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.

Good but violent

This show is super great. I showed this to my son and he is playing with my old Transformers toys. It is a little violent but as long as your kids understand that hitting/killing other people is not ok it should be fine. The other thing I don't like is the lack of positive female role models.
