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.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Educational Value

Some videos have an educational element to them, as with Evan's adventures with animals of different kinds and his science experiments.


Positive Messages

This production is a family affair, with Evan's sister and parents in on the work either in front of the camera or behind it. It's a fun example of how well family (or group in general) projects of any kind can go when you work together and share ideas. Some episodes are silly, some are educational, some are just for fun.


Positive Role Models

Evan is engaging and a natural in front of the camera, clearly enjoying all of the experiences he shares with his audience. He's also willing to share the spotlight with his sister and parents when they take part in the episodes. It's not a focus of the show, but it's obvious his parents have spent much time and energy helping their son make this show what it is.


Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Episodes that feature toy reviews or time-lapse videos of projects like Lego builds obviously grant much visibility to the items in use.


Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that EvanTube HD is a YouTube channel featuring videos from a young internet star who tries his hand at games, stunts, fad challenges, and reviews of popular toys. The show is a fun pick for families since the content is so squeaky clean and the unscripted dialogue between Evan and his younger sister, Jillian, is so natural. Evan's parents are also in on the gig, producing the videos and sometimes appearing on-screen as well, painting a very rosy picture of family projects gone right. Episodes that center on a toy review or game introduction can entice kids to want the item in question, so if yours are prone to that kind of influence, you may want to be selective in the videos you watch.

Ok for Kids

This channel is fun and safe for kids to watch. Your kids will want everything Evan reviews but all in all it’s innocent.

It’s good for kids, but it’ll put parents and teens to sleep.

Although this cute kid’s content may be full for adults, at least there isn’t any objectionable content. Like, at all. Best destination for toy reviews and whol... Continue reading

Oh my clickbaiting Neptune Greek God.

He makes false videos, very spoiled, and he is underage for YouTube.

What's the story?

EVANTUBE HD is a YouTube channel hosted by a young boy named Evan and often co-hosted by his sister, Jillian. The siblings take part in various trendy challenges, play games, review toys, do science experiments, and produce skits for their audience, sometimes joined on-screen by their parents. The videos began as a fun project for Evan and his dad and have launched the gregarious host to internet fame and a lucrative career.

Is it any good?

These unpredictable family-friendly shorts are mostly unscripted (the mini-movies being the exception) and all kinds of fun to watch. Kids will love programming that's geared toward them from one of their own, and parents will appreciate the positive image Evan and his co-stars present of families collaborating on a project. Evan and his family clearly have almost as much fun making these videos as viewers do watching them.

Evan rose to fame (to the tune of millions of dollars) with his toy and game reviews before branching out into other forms of entertainment for fans. Even beyond the video reviews, many EvanTube HD episodes involve play gadgets and fads like bottle flipping and fidget spinners, or food items like Oreos. In many cases, Evan makes his games and challenges look so fun that your kids may want to try them, so that's something to consider when selecting the episodes you watch as a family.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how the internet makes shows like this one accessible in a way that traditional TV can't. Do your kids watch many web series? How do these shows differ from what they see on TV?

  • Kids: Does this series inspire you to try a viral challenge or new toy after seeing Evan do it? What makes you feel that way?

  • Who are your favorite YouTube stars? How do they reflect positive character traits like creativity, honesty, or perseverance? If you had a web show, what would it be about?
