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.

Decent education, but lacking in entertainment

There was obviously some thought and care put into this show when compared to something like Cocomelon, and it is slightly more calm than a lot of other shows, but still doesn't feel like an ideal choice for us. The show will hold a toddler's interest, but the annoying voices, boring scenarios, the 1-dimensional characters, and the unnatural way the characters speak to each other keep this show from aging well throughout the preschool years, and makes it annoying for parents. I do not hate the show, but compared to some of the more enjoyable programs, I will never opt for this. It seems more like educational videos wearing the superficial mask of a story. Very bland. I did not notice any overt violence or marketing, but the show still made use of themes some parents may wish to avoid (pirates, candy, Santa) so each episode will need to be judged on its own merit.
