Every child will see him/herself in these characters. Peyton, Connor and Meg share their daily trials and triumphs as they face the following together: bullies-both cyberspace and in your faces-thievery, learning difficulties, family conflicts, adversity in and out of the classroom, homelessness, hidden agendas in places as small as the schoolyard to their favorite restaurant and as large as the town itself.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. For young people today, new information is generally no more than a mouse-click away. Knowledge is readily there for the taking if kids simply know how to appropriately access it and effectively make use of it. In the context, many of the most useful and important things that youngsters can learn center on discovery, analysis and problem-solving - how do kids get the "right" information and make proper use of it. What questions should be asked? How does one assess veracity? How does one weigh alternatives? How are decisions best arrived at? How does one decide when aims can be accomplished independently, and if help is needed, how does one go about enlisting support? Above all, how can goals be achieved ethically and with regard to the greater good. In an enticing new world filled with excitement, mystery and danger, "Magi Nation" addresses these vital learning goals. Tony and Edyn along with their human and decidedly non-human colleagues model their successful, and sometimes less that successful, attempts to analyze difficult situations, set appropriate goals, and creatively seek solutions to the dire dilemmas in which they find themselves. In the course of a series of intriguing codes, riddles and other puzzles that Tony and Edyn are presented with along the way, viewers are furthermore given the engaging opportunity to not only observe others go through the problem solving cycle, but to make use of their unique knowledge base and burgeoning problem solving skills to address conundrums on their own.
