Young Vic paints a friendly picture of a Viking town existence, and he's an appealing ambassador for the life of a chief in the making. Though the conflicts that arise around him usually don't involve him directly at first, he's never one to use his size and youth as an excuse to avoid what he can instead jump in and solve. Vic proves his worth time and again with clever ideas that win over his critics and upend the plans of those who mean him and his community harm.

Vic the Viking rounds the rough edges of traditional Viking lore with silliness, friendship, and a pleasant family structure in Vic's home. This last point is worth emphasizing since male characters tend to outnumber female ones in the stories (not many female plunderers here), but that doesn't mean that the girls blend into the background. In the case of Vic's mother especially, she makes her presence known and takes no guff from the menfolk, whether friend or foe, but she's also kind and nurturing to the men in her life.

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.
