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 Bat-tastic time! I love it.

This show is a BLAST. I love the music, girl protagonists, and the non-scary monsters. I (a 29 year old mom of 3) legitimately watch it with my girls and sing the songs. I’m always excited when they pick Vampirina. The first time we tried it on Disney+ , we ended up binging this entire series in just over a week. (Don’t do the math on how many hours of screen time that is… it was winter!) I love the messages of -being different is okay -trying new things is great -feeling nervous is okay and you can still do scary things -parents will help you when you ask -you can show initiative and come up with solutions -friends help each other The only tiny detail that I am mindful of is Vampirina often tries to solve problems by herself because she wants to prove she doesn’t need help or she is afraid that her mom and dad won’t trust her with tasks in the future if she asks for help. But that’s as simple as having a quick conversation, “Hey, I noticed Vampirina was nervous to ask for help, but that seems like an awfully big job to handle by yourself. You know, asking for help is actually a really great thing. That’s what grownups are there for after all! I know I love helping you guys out when you have a big problem. And I bet Vampirina’s parents would be happy to help too. Sometimes being a team is easier than trying to do everything by yourself.”

a VERY good show for younger kids

Alright so i may be an adult woman (18yr) but I'm a huge sucker for cartoons, I'm an age dreamer myself meaning because of childhood issues, i tend to lean towards cartoons rather then more grown up stuff. i absolutely love this show, its perfect for kids and it has great messages about taking care of eachother and your neighbours and looking out for one another and doing the right thing ect, i even used an episode to teach my little sister about the importance of being kind. a ton of super religious christians gave this show a really negative review but all i can say is grow up, and thats coming from me! teach your kids whats right and wrong and they'll be able to tell that this cartoon vampire is exactly what it is, a cartoon. nothinh harmful
