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.

A Sweet and Wholesome Show

We love Topsy and Tim for the gentle pace that so perfectly captures the wonder of everyday life for young children. It's a great show for introducing new experiences and helping to process the big feelings that sometimes accompany those. Furthermore, the adults in Topsy and Tim's life seem to portray quite healthy behaviours. This is one of our favourite shows as a family with young kids. All in all, a refreshingly wholesome show which reflects traditional values.
