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.

Problem solving and science with trucks

Great show with an easy pace, relatable challenges, and terrific modeling of trial and error. The vehicles are perfect for my truck obsessed kid and they have distinct personalities and are supportive of each other. They are remote controlled cars, trucks, boats, and helicopters. The moving eyes and voice over give them personality. The show really shines with its problem solving (how to get across a lake, how to lift a heavy object etc). Great step by step logical ideas are tested out by the characters until they hit on the solution - try try again! Basic science and physics concepts are embedded here. And finally, as a parent who has never successfully driven a remote control car - the makers have some impressive skills!
