If your kid listener is crazy about fairies, cupcakes, singing, and pink everything all the time, this may be the podcast for you. Pinkalicious & Peterrific has energy and enthusiasm to spare. It's full of upbeat songs, bubbly brother-sister dialogue, and constant encouragement to be creative and sing your way to gratitude, happiness, and joy. The podcast occasionally touches on and models how kids can deal with minor setbacks, like sickness, boredom, or rainy days, but it usually keeps things so bubbly and bright that it misses opportunities to normalize and help kids learn how to cope with more complex emotions or situations. It is refreshing to hear kids' voices from around the world asking questions of author Victoria Kann at the ends of episodes, but the bulk of the listening is one-dimensional and, in a word, "pink-a-tastic."

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.
