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.

Untraditional family values

Cute show, but much like many other modern cartoons the creators are slipping political messaging in. We thought it was innocent and were surprised to see that it, like many shows, doesn't prefer traditional families.

Fun show

My 4 year old really likes this show. I like how it fosters good family dynamics. Pete's older brother is supportive and fun. Also love that it encourages kids to be themselves.
