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.

Throwback, but relatively good for an old “movie”

It makes me cry more than my kid. The whole metaphor of kids growing up and leaving their childhood fantasies behind makes me realize how quickly the years go by. All that said, my 4 year old enjoys this now, and has since he was 3. One scene with a pirate is a little frightening, but Puff tells Jackie to use his wits to save them and he does.
