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.

There wasn't an option to select "no age"... So disappointing to see cartoons made nowadays with impossible body types for girls to normalize. Why are these girls stick thin, with tiny waists, wearing short skirts? Isn't the show supposed to be about friendship and be empowering? I hate for my girls to see these depictions.

One of the Best movies I watched and teaches you Good meaning to how to control your anger and keeping your friends safe

I recommend you let your children watching this with them seeing how they grow up to be more understanding of they feel so In my opinion is a wonderful movie to watch all over again.
