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.

We like it.

We do enjoy this program. There is a bit of family drama and parents can talk with their children as to why that is. The stress of making a cake before a deadline does not always bring out the best in some family members. My children are more focused on the art work and the cakes. Ralf has become my daughter's favorite as well as Buddy and his family. Parents also need to know that the family also likes to pull pranks on one another from time to time and that children may try and do the same.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

Fun show

I generally agree with this site and I'm pretty strict about what I let my kids watch, but I don't see anything wrong with this show. The family members argue sometimes, but that's normal and sometimes entertaining. This show also demonstrates impressive creativity.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
