A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Themes include problem-solving, accepting differences, friendship, and cooperation.
Yo and Yo have spirited adventures, but also touch on important subjects like inclusiveness, how to deal with change, and learning how to overcome fear to try new things.
Positive Role Models
Yo and Yo are good role models -- siblings who actually enjoy spending time together despite their differences, and who are always eager to explore their world and make new friends.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Yo Yo is a playful animated cartoon about a set of fraternal twins named (surprise, surprise!) Yo and Yo. The stories are short and sweet, and aimed at kids from 3 to 7 years old. Since the twins have very different personalities, learning to cooperate with others is an ongoing focus of the series.
Is It Any Good?
With a lively animation style filled with pops of wild color, and an impish set of kids to follow on all sorts of comical adventures, this series does a great job of presenting situations preschoolers can relate to in a magical setting that will draw them in. Yo Yo may not be groundbreaking entertainment, but the artwork is easy on the eyes and the characters are charming enough, making this a pretty universally appealing choice for younger kiddos.
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.
