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.

One of the good ones for my 3 year old

I'm not a fan of the super fast pace of most modern toddler shows, and it can be hard to find something that is just simple and enjoyable. This show is a visual delight, and I take issue with reviews that say it has low educational value. No, it doesn't teach kids the ABCs, but it does show friendship, teamwork, problem solving, simple machines/physics concepts from the physical world. The music is sparse and pleasant. It doesn’t have any violence or questionable dialogue. My 3 year old is extremely engaged, and watches with curiosity and not the glossy eyed zombie stare that most other shows elicit from him. We watch together and have a conversation throughout as he exclaims, “Look at that guy! What is that light doing? How will they get the ball back?” etc.

We’re a Buddi family!!

I LOVE Buddi, and so do my kids. It’s such a hidden gem, I can’t believe it isn’t everywhere! The visuals are gorgeous, and the characters are so sweet with the cutest noises. My youngest kids, 13 months and 3 years, love watching and are absolutely enamored with the show. The older kids enjoy watching the little ones react and laugh with the characters! I highly recommend this show for anyone with young kids needing a burst of happy and fun.
