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.

Kid will hit the Replay button!

While for parents it may be boring or the parents standard mentality...throw that out the window with this one. It is super fun to watch. (My child gets EASILY bored, short attention span) It teaches faith both in humans and animals and common sense.. (great for kids with Autism). It's funny, had ME laughing, and teaches kids about how pets need love. If you liked the Secret Life of Pets, you'll definetly love this one! There was obviously poor marketing for this movie.
