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.

What’s It About?
To play CRAMBLE, first choose Cramble Quiz or Cramble Compare. Tap Cramble Quiz, and a clue appears. That clue is related to a question that compares two objects, animals, or food. Choose from three potential answers, and earn points based on time and number of correct answers. Tap Cramble Compare to view a fun fact that compares two objects ("If you stuff 6 donuts into a box, it would weigh as much as 1 cucumber."). Tap the name of the object or the arrows on the screen to change one or both of the objects and see new facts. If you want to share the fact via social media, email, or text, tap the send icon.
Is It Any Good?
This fun, lightly educational trivia game may be a great choice for a road trip or family game night. Cramble challenges users to think big, and small. The facts ("If you ate 10,647 light bulbs, you would gain the weight of one trampoline") and questions ("How many cucumbers would you have to stack up to match the height of one bulldozer?") in both the Quiz game and the Compare feature are silly, but they also make players think through factors such as weight, size, height, and more.
This app isn't high-tech and it doesn't dig deep into the hows or whys of the answers. There are no animated graphics or real images of the objects and animals in questions, just chalk drawings. If players want to learn more about the (often surprising) answers, they'll need to look elsewhere for details; Cramble doesn't provide anything beyond right or wrong. But for $0.99, it may be just enough of a conversation starter to spark kids' interest in learning more on their own.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about how Cramble uses estimates and generalities to come up with these questions. Are all mice exactly the same size? Is every brand of bulldozer made to one height specification? Did someone really stack 12,587 pineapples to see how many pineapples matched the height of Mt. Fuji?
If your playing Cramble with your kid, talk through the clues with them before answering the question that follows to practice applying information and to build critical thinking skills.
