Sends Terrible Message to Kids

Other users have it right: Rainbow High is extremely shallow. Kids also don't need to be worried about how many "likes" or "followers" they should have on any social media platform, but it focuses way too much on that. This show has zero substance.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (17 ):
Kids say (17 ):

This colorful series lacks much educational value and puts too much emphasis on consumerism and outward appearance. Children who love the Rainbow High doll collection will enjoy watching this series, but it's a missed opportunity for teaching viewers more about visual arts. Characters often use their skills to attract attention from boys, gain followers and likes on social media, or to avoid doing schoolwork. While the show illustrates the importance of friendship, it also lacks diversity and glorifies cliques.
