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.

men's rights propaganda

I can't believe this received 5 stars for "positive messages". The very first episode is about how mean it is for girls to set boundaries against boys, how it is right for boys to not tolerate those boundaries, and how girls should sacrifice their relationship with other girls to destroy those boundaries. That is NOT a message I want for my daughter OR my son.

Too bad one character ruins it all

Its too bad, the show is really cute and some of the episodes are doable, but it's one characetr, Belinda, who ruins it.. every.. single.. episode. The problem is that for some reason the creators decided to add this character that does nothing but BRAG BRAG BRAG and put herself on a pedestal. And it's rampant. Probably every word out of her mouth is her declaring how great she is and how amazing she is. Confidence is good, but being cocky is not. Unfortunately my daughter likes the show but I'm weeing her off of it. Disneys really good at this. Adding a character with the snobby attitude. It's just not needed.
