Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

My granddaughter enjoys Dave and Ava. I have this question. Why does the brown skin characters have to be monkeys? Why aren't they just represented as people? I beleive first impressions are important. I am not a monkey and neither are her parents. If you want to use monkeys, please don't dress them up like people. Thank you!
