4'9 for adults. OK for kids & teens.

It is a series that start being for kids although in the last seasons as the audience grows the target become more teen. They resolve the conflicts talking even after being chased. There is no violence on the first seasons although on the last ones as I said a little blood is shown. Almost unbearable for adults I think it is more suited for kids from 10+.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
age 9+

Good production values but poor role models.

This show is fairly clean with little to no violence, sex or bad language, but I find some of the characters' behaviour frustrating at times. Like all teenagers, they make mistakes, but unfortunately don't always seem to learn from them.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7):
Kids say (34):

WOLFBLOOD is like a light version of Twilight; it has mythical creatures whose heightened humanity separates themselves from their full-blown monster cousins; an unexpected friendship born of sharing a secret; and constant drama surrounding the protection of that secret. Contrary to many popular monster dramas, though, this one is light on violence and only mildly startling in parts, so it's a contender for families looking to break into the genre slowly. That said, kids may still be scared at transformation scenes and at the concept of creatures of the dark in general, so consider your own kids' sensitivity before plugging into this one.

For older tweens, though, Wolfblood explores social issues like friendship, honesty, and fitting into a peer group. Even though its focus is on two pretty extreme cases of teens feeling like outsiders, their emotional journeys may still have some themes that you and your tweens can discuss with relation to their lives.
