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.

Nice children’s show to watch and learn from a good role model

Oswald is a really charming and nice guy that I wouldn’t mind my child watching and absorbing in his personality. This show has no bad words, or any negativity that a child can rub off onto while young in the developing stages. The Show also shows a lot of useful values and lessons to learn and speech patterns are easy for a toddler or a young child to pick up on.
