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.

Not perfect, but better than expected.

Rusty Rivets has some small quibbles, but throughout the 3 Seasons, it's a fun show with a main character (Rusty Rivets) making fun inventions and saving the day, never giving up and if at first Rusty and Ruby don't succeed, they try again with a new invention, and it has a positive female Latina lead (Ruby Ramirez), I hope one day the show gets revived. Rusty Rivets is a hidden gem.
