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.

Surprisingly good.

You know, it's funny, I actually didn't grow up with this show, but after checking out a bit of it, I kind of wish I had. This is probably one of the most well-thought-out preschool shows ever made. The art direction is incredible. For early CGI, this looks great adding to the fun of the images on screen. And on that note, the writing is really good too. It teaches great messages to kids without coming off as condescending. In other words, it treats kids like intelligent human beings, and I admire that greatly. If you're looking for something for your children to watch, this is a great show for them. Also, one last thing to note to the one who gave it 0 stars... okay, I can understand having issues with the lingo used in the show from time to time, but that is NO reason to give it 0 stars.

Very cute show for kids to watch

I am currently 21 years old and I started watching this at around 9 or 10 years old and even for an older kid it was amusing to watch! I wouldn't mind sitting down and watching it again and if I had a child of my own I wouldn't mind letting my child watch it either! Its cute and the theme song is catchy. The bright colors and shapes are what drew me to the show as well.
