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.

Overly sexualized and inappropriate for young kids

Not for young kids. Boobs juggling ass juggling no concept of personal space.... Evil characters rampant. Not a good watch I regret showing this to my 5 year old. Bad language too.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Animal Vegetable Mineral

Digital modern version of Sword in the Stone with a family saving a circus. This movie was delayed several times, nearly canceled and not available on Amazon like the other animal CGI cartoon Duck Duck Goose. This movie stars Tara Strong, Danny DeVito and Emily Blunt that all had been VA´s in Friendship is Magic. Hilarious chases, lots of out of context and cartoony CGI. You can always talk with Animal Crackers on their Youtube channel. In consumerism of course breakfast.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
