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.

I think that this is a wonderful game to let you children play! It perpares them for the outer world, and helps inprove their people skills! As long as they stay away from "wohoo" they are fine! Enjoy your fun creative game full of surprises and adventure!
