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.

Intense violence in later episodes

The review doesn't mention that episodes 3 and 4 feature scenes of brutal violence. A mentally unstable character who's very affected for his "loss" tears apart a stuffed animal, and later stones, kicks and stabs his friends. No blood since they're toys but still very disturbing. Also there are bullying themes, and very tear-jerking scenes relating to the mother's illness. The 7+ recommendation seems okay for the first episodes. Later on, the content says otherwise.

Sensitive kids should stay clear of this one

I saw the preview and thought, "what a great buddy movie to watch with my 10 year old." As an adult it was. As a sensitive 10 yr old, not so much. This 4 part series has everything. Great characters, great plot and subplots. Action adventure, romance, love, buddies, hope, good messages, pirates, fun, sadness, twists and turn, then there was dark, scary, and a stuffy murder. My whole family was in tears several times and laughing at other times, by my son was traumatized by the stuffy murder. Such a great movie though. Can't recommend it for young viewers.
