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.

Clever show but not for young kids at all

I started watching the last season with my 7 year old and the first few episodes were great; funny, clever, entertaining. Then the bears started getting into situations like thinking they were being stalked in the night by knife-wielding murderers, one brother has an apparent reaction to caffeine and tried to kill his brothers with an axe a-la The Shining and climbed the walls and ceiling like Trainspotting, and another brother was sedated and almost operated on in the hospital against his will as he screamed for help. Honestly, I’m not sure why this is on Kids Netflix. Some of the episodes are just fine for a kid, and I enjoy it as an adult but those few episodes made it a bad experience with a young kid. I think it might be okay for an older kid but I’d consider what your kid can handle.

Too much violence

Can be enjoyed by a wide range of ages

My 6 year old loves it even if he doesn't get all the cultural commentary, pop culture references, and perceives some off-color humor in the simplest terms. We love watching it, too, so it provides good family viewing time. We all think it is brilliant. It is much tamer and kid appropriate compared to something like the Simpsons.

Great role models
