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.

Loved the 1st season but...

Docked a star watching the second with my 4 yo daughter. Really love the premise, art and music. She was not scared watching the first season, but we just started a new episode where one of the little kids gets their head chopped off and I had to stop it immediately. Kind of disappointed as it did not seem pivotal to the plot.

norse myth kids show is great

norse mythology based kids show, some dark yet cartoonish elements okay i'm hearing a lot of reviews saying this show is 'demonic' and full of creepiness. it's not that at all. yes there are spirits, but they are nature spirits from norse folklore. there are some kinda creepy episodes admittedly i would maybe skip the episode called 'the tide mice' cuz david and hilda's mum get possessed or 'the jorts incident' cuz the tide mice reappear but its less creepy. the show does have a fair amount of magic and such. some of the monsters like trolls and giants and ogres might be frightening for younger kids (age 4-6) i am a teenager and love this show and is anticipating the new movie 'Hilda and the Mountain king'
