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 had to turn it off

It was great until they showed a teenage girl in slow motion in a bikini which put a lot of emphasis on her body. It was a little too much so I had to shut it off.

I think it was really funny! says my five year old

My five year says: I like the kid who blew up the best. I think the kids voice was really cute.
