Honest, and Hopefully, Helpful Feedback September 9, 2015
Reviewer: Dianne V. from Bronx, NY United States  
My 5yr. old nephew and I love each episode, I would have preferred for there not to have been a scene where Tobias stands in front of a mirror briefly admiring himself in woman's apparel; we must be careful with what is presented to children as their minds absorb and learn what they hear and see.  My other critique, if it can be thus called, is that he (and for that matter so do I) find the look of the computer animations truly strange.  In fact, the visual strangeness of the computer based cartoons seem to actually put him off a bit, he concentrates much more on the weird way the bible characters look than on the story being told, he is just puzzled by the way they look.  Perhaps in any future projects of the like, the computer based cartoons can be a bit more natural looking.  He definitely likes Friends & Heroes (and so do I), hope to buy series #2 and #3 soon.
