We here at RainbowMe Kids take the limits off what kids can imagine themselves to be.
We do that in two ways:
1. We create innovative experiences that celebrates diverse fairytale and folklore stories from around the world, and
2. We curate innovative and unique content that features main characters of color from around the web.
Our curated content we like to call RainbowMe Approved. When you see something is RainbowMe Approved, you know it has a positive image of a main character of color.
Below is a list of every RainbowMe Approved movie made by Disney Pixar and Dreamworks. They are in order by release date. Make sure to take a look at all of them!

Marcus attempts to speak with Renee, who is only able to mutter and make noises to express her feelings. When Marcus attempts to show off his paddling skills, Renee is unimpressed and starts rocking the boat.
