Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This lovely, empathetic series is a true delight. Kids will fall in love with the Wolfboy character and the fantasy world that powers life as we humans know it. Wolfboy is an example of a somewhat rare character in kids' TV -- he's complex, is an extremely emotionally intelligent boy, and has a wild creativity streak that hasn't gotten squashed. Kids who feel different from their peers (i.e. all kids at one point or another) will connect deeply with him. The show also successfully sneaks in teaching social-emotional skills in a way that will resonate with kids, which is commendable for this tween demographic. The whole visual world of the Everything Factory is superb: from the spryte creatures with their wonderfully quirky designs to the richly textured and colored scenery. Kids will want to jump in and live there, and let Wolfboy inspire their own imaginations to run wild.

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.
