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.

Fun and engaging toy with way off marketing

This toy is marketed for 6 months plus. That's pretty wild to me. Sure you as a parent can put a book in here and your kid can hear the words being read and look at the pictures and words but they will not be very engaged with it for long. My daughter got this as a gift as a 9 or 12 month old and didn't like it at all. We were pulling it out to give it away and then she found it and started playing with it as a 4 year old and loves it. She loves the questions it asks about the story, which are quite easy for her to answer at this age, and she always gets them right which is fun for kids this age. We have the Sesame Street books and are ordering the Winnie the Pooh ones because she loves it so much.
