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.

Great game for pre-schoolers!!

My daugher really likes this game. I like that she is learning while she is having fun, she likes playing the mini games. She LOVES feeling like she is in the show, helping the charaters solve the problem!
