Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Kids who love African animals will enjoy creating picturesque scenes of safari lands and watching the animals move around the landscape. Pango Build Safari is loaded with options for different landscape flora and fauna, rugged vehicles and campsite supplies, and even fencing for kids to make their very own wildlife sanctuary. Since there's no formal tutorial or many tips on how to build on Pango Build Safari, younger kids may become frustrated if they've never played with an open-ended building game like this before. But if kids explore the tools and experiment with the options, they'll likely be able to figure it out quickly, as the user interface is simple and intuitive. The most surprising part of Pango Build Safari for many kids may be viewing it from a first-person perspective of a Pango character after they've built a scene. It's enchanting to watch your scene spring to life and then take photos of the animals in action.
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.
