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.

My Great Grandson really gets into the one especially the lost egg and the ghost chasers its about a lizard skin that is floating in the air.

He has learned a lot from this one and phonic on Youtube. He watches word party he has learned from the all and has memorized saying on tree house the hole session of it. He get so excited. He went to no talking at 2 to now almost 3 and is smarter than we know. He learned all the alphabet, numbers and now is reading from the programs we left the words on them as they say it. He will be 3 shortly. So Yes these programs all help develop them in different ways just put things on they cant get things showing up you dont want. I use YouTube kids and block things from it.

Very Good Version of the Detective Team Show

The conceit is just like many other kids' shows where the team of friends is alerted to some sort of mystery and they work to solve it, but this one is very well-executed. Great animation and pacing for preschoolers. The characters are all friendly and helpful to one another, and the problems/mysteries are not at all scary or dire. The team often uses natural science to solve the problems, so there's an educational component, too. Good, solid fare for preschool age kids.
