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.

My daughter's current favorite

Love the beautiful graphics and very innocent storylines. Perfect for preschoolers. Love that this is available in Mandarin Chinese on Netflix. One of the rare Mandarin cartoons on Netflix with Taiwanese accent.

Not Very Interesting

All the episodes are basically identical. It's theoretically a "detective" show but obviously isn't. Noddy always works everything out on his own eventually. Fine but I wouldn't choose to have a kid watch it.
