A Parent’s Guide to Troom Troom (Youtube)

IMPORTANT: I have not watched every video on this channel, but I have watched several. This article was made to get a general feel of the channel, and probably does not record everything that specifically happens on the channel.

Troom Troom

Type: DIY

Video Types: Troom Troom has videos on how to make all kinds of things as well as do life hacks.

Quality

Acting and Composure: 3½/5 Above Average: To be honest I… don’t know where to begin. The videos have a very peppy narrative describing a setting, characters, and usually a need or occurrence. Then the various objects, pranks, and things done in the videos lead to craft demonstrations. The best way to put what’s going on in the expressions, voice over, and acting is that it is very expressive and excited all the time.

DIY Usefulness and Ease: 3/5 Average: The best thing that can be said about Troom Troom is the variety of things they offer. Whether it’s makeup, edible anything, giant or tiny food, or school supplies that looks like your favorite snack, Troom Troom has it.

Camera and Microphone Quality: 5/5 Excellent: There couldn’t be a better voice and video quality DIY channel if someone tried. Everything is very clear and understandable.

Overall: 4/5 Well Done: While the DIY themselves can be good the life hacks are lacking and the way the DIYs are applied isn’t really the greatest. I really can’t see anyone making edible makeup for a prank, but I could see it being used for a birthday party. The overall problem with Troom Troom is it’s oddness and awkward approach, but perhaps this is what gives it its distinctive charm.

Moral Content

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: ½/5 Brief Suggestive Clothes: Sometimes the shorts on girl’s goes over the knee and some shirts show a little cleavage and shoulders, but usually the clothing is pretty modest. Some beach videos show girls in two piece swimsuits.

There are videos where the “story” have talk about the characters going on dates.

Violence: ½/5 Brief Violence: Occasionally, there will be very light, in-good-fun violence such as pillow fights. A few of the pranks suggested though could be dangerous, such as a candle that lights into a giant fire when lighted.

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 2/5 Brief Cursing: A song in one video has the line “hot damn.”

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 0/5 None

Religious Issues: 0/5 None

Magic: 1/5 Magical Themes: There are a lot of unicorn themed videos, and occasionally ones with fairies and mermaids.

Others: There are videos that show kids how to sneak food into classrooms. There are a few instances of boys wearing chain jewelry. There are Halloween and Barbie themed videos. There is a lot of pop music in the background of videos.

Overall: 2/5 Child Appropriate: Outside of the one song in the one video and the encouragement of sneaking things into classrooms. Outside of this, I would say it’s appropriate for children ten and older, you just may want to keep videos like “14 Weird Ways to Sneak Food Into Class / Back to School Pranks” away from them.
