List RulesVote up the best shows appropriate for a ten year old to watch.

Choosing the best TV shows for 10-year-olds to watch - or at least guiding what they watch - can be complicated. They may be totally a tween, but that doesn't mean they're ready for deeper or darker themes. If you’ve been looking for good shows for 10-year-olds, this list of the best television series appropriate for kids who are ten will help find the right balance of fun to watch, age-appropriate and educational shows for 10-year-olds.

A ten-year-old kid may be a tween but they've only just got double digits to their age and aren't necessarily ready to watch shows for teens and older kids. The best shows for ten-year-olds to watch exercise the imagination such as Trollhunters and Adventure Time. The best shows for this age also offer complex stories that give them things to keep thinking and dreaming about or start conversations, like Doctor Who, Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey or The Twilight Zone. Educational shows for 10-year-olds and talent-based reality shows for kids even feature a cast close to their age, thanks to shows like MasterChef Jr. and MythBusters Jr.

Which television shows are the best for 10-year-old kids to watch? Vote up the best shows for 10-year-olds and add any good TV series for 10-year old kids that are missing.
