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.

A matue TWO is fiiiiiiiiiine.

My daughter LOVES this movie. The music ~ the stomp like dance sequence ~ the drama ~ the flying. She takes all the pieces and reinacts them through her week.

Our favorite version of this classic story

We picked up the Mary Martin version of Peter Pan from a thrift store one day, and the next week my boys (ages 4 and 3) found this version at the library. For the past couple of weeks, they've alternated between the two versions every time they've gotten to watch a video, but this one is definitely their favorite. My older son is usually easily frightened by suspense and tension in movies and TV (he even hides his eyes while watching Charlie and Lola), but I think seeing the audience in this movie made the story seem less real to him and therefore less scary. Both boys love the music and dancing, which gets them up and moving instead of watching the movie like couch potatoes. One downside I have noticed is that my boys play-fight more since I let them watch this.

    Clumsy mishmash of a comedy has violence, profanity.
