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.

Nice concept but negatives

Smart girls, nice concept.. unfortunately being British found the American accent too fast/insta everywhere/1st series wanting to be a girlfriend.. would guess age 9+

A pretty decent show with good plots and interesting characters. While I love the girl power, there are no equally strong boys along side them. No gender is better they are equal. So obviously I love the smart girl characters, it is a great change of pace. One of the only kids shows that doesn’t feature a “dumb blonde”. But i think they should at least have a smart boy side character. Overall, it is a good show and fun to watch the fashions of the main girls.
