Kids say (1 ):

At an hour long, this special is a double dose of everything kids and parents have come to love about Wallykazam! There's friendship, teamwork, encouragement, forgiveness, and creative problem-solving at play, all at the hands of endearing magical characters of every shape and size. Uncle Steve represents a strong element of mentoring that adds a lot to the mix, and his interactions with Wally remind kids of the value of trying your best, practicing new skills, and following the example of a good role model.

But what really sets Wallykazam! apart from its preschool-series peers is its masterful incorporation of educational content, and The Big Goblin Problem is no exception to that rule. Preschoolers won't even realize all they're learning as they sound out words and identify synonyms with the characters or try to keep track of how many Bobgoblins the double bubbles create. If the key to early learning is making it more fun than work, then there's nobody better than Wally to get kids on board.

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.
