The Legends Family Adventure

 

Is your child spending more time on tech at the moment? The Legends Family Adventure from Google and Parent Zone will help you all become Internet Legends – and have fun along the way!

The Legends Family Adventure – Google and Parent Zone's new animated series – is perfect for families to watch together. It's part of the Be Internet Legends programme — helping children to be safer and more confident online.

When Lumen’s bear goes missing, the whole family must brave Interland to get it back. Along the way, the family learns lessons from the Legends Code — including helpful tips on what to do with cyberbullies, how to spot scams and set strong passwords, as well as important lessons on kindness. And, Lumen discovers they're stronger and braver than they ever thought they could be.
