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.

Concerning

The idea is cute... Let your little talk to cookie monster right? My main concern is the front camera shows my child as he plays just like a video call would. I get that that's the point but on a device that actually has the ability to make video calls how do I know that there's not someone somewhere seeing my child too? In a world of greedy people with inpure intentions, I just don't trust it. I didn't hear anything inappropriate from cookie from listening to my little one play it but we are to private to overlook the possibility of someone seeing us without our knowledge. Same thing with the elmo version.

Cookie Calls

Lil' Bit enjoys the calls but the app keeps on crashing and it's really annoying. It also takes up way too much storage. When Lil' Bit doesn't want to do something (such as napping) we can program a message into the call because she'll listen to one of the "Sesame Streets" no matter what.
