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.

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

My son has loved this movie for years

Since he was very small my son has enjoyed this movie. He's 5 now and it still holds his attention. Nothing too scary or questionable here. Pretty decent for an independently made film for kids.
