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.

Could be better

I love the kids and the concept. But feel the kids would be better served by different hosts and better questions and comments directed to them. Great for young kids to see the constants face their fears and keep pushing through all the challenges. Great roll models teaching, honesty, respectfulness and determineation. Love the show just need a few changes to make it even better.
