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.

I think this is a Fraggle Rock ripoff...

I know that it's not really a Fraggle Rock ripoff but from what I have seen this show is really bizarre at times so it feels like a Fraggle Rock clone. And the puppets are sometimes very creepy and I felt unsettled by this show.

show contains magic.

This seems great in all areas except it has magic, and it should be noted in the comments for parents to realize.
