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.

Someone has to say it: For whatever educational value this show has, it is absolutely insufferable. Awful design, animation, and voice acting makes it a pain to watch, with the characters come off more as robotic (psychotic at times!) than cute and welcoming (how is this associated with Jim Henson?!). As far as “education” goes, the weird animals get into weird altercations that are resolved with weird conflict resolution. It’s like being trapped in bright white limbo with temperamental robots.

Annoying

Word Party is a great show to teach kids words and feelings. However, the characters themselves are not realistically developed for "babies" their age. Franny, the cheetah seems to be the only one with common sense as well as the one who REALISTICALLY acts like a baby/child. Lulu, the panda, is uncharacteristically dumb and picks and chooses when she knows words and doesn't. It doesn't make sense. She's smart enough to know words that as the "baby" of the group that they're claiming her to be, but doesn't know simple words like "apple."
