My son is learning

My son, who will be starting kindergarten this fall, loves watching this show. He is fascinated by the subjects and can't wait to tell us what he is learning. We spent a good hour last night talking about the planets. I like how they try and figure things out. My son even tries to guess what they need to do next.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (6 ):

It's hard to miss the show's positive messages about the rewards of curiosity and learning, not to mention the many topics over the course of the episodes. Inspired by Minecraft and created by Joseph Garrett, the creative mind behind YouTube sensation Stampylonghead, Wonder Quest summons the angular cat into a new pixelated town at the behest of Wizard Keen, who's in dire need of a hero to counter the scheming Heinous. Whether Stampy's up to the role remains to be seen, but he's certainly enthusiastic about the job and about each new obstacle that arises.

Slightly less prominent but also very worthwhile themes are examples of teamwork, camaraderie, and determination that see the heroic pair through the challenges they face. What's more, there are social lessons at play in how Keen and Stampy never resort to the kind of vindictiveness that Heinous and his henchmen, Lackey and Flunky, do. Even fleeting mention of how Heinous came to turn evil can prompt discussions about bullying and respect with your kids, so don't miss the chance to build on many of these topics.
