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.

GREAT SHOW FOR YOUNGER KIDS - with strong female character

I think this is an excellent show for children between the ages of 4-8. The stories are fun but always have a message about friendship, teamwork, responsibility and self-respect. I think the comment above about the quirky characters is a little too sensitive. There is absolutely no bad language, violence or inappropriate behavior. Were it anymore "toned down" the characters would only preach and not entertain. I also disagree about the girls. ONE is stereotypical, but she is a minor character compared to Connie who is strong, intelligent, independent and respected by all the boys for her intelligence and abilities.
age 5+

The characters need work.

I don't like this show because its characters are based on stereotypes. The characters are classified by boy/girl hobbies and say to little kids, girls are always into makeup and singing while boys are into skateboarding and rock and roll. The show has some good values, but I don't like that the characters have only gender dominant traits.
