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.

A classic!

I loved watching this as a child and I love re-watching it now with my own kid even more!

So charming. So lovely. So imaginative.

Clangers is full of love and sweetness and creativity and imagination and wonder: exactly all the things I want my young children to be. This show is a gem. It isn't overly didactic. It's visually stunning. It's other-worldliness encourages me (and my child) to think outside the box. It has charmed me ten times over. I highly recommend, especially if you're looking for something cerebral, beautiful, and gentle.
