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.

fantastic visual/touch exploration of musicality and composition

This is fun for kids and adults. You can create a "score" simply by painting, which immediately gives sound. And you can play it back and scrub back and forth. So kids can quickly sketch a "shape" and see what it sounds like, change instruments, then just clear it away and try something else. you can play back either the way it's "written" or by the way you dragged your finger. You can switch between instrument sets, so hear what your shape sounds like with different instruments. Overall just a really direct fun experience of music and creation.
