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.

Don’t Show This To your Kids!!

The Play dates Are Not even Playdates They Just Do Some Mess with a Kid And His Parents. It is Way too Repetitive For Preschool Age Children, And Targets Kids As Old as 5 or 6 Years of Age. It is Not Even Educational, And The Animation Looks Like Someone Put Their Hand in A Garbage Can And Smeared it on the Paper. It’s Intended Audience (2 to 6) is Very Impressionable And Will Be as Messy As this Show And Should NOT Watch This. And It is Also a Cash Grab For Crappy Plastic Toddler Merchandise Stuff, Switch The Channel To PBS Kids or something for Your Kid if You Know He/She is Watching it. And Teach Them They Will Never Always Win like Ryan
