My boys love the excitement and intrigue of dinosaurs so when a new animated TV show lands on Netflix starring these creatures, we had to tune in!  Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous plays off of the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies but tells a totally new tale as teenagers are at a camp on Isla Nublar when things suddenly go wrong.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Review


There's a lot to love in this new series for kids.  The Jurassic Park franchise obviously has a long history and so it feels familiar and fresh all at the same time.  The 6 teenagers are brought to Isla Nublar from all different walks of life - which means they have a lot to learn about getting along with each other, but their different skill sets serve them well when crisis happens.  There's the right mix of kid appropriate adventure and humor to keep kids engaged throughout the show and the fact that the series is presented in episodes instead of movies will also help kids "chunk" their viewing.  

The show begins with a video game and the computer animation throughout the show almost feels video game-ish to viewers.  Details are well done - from the details of the leaves to the rough skin of the dinosaurs roaming the island.  At 5 and 8, my boys couldn't take their eyes off of the show - definitely recommend for kids to enjoy!
