Hilarious fun!

Love it! Putting your own face in is super fun. Especially funny when you shake it - makes a random goofy face that's always good for a laugh!

Whether you choose to upload photos of yourself and your friends, or just use the large library of pics already included with the app, HOME GENE-SPLICING KIT is addictive, creative fun. Within a mad-scientist laboratory setting, you can mix-and-match the eyes, nose, mouth, and hair from all sorts of different photos (be they human, animal, or monster) and create your own ulta-weird, often hilarious portraits. The tech behind the app is awesome, as your final hodgepodge creations will be very smoothly blended. Updates with new pics are being added all the time and, since you can always upload your own photos, there's an unending supply of new material to play with. Kids can play with what they would look like if they had Grandpa's nose and Mom's mouth -- or even the ears of the cat. This is great fun for all.

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.
