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.

There are no strippers. no nudity. nothing. its fine for your kids

this show is literally amazing, whoever says its sexual, no 6 year old is going to pick up on that.. unless u and your wife getting a bit dodgy in front of them and their learning from places... the girls are not strippers I can confirm.

Me and my daughter love it!!

Yes, I know it seems a little too late to be writing a review on a cartoon that came out in 2004, but yesterday I just found out about Common Sense Media, so yesterday I created my account, and today I left a review. Here we go: Me and my daughter love the show!! We are currently on season 2 episode 15, almost at 16. In fact, my daughter is watching it right now!! (I'm watching it as I type.) My favorite fairy is probably Stella or Bloom, while my daughter's favorite fairy is Flora (and it's not hard to see why.) All of the girls are strong and fight against a trio of sisters called "the Trix." So far, Winx Club has taught my daughter that you don't need to always be saved by a man, unlike the really old Disney princess movies, where the female is being saved by the male, however in Winx Club, the fairies are the main characters, and they don't need to be saved by the boys (or in this case, the "Specialists".) Unlike what the Common Sense review stated, the Winx don't really kiss their boyfriends that often. I saw some of the other shows that this Common Sense reviewer reviewed, and those reviews mainly stated the good things about those shows. However, when Common Sense was reviewing Winx Club, they mainly focused on the negative aspects on the show. Seriously now!! See the good things, not the bad! Why can't some people realise that?? I don't know, some people are just incredibly stupid...
