Doral, Florida, April 18, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Kids Central, the new network for kids and their families, is thrilled to receive positive ratings and reviews from Common Sense Media for shows airing on the network.
Kids Central has searched the world for the best programming available and found top notch content like Rastamouse, Franny’s Feet, and Fishtronaut, among others. Common Sense Media, a nonprofit that provides independent, age-based ratings and reviews for movies, TV shows, books, and other media, has reviewed several Kids Central shows and rated them highly on positive messages and role models. Several shows also scored high on educational value. Some highlights of Kids Central’s programming include:
● Franny’s Feet (Common Sense Media rating: 4 out of 5 for Educational value; 5 out of 5 for Positive role models)
○ The show follows the adventures of Franny as she tries on various pairs of shoes and travels to different places in the world.
● Fishtronaut (Common Sense Media rating: 3 out of 5 for Educational value, Positive messages, and Positive role models)
○ The series tells the story of Fishtronaut, a fish in a spacesuit, similar to reverse scuba gear, which allows him to fly and breathe out of water. He is a secret agent who, along with his friends Marina and Zeek, unravels the mysteries occurring in Smiling Trees Park, where elephants, monkeys, and other animals from around the world roam free.
● The Doodlebops (Common Sense Media rating: 3 out of 5 for Educational value)
○ The Doodlebops’ characters are members of a children’s band. The show features a mix of music, dancing, humor and skits that teach social lessons. The show always includes scenes from a concert in front of a preschool audience who actively participate in the singing and dancing.
● Dragon (Common Sense Media rating: 3 out of 5 for Positive messages and Positive role models)

Uki’s world is safe and contained: it is the world of a child awakening to new experiences and sensations that will shape her development and deepen her understanding of the environment. Music is key to the show – simple, catchy melodic jingles that make the show accessible to even the youngest child.
