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.

Lesson to all bullies

I think it's a very hilarious educational family movie. The 6 year old girl reminds me of my wife attitude & strength wise. There's ways to say zip it without hurting someone's feelings.

On repeat

Bought this DVD for a long car trip having never heard of it and the kids Ages 9 and 6 just wanted it on repeat despite having many other choices. It seems fun and light and just an easy watch.
