Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (10 ):

There's not much good to say about a cartoon that targets tweens (and younger) yet has its impossibly thin, fashion-crazy characters sporting skimpy outfits, platform heels, and too much makeup. Dealing with "lame-o" boys and "fashion freaks" and "royal jerks," it's mean spirited and not quite appropriate for target age group. The emphasis on the externals is worrisome, as is the Bratz look itself: They hardly look like the empowered girls they say they are.

Two positive notes: The music is hummable and, through thick and thin, the girls find their way to each other. When they neglect their friendships, they are eventually apologetic. Soleil Moon Frye, who played the scrappy, cheery, wholesome Punky Brewster in a TV series decades ago, voices one of the Bratz. Too bad this series isn't as positive a role model as her 1980s alter-ego was.

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.
