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.

Drivel, really

I used to baby sit a family with 4 children ages 3-13. This show would come on and give minimal effort for ideas for episodes. The only reason it was on ever is because its wedged between two actually good PBS shows thomas and friends and dinosaur train. I recall a rather insultingly disappointing episode where the characters meet Emily Dickinson (one of the greatest female fiction writers ever) and she has writers block. That's fine, except she eventually gets help from a RAPPING ZEBRA. I honestly think for a better formula, they should have met the zebra first and then get inspiration from Emily Dickinson, that way teaches more about her as a person as well and treat the kids like they are learning something instead of being visual dumpsters. I still cringe internally whenever I hear the words.... "We've got a REAAAALLLY BIIIIIIIIIG PROBLEM!" Most of the time it is not even that big of a problem. Sometimes it's not their problem to have. I understand its fir kids but there are other shows that can do it better and actually help to develop early braincells.

My daughter's fave

With fun songs and humor, Peg will introduce math concepts and tell a good story along with her trusty sidekick. This is the only show that my 2.5 year old laughs out loud to. While I doubt she's actually learning anything by watching the show alone, the catchy songs help me follow up with her and help me introduce concepts to her.
