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.

No no no! What happened to my time!

I still remember when the my little pony came out in 1986, I thought it was one of the best things I’ve ever seen! Soon after I had my kids and the new my little pony came out. I didn’t mind so much but I was a little sad that the only one had moved on. I got use to the new my little pony and grew on it but now my little pony next generation is out and my crying. Yes the movie seems to be a very loving show but it saddens me that we all have moved on from the very 1st my little pony! I hope soon that the old one will soon be new trend. This makes me cry on how old I am now knowing that no one will remember the old my little pony but soon forget the new one too. The new generation will start to be the next hit. This is just like Dora the explorer, Thomas the tank Engine and bananas in pyjamas all over again. It’s sad to know that soon our generation will be forgotten.
