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.

Clever math app makes learning fun

I downloaded this app for my 5 year old, and I found that he was able to use it with some caveats: He could only use the first of three levels before it got way over his head, and he could only use the finger dragging method rather than the accelerometer. It's really clever conceptually and brings some kinesthetic elements to learning math that might benefit those kids who have trouble with math concepts or find math confounding/boring.

This works super well for my 9 yo, who has used it for several weeks now. She will likely graduate to marble math app from this jr app in a year or two. All the functions work as the expert review states. The other reviewer reported problems with the app that we don't have. It's fun and engaging, but still mostly math. (As opposed to some other games that claim to be math games but kids can almost avoid the math altogether - such as Prodigy.)
