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.

This show is really good!

Now I respect everyone's reviews on this show but I think that this is one of the best shows next to Wonder Pets! The animation is cute and really well done, the characters are ok on the show even though some of the characters act bad but sometimes they don't know what to do, that's why they learn on how to change behavior throw-out the show. and finally learning Chinese, this is also good for teaching kids another language to speak. as a comedian and a critic I give this show 10 out of 10!
