This minutes-long Web show feels much like a multidimensional version of the American Girl magazine and delivers wonderful messages about self-esteem to young girls. Every segment encourages girls to embrace what makes them special and to march to the beat of their own drums. Even those stories that instruct specific projects (using an outgrown sweater to make fashion accessories, for instance) remind viewers to make them their own by adding their unique touches. Person-on-the-street polls, style tips, craft how-to's, and many moments that celebrate being a girl round out this fast-paced series.

Despite its association with the American Girl conglomeration, the show doesn't reference AG products, but it does remind viewers multiple times to correspond with the crew through comments and likes on its YouTube channel. If nothing else, it's a great reason to discuss Internet safety with your kids.

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.
