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.

Kind of lacked on the sexy stuff section.

Sure you’ve explained more on the positive role models, violence, language, and drugs sections in detail, but you’ve overlooked on sex as there was more than just “some mild flirting and a kiss on the cheek”. For instance, it included a giggling big-breasted Native American female that tiptoed behind an European and was about to do something very naughty offscreen before he is caught stealing. Also shows two boys watching a girl changing her clothes before helping her explore and there is a naughty portrait hang on the Mousekewitz’s wall containing a large animal and a naked woman swimming. You really need to watch it again to get things straight.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
