It’s good but I think there is a little too much Australian talk and short eposides are fine for me ! It’s easier to listen to !
# I am 9 ! Ps: I like it definitely deserves 4 or 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Or ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I also like the facts
But can you talk about America # I’m listing right now and I’m a LEGO builder ! # I do not want dogs to be replaced by robots also this is also featured in this movie : isle of dogs 🐶 ok ✅
