“There’s nothing broken that can’t be fixed.” Rusty Rivets is showing preschoolers how to figure things out in a larger than life world. Nickelodeon’s newest series for little ones makes its debut today and there is good reason for youngsters to be thrilled.
The first episode is meant to spark innovation in the field of repair. Rusty is given the task of fixing the Kick-O-Matic 3000 machine after it dies in the middle of a soccer game. The youngster discovers the culprit to the malfunction is a burnt out microchip that must be replaced before the Kick-O-Matic sees any more action on the field. Rusty and his pal, Ruby, head back to the lab to make the necessary changes so that their exciting lives as soccer players can resume.
Based off the DIY culture of Maker Movement, Rusty Rivets seeks to encourage the creativity of preschoolers. Nickelodeon’s efforts to inspire innovation in kids extends beyond the small screen and into the gaming sphere. One Rusty Rivets game called ‘Penguin Runner Rescue’ is quite interesting as it invites kids to use their problem-solving skills to safely transport penguins. Other Rusty Rivets adventures include ‘Building Construction Challenge’ and ‘Underwater Rescue.’
