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.

An Annoying Commercial

This is a dull waste of time. The children judges were chosen for their hits on YouTube; one is "The Apparently Kid" from the Ellen show and the 13-year old girl does some videos as well. There are 2 other child judges. Whether it's the editing or the coaching, or simply because the children aren't able to put together sensible commentary on the products they review - instead going for cutesy statements or mugging for the camera - this is a complete waste of time. I feel sorry for the inventors who have their futures in the hands of children who are not capable of intelligent review. Mind-numbingly boring and repetitive. The entire show is a commercial for Mattel products and Toys R Us.
