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 co-operative game which teaches kids to communicate.

Players work together to make sort ingredients, make recipes, clean dishes and serve customers against the clock. The best part is its entirely non-violent (they get to use knives - but only to prepare vegetable prior to cooking. After a couple of hours playing this I was astounded to see two seven year olds talking and cooperating really well. I didn't realise cooperation and communication were part of the seven year old vocabulary.
