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.

Good for toddlers, especially sensitive ones

Turns out that finding a holiday program for toddler isn’t easy - many of the classics have some scary elements that would be too much for my 2 year old. This one has songs, is a watchable 45 min length, has familiar characters to a book that she likes, has an age appropriate plot, and teaches a good lesson.
