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.

Diverse and charming

Initially I hated the character of Duggee solely because his voice is annoying, but watching it further if you can get past that, it's actually fantastic. There's a gay couple, one of the children is clearly adopted, and it features positive messages about behaviour and morals. Only two issues I've found personally are an episode involving a totem pole (cultural appropriation) and they eat animal products (we're vegan, appreciate not everyone will be bothered by this).
