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.

Diversity, Music, Imagination!

Our daughter started watching this when she was 3. We caught her dancing along and humming to the music and we loved how music, teamwork and family were central themes.
