Admit it, who has played the game Fruit Ninja on their computer, at the arcade or you on your smart device? Come on, I know my family aren’t the only ones because when we frequent our favorite arcades, there has been a line. It is such an addictive game, and to be honest, as I am writing this, I just installed it back on my phone. Of course, I originally took it off because it was a distraction, but I think that I can control myself now.
Fruit Ninja: Frenzy Force is a brand new 13-episode animated series that features fruit-themed characters’ familiar to the fans of the franchise. It will be available on YouTube and the YouTube Kids app for YouTube Red subscribers Friday, May 5, 2017. Fruit Ninja follows the humble beginnings of four Fruit Ninjas who run a juice stand as a front for their secret ninja dojo. The four ninjas names are Seb, Niya, Peng and Ralph. Each have been training to unlock the ancient secrets of Juice-Jitsu.
“Time To Juice Up” My Initial Thoughts
I am all about the visual. If it catches my attention early, it is a winner for me. I love that each character represents a different fruit and the story lines will have children excited. They solve mysteries and fight the “bad guys” as a group, and proves that teamwork is the best way. *Hint* You might want to stick around for Sensi’s Fruit Facts.
My Sons Thoughts
My son did not speak the whole time and I am contemplating playing it a few more times just to see if we get the same result. He LOVED it! He said he was ready for the other episodes.
Is It Really Appropriate for Kids?
Yes, it’s is appropriate for children, however I am not sure if a child under the ages of 5, would “get it”. But it could be a definite winner for kids over the age of 5. From the episodes I witnessed, it uses appropriate language and situations.
Here is a trailer for your viewing pleasure.
