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.

Nostalgic for parents, fun for kids

My daughter loves this show. I thought we'd be annoyed, but it was fun to see the show again thirty years later.

PeeWee entertains people of all ages!

This show enterained me as a child, and I still catch myself watching it when I have it on for my kids. Yes, it is random and silly... But it teaches children about friendship, being patient, what being selfish and selfless means... and that beint different is okay. It has fun songs and dancing, unique characters and interesting subjects.
