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.

Perfect for tinies

I have two kids, one and three. It has occasional "violence," but that mostly consists of one dino roaring at another. No blood or even and actual injuries. As others have mentioned, it has little educational value, but it has great social messages. Everything is focused on being nice to friends, giving things, sharing, not bragging too much, etc. It's PERFECT for younger kids who you want to teach these social skills, though if you child is a bit older it may not be as great as other shows more focused on education. That said, it has a good message in every episode and you can feel safe with your kids watching it.

That is not a gigantosaurus

Fine cartoon that teaches teamwork with lovely animation, but the titular “Gigantosaurus” is problematic. It is actually a Giganotosaurus (with an extra “o”). The original Gigantosaurus was a misidentified sauropod (like a diplodocus), and the cartoon depicts a carnivorous Gigantosaurus, so I don’t see why they have given it the wrong name? If kids love dinosaurs and are smart enough to differentiate between them then let’s teach them the correct names.
