"Just add Magic" is a great family friendly show that we all enjoyed!
We watched "Just add Magic" as a family tonight, with my two youngest Boy 10 & Girl 12. The first thing the kids said after the first show ended was, "Lets watch the next one!" That's when we realized we had just watched the pilot preview. Right away they went online to see when the next upcoming episodes would be airing. As a parent what I liked the most about this new show, were the values & lessons taught, that the 11 year old female characters in the show look and act their age, and the subject matter was just good, clean old fashion innocent family TV viewing for once! No gore, lust, immodesty or language. I also liked the fact that three tween-agers were actually nice to one another, and everyone else. Little to no cattiness! What there was, was addressed and attitude problems solved. From my 12 yr old daughter; ~ Kept our attention during the whole program ~ Siblings acted like real siblings. ~ The suspense & cliff hangers left you wanting more! 10 year old son; ~ When the kids were kind and generous to others, good things happened, and lessons were learned. ~ It had magic, but fun happy magic, and not scary gory magic or things that would give you nightmares. ~ I liked that kids my age did great cooking, and that their families let them do it by themselves in the kitchen like you let us do.
