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.

Most wonderful time of the year

Halloween here we meet again. More spooks, stupidity and confusion than before. In consumerism lots of electronic toys for kids and adults. And for more consumerism you can emoty your account on Amazon with rows and rows of Paranormal Activitiy, Blair Witch wannabes whatever.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
age 14+
