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.

Beware the ads!

There were ads for cereals in the middle of this. On a DVD?! Frosted Flakes type things, come on! It might have been great, but I saw that and stopped the DVD immediately.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
