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.

Most gentle Care Bears movie, good examples

Out of all the Care Bears films this is the most little-kid friendly. Nothing scary or any villians. Instead Wish Bear wishes for more friends, who turn out a bit uncooth but not bad. Good examples of how not to act from the 'new' Bears that arrive (Messy Bear, Too-Loud-Bear and Me Bear) and a good moral. I would reccomend watching this before Journey to Joke a lot though one mention of it comes up in the beginning. Joke a lot has a slightly(?) scary rollercoaster ride to some kids and most of the film only shows one Bear through most of it and may be boring to younger kids. Big Wish is pretty much appropriate for any age but 3+ would understand it more.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
