Kids say: Not yet rated

This fun, fast-paced series is lively entertainment with multigenerational appeal for curious families. A few of the stories may not be news to some viewers (the culinary origin of the Frisbee is fairly well known, for instance), but in the course of one episode, there are bound to be several that will surprise you.

Wow, I Didn't Know That! changes the way you think about objects and behavior that are part of our daily routines. With a little prompting, this can inspire a desire to learn more about the things your family encounters on a regular basis, as well as interest in experimentation and invention.

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.
