A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Logan Paul Vlogs is the YouTube channel of Logan Paul, brother of fellow YouTube star Jake Paul. The high-energy, super-social Logan Paul posts videos of himself goofing off with friends in his mansion, buying lots of stuff, and speaking to throngs of fans -- known as The Logang -- from Hollywood to Dubai. Logan Paul's dog and his parrot, Maverick (also part of his brand), make frequent appearances, as does his "merch," including T-shirts, shorts, joggers, and more. He and his friends regularly use profanity, which is blocked out by sound effects (but what was said still remains obvious). There's moderate sexual content in some vlogs, and some pranks and mock fights. Logan Paul has received criticism for his extreme and edgy content, including a video (that he later removed from his YouTube channel) where he was seen laughing at the dead body of a suicide victim.
We recommend parent co-viewing of YouTube content for kids under 13. Please note that our reviewers watch between one and two hours of content to determine the general appropriateness of each YouTube channel. Some channels contain more variety within their content than others, and we do our best to capture the overall subject and tone to help parents make the best choice for their family.

What's the story?
LOGAN PAUL VLOGS include some silly stuff (Kong Ran Away), some sexy stuff (Outta My Hair) and lots of self-promotion (The Logang Made History. LOL. Again.). His friends and staff often appear in videos (Meet Our New Head of Security), as do his fancy home, cars, and toys (I Just Bought Me a New House), and sometimes his brother (or his brother's stuff) makes an appearance, as well.
Is it any good?
The self-promotion never stops for this actor and YouTuber whose life slogan is "Bend the Universe." This Paul brother describes himself as a "22-year-old kid in Hollywood making crazy daily vlogs." But Logan's success is a little more planned and commercialized than that phrase may lead kids to believe. This hyper-promoter flashes stuff about his merch brand at the beginning of his vlogs, he yells "I will never not wear Maverick Apparel," in the middle of a vlog, he flashes the website address of his online merch shop that's written on his thigh before he jumps out of a plane on another vlog. Note: While Logan Paul may be less hostile and a slightly better role model for teens than his brother Jake, not all of his content is appropriate, especially for young teens. Some vlogs include pranks, sexual content, mock fistfights, and knife/gunplay that send negative or mixed messages about women, violence, and weapons safety.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the ways Logan Paul promotes his "merch." What does your teen think about Logan talking about his merch, wearing his merch, and showing other people wearing his merch? What do teens think about his practice of selecting viewers who buy his merch to participate in live Facebook chats?

Ask your kid what appeals to him or her about Logan Paul. Why do they tune in to see his daily vlogs? What do they see as his unique talent?
Paul made headlines when he mocked a dead body on a visit to Japan's Aokigahara, also known as "the suicide forest." Does being "edgy" come at a cost? Do you think it's important to show empathy, even when doing pranks and having fun? Why or why not? Why do YouTube celebs go to such extremes to gain attention?
