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.

IT’s garbage

It’s pure garbage it’s basically corporate greed mashed up into this you’re kids shouldn’t watch it give them better movies like toystory or dreamworks or something not this you’re kids need better stuff that can interest them not this stuff yes it’s colorful and can distract your kids for an hour but it’s not even educational at least show them something like pbs kids or something like that because at least they can learn but this won’t teach them smack EDIT: also I have a 3 year old daughter and a 6 year old son and nether of them liked it when I asked them and they showed this at my daughter’s daycare and at allot of the kids there liked the movie (parents were allowed to come) and me and my wife could see the faces of the parents who basically wanted the movie to end so they can leave and one parent (we’ll call her sandy for privacy) asked the teacher if she could not play this anymore)

Awesome!! Make more color city movies, please!

My grandson is 3yrs old and he loves this movie. He loves the songs and he is learning his colors from this movie. In fact his mom, aunt and I love to watch the movie with him. He acts out the brown, blue, green and other male character colors (this movie is also helping him to learn more words) and wants us to do the red, yellow and other female voices. I wish they would make more movies with these crayons in color city and same voices
