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.

Best Nick Jr show ever!

I remember when this show first came out when I was 4, and it became my favorite show on Nick Jr. Even as an adult, I still love this show and I recommend it for today's kids.
