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.

Someone has to say it: For whatever educational value this show has, it is absolutely insufferable. Awful design, animation, and voice acting makes it a pain to watch, with the characters come off more as robotic (psychotic at times!) than cute and welcoming (how is this associated with Jim Henson?!). As far as “education” goes, the weird animals get into weird altercations that are resolved with weird conflict resolution. It’s like being trapped in bright white limbo with temperamental robots.

Bad examples for kids

I don’t have a problem with some of the characters on the show. I love kip because of his energy & Bailey because he’s the peaceful one of the group. However I do believe that the show sometimes teaches kids bad examples on how to deal with things. There’s one episode in season 4 where lulu didn’t want to share her “raffie” toy with tilli (the new baby turtle) because it was her “special toy” but when tilli ran off sad because she had nothing to play with, the what’s it toy bough her a kite to play with. Of course lulu then ran over and wanted to play with tilli’s kite and tilli said no the kite is hers. Then the Show was set up to where the other babies explained to tilli that she should share her kite with everyone because they are all friends. I feel like it isn’t right to teach children if someone doesn’t want to share with you you still have to share with them, that is a complete NO! Why make tilli share with lulu but they didn’t make lulu share with tilli. And another bad example they set for kids is when they always have the “big kids” respond “yes” when the babies sing their “please please please” song. Children need to know that everything isn’t going to end in “yes” they need to add a no in there a few times. Especially when they ask can we please play one more time before bed.
