Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Zerby Derby is a live-action series starring remote-controlled cars designed to teach young kids about problem solving. Being positive and friendship also are themes. On occasion the remote-controlled cars gently bump something or roll over, but there's nothing too rough. Its simple, enthusiastic approach has lots of kid appeal, especially for kids who like toy cars and other vehicles.
Is It Any Good?
This positive and educational kids' series teaches the importance of trying to find solutions to problems big and small. It also demonstrates how working with friends and having a good attitude can make a difference in the ability to resolve whatever obstacle you're faced with.
Unlike a lot of kids' shows, there's no singing or musical numbers (which some may consider a blessing), but the characters' mantra of "Try, try again" is an important takeaway kids can easily remember. This, combined with the simplicity of the series, makes it a great learning tool.
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.
