not at all impressed with this once age appropriate cute girl's new look, another fake made up role model for our daughters

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (5 ):

In the tradition of Strawberry Shortcake and Dora the Explorer, ‘80s cartoon icon Rainbow Brite has transformed from a kid into a fashionable tween. (Technically, she's supposed to be 10 years old, but she looks mature for her age.) Rainbow Brite's new website is super colorful (of course) and has about a dozen animations and activities. They're well done, but kids will probably go through them pretty quickly. More content and added voice-overs -- it's a bit text-heavy in spots for young readers -- would give the site some extra sparkle.

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.
