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.

Don’t bother with this show

My son watched Cailou and now he throws temper tantrums when he doesn’t get his way, whines and talks back constantly. Don’t let your kids watch Cailou.

My kids adore

My kids adore Amazon Jack. I've read the other reviews of this being not for kids yada yada. We homeschool our kids ages 4, 5, & 14 they've watched this show a multitude of times after school of course for well over a year. I have ZERO issues with this show for my younger kids. They're interested in the animal, not the politics of the show everyone else is caught up in. I let my kids enjoy what they like and monitor their choices .
