Steven universe (2013) is fit for under 10s!

Come on, there is nothing offensive in Steven Universe (2013) that would make it have to be rated 10+

Inclusive can be smart and fun!

A delightful cartoon that is inclusive in so many ways. The animation and music are both beautiful and clearly crafted with care, the characters and relationships are lovingly portrayed and the messages of resilience and inclusivity are given with humour and a light touch. I watch this with my 4 year old and my 8 year old and we all enjoy it in different ways. There's literally nothing in the show that I have issues with.
