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.

Up in the air

If your family loves European and less mainstream cartoons watch this. Could get too intense and foreign for some, but good for education at school. A big deal of dog romance. Nice animation by the way. Of consumerism it includes Moscow, Russia.
