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 Fun For A 10 Year Old!

In The Mysterious Abductions, you’ll tag along with The Nocturnal Brigade, an unlikely trio of nighttime sleuths, as they solve the mysterious disappearances of their animal friends. Dawn, Tobin, and Bismark—the members of The Nocturnal Brigade—laugh, sneak, and scheme their way into a strange and imaginative new game that includes referee bats and a soaring spider-puck! Themes of teamwork, inclusion, and forgiveness are woven into an epic adventure that my ten year old adored.
