Teaches kids how to talk

This show is awesome. Not only is it cute and entertaining, it actually teaches kids how to say certain words. Each episode teaches the viewer to say a particular word. That is educational value right there. Yakka Dee is definitely one of my recommendations if you ask me. Definitely a must see.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This deceptively simple series might seem silly to older kids or some parents, but it's an excellent learning tool, especially for kids who might have difficulty verbalizing or processing words. Dee is enthusiastic and the adorable, diverse group of real-life kids are fun to watch as they say the episode's word in their own voices. Using rhyme and repetition, Yakka Dee makes it very clear what each word means and how it can be used. The show also subtly shows kids that every voice is valid and that it's okay to need a little extra help sometimes.

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.
