I’m excited to finally get to share news of a new Netflix show from my friends Jimmy DiResta and John Graziano (along with Pat Lap, Derek Forestier, and Paul Jackman). Called Making Fun, each week, these five master makers are challenged by children to bring crazy kid ideas to life. Apparently (and maybe not surprisingly, given their half-pint taskmasters), lots of farts, dinosaurs, and unicorns seem to be involved. Making Fun will premier on Netflix on March 4th.
Folks on social media were quick to point out that this show concept is alarmingly similar to a YouTube channel called Kids Inventing Stuff
. It is indeed, although the Making Fun
folks say it’s simply a case of parallel thinking. They say they didn’t know about this channel
until after they’d wrapped production. Give Kids Inventing Stuff
some love, too. It’s great!
