A New Study Has Found Cartoons Do Not Reflect The Make Up Of Society.

: 07/17/2019 - 13:56

Children's television doesn't reflect the make up of society according to a new study.

The report 'Is TV Making Your Child Prejudiced?' claims children's TV fails to properly represent black, Asian and ethnic minority characters.

It also says kids TV cartoon 'Paw Patrol' has poor gender balance while 'My Little Pony' is lacking in class distinctions.

Psychotherapist and author Stella O’Malley says it's a missed opportunity for children to identify with characters.
