Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

Kids, parents, and educators will be drawn to the illustrated hosts of PlanetPals where a set of cute “planet pals” (each with their own backstory, video, and poem!) welcome visitors. With names like Earthman, Starbright, and Breezy, you may expect a site geared to toddlers with short attention spans, but there’s a tremendous amount of informative environmental and ecological information to be discovered in this simple, safe, award-winning Web site.

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.
