's young audience will try to copy her tricks, but parents should be aware that while mixing potions works onscreen, in real life it could prove dangerous. What's more, because this smart series relies on witty dialogue (in addition to fine animation), young kids might not get it.

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.
