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.

Actually quite decent

Usually, preschool shows are meant to be bad, but this one is actually one of them decent ones.

The only show we allow our toddler to watch

We limit screen time to a bare minimum in our house, but sometimes it’s really helpful to be able to let our son sit and watch a show for a bit. The only show allowed in our house for our 2 1/2 year old is Kipper. It is so sweet, calm, and not in any way obnoxious. The music is quiet and jazzy. The plots are interesting enough that my husband and I don’t mind watching, and the British accents and phrases keep us entertained. We love Kipper!
