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.

One of the best modern shows ever

For something made after the mid 2000s, it is extremely creative and fun. Alma is realistic and definitely not one-dimensional or pointless. She is a good role model because she takes time to think what she did and the fact her family is Hispanic is not only for diversity points, but she is also her own person aside from that. We definitely need more people like Alma in our world. Also, the background music is some of the most refreshing and lively stuff I have ever heard, especially because most modern music is bland compared to the early 2000s and earlier.

Amazing show!

This show is fantastic in demonstrating to little ones that we can handle and express emotions and situations like disappointments, disagreements, and confusion by taking time to “think about it”. Also lots of diverse representation! Wonderful to see you and your family represented. Would absolutely recommend.
