A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Vroomiz is a series for preschoolers and young kids about a group of vehicles who are shaped like animals. There are lots of races, which means many realistic car sounds (and yes, lots of "vrooming"). Female characters are present but very stereotypical (pink, giggly, etc.), and while kids who love cars will enjoy the racing aspect, there are better vehicle-based series out there.

What's the story?
VROOMIZ are a group of animal-shaped vehicles that love racing. The team of friends live in Zippy City, including main character Speeder, who's a leopard/race car, and his buddies Farrah, Jerry, Peachy, and Bungee. Conflicts involve dealing with a bully, jealousy when a new car comes to town, and other troubles, and they are often solved with communication and teamwork. Each episode contains scenes of the vehicles getting outfitted for a race, which involves lots of tools, fresh wheels, and a shine, as well as a race.
Is it any good?
Lots of racing scenes and realistic "vrooming" noises should appease vehicle-obsessed preschoolers, but there are better choices out there for car lovers. The Vroomiz themselves are cute and colorful, and the energetic electric guitar soundtrack is fun, but the dialogue is stilted and some of the characters may be annoying to parents. The female characters all sound like Miss Piggy after she's inhaled helium, especially Farrah the pink deer, who giggles after each word and spends an episode being jealous of another "girl" around the speedway. Character lessons are clear in each episode, which is nice, but they're not always addressed in the most constructive way. Kids who like both vehicles and animals will probably be satisfied with this offering, but with all that's available, it doesn't rise to the top.
