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.

Both my boys want to be on this show with their dad!

My husband and I watched this show together first to be certain we wanted to include it on our family list. Now it's on our TIVO favorites. Excellent teamwork between children and fathers, includes both boys and girls, even those who don't win might get prizes for effort.
