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.

Great alternative to "princess" worship

When I first saw the Fancy Nancy merchandise I was not impressed - too much stuff! But then I actually read the books, and they won my heart. Far from being materialistic, Nancy is a creative kid who fashions "fancification" from everyday objects, is curious and thoughtful, and loves new ideas and new words. All in all, a great role model for my princess-obsessed daughter (who now looooooves Nancy). We will never move to a palace, but we did decorate her room "Fancy Nancy style" with garlands of tinsel from our tree and the bows that came on our Christmas presents!
