Welcome to Blunderburg where there’s no problem that Chico Bon Bon and his team of engineers—the Fix-It Force—can’t solve. Chico Bon Bon: Monkey With A Tool Belt is a new preschool action-comedy series now streaming on Netflix that is packed with over-the-top engineering adventures. In each episode, with the help of his trusty tool belt, Chico and his friends save the day.

These engaging lessons inspire kids to solve problems creatively through trial and error, just like the Fix-It Force does. Along the way, they will learn science skills and STEM vocabulary.
