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.

I think it might be too dark for kids under 5

Kid that are 5 and under should watch TV Y
age 5+


My children and I watch this together often. The characters are adorable and the interactions exchanged always convey a very friendly and fundamental message but in a fantastical way. I think it is easily understand and very positive for children. The fact that the children in the show are so diverse teaches just that.. diversity and acceptance. Definitely my personal favorite.
