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.

Another generic toy commercial...

I know that cartoons have had toys as part of their marketing since the Felix the Cat and those cat clocks back almost a century ago. That said it's fine for cartoons to go hand in hand with a toy line, however if the show is nothing more than a lazy cash grab with zero substance and plain Jane characters and horrible voice acting then I have a problem. And this is a crap show designed to sell toys and it does a lazy job at it. I grew up with cartoon/toyline series like Transformers, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Ninja Turtles (the old one that is actually good) and those did a nice job of making a captivating story that sold on the idea of playing pretend with the toys and stuff. This show however is a lifeless shallow commercial that fails to tell a story or teach anything educational at all. The STEM science that CSM claims that this teaches is non existent as I know quite a bit about that stuff personally and this is just a sad mathematically inaccurate attempt at introducing it to kids and was obviously made by people who have zero idea what the heck they are talking about. It doesn't teach anything but cartoon logic and to quote Ren and Stimpy "cartoons will rot your brain you eediot!"
