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.

Surprisingly good!

I love watching this show with my daughter! Barbie is a much better role model now than she was when I was a kid. I love how each of her sisters are well-developed and have their own interests and personalities, so there are multiple characters for your child to relate to. Barbie shares her (mild) issues and how she overcame them in a vlog, which I think is great for younger viewers that can’t always figure out the morale of the story on their own.

I love this.

This is a nice show that I love. I love that Daisy Doyle, the pink haired girl is normally shaped. I'm not a radical feminist who hates the svelte, thin women of cartoons but think we should have some normal shaped girls that aren't fat. Also this show has Nikki, Renee and Teresa who are black, Latina and Japanese respectively, which is great. The only problem with this show is Tammy Wen, the bully, because she's Asian. Asian bullies are very overused. If they wanted her to be Asian, they could have made her Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Filipino or Thai rather than Chinese. Literally every Asian bully in an American cartoon seems to be Chinese for some reason.
