Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Animated (literally and figuratively) hosts Wilson and Ditch are goofy gopher brothers who “dig America.” Together, they tool around in a well-worn van seeing different cities and teaching kids about their stops along the way. Well-done webisodes mix real footage of interesting sites (such as the Liberty Bell Center in Philadelphia) with the animated antics of the brothers. The GoBros have distinct personalities and showcase their learning in delightfully different ways. Wilson, the serious eldest brother who loves planning and facts, writes a regular blog, with an entry for each stop in every city. Playful younger brother Ditch creates comic strips that focus on the fun they find in each place. Silly and sometimes slapstick, these colorful characters come across as real siblings, and kids will be so distracted by their gopher guides, they won’t even realize they’re learning about culture, history ,and geography during their fun- and fact-filled trip across America.

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.
